OK, so the release date has been shunted back to early 2014, but we are still pretty excited about 300: Rise Of An Empire.

The follow-up, although it is pitched as a prequel, to the 2006 box-office smash, this promises plenty more inventive carnage as Greek general Themistocles battles an invading army of Persians, naturally featuring some mortals-turned-Gods.

Directed by Noam Murro this time around, although still written and produced by Zack Snyder, the flick has upped the promotional activity with the release of this new one-sheet teaser poster.

We reckon it looks pretty neat, and clearly nestles itself along with the marketing blitz the first entry enjoyed.
