New poster arrives online for 300: Rise Of An Empire

300: Rise Of An Empire has released a new poster online, featuring Sullivan Stapleton’s General Themistokles bringing his sword down with extreme prejudice.

The new film will take place before, during and after the events of the first film, as the battle for Greece moves away from the dusty battlefield and onto the high seas.

Themistokles is the Greek officer charged with halting the advancing Persian navy, with God-King Xerxes pouring much of his strength into an ocean-bound assault.

Said navy will be headed up by the fearsome Artemesia (Eva Green), who might not have a CGI six-pack, but looks as though she knows how to bark out an order or two...

Directed by Noam Murro and co-starring the returning Lena Headey, David Wenham and Rodrigo Santoro, 300: Rise Of An Empire will open in the UK on 7 March 2014.
