The first banner for 300: Rise of an Empire has arrived, offering a look at the film's logo. Directed by Noam Murro and produced by Zack Snyder, this official follow-up to Snyder's 300 will tell the story of Greek General Themistocles, who led Athens against Persian invaders in a battle that played out simultaneously with the Battle of Thermopylae (seen in the first film).

300: Rise of an Empire is currently slated for an August 2nd release date, but some speculate that will change in the very near future as Red 2 and 2 Guns are also set to open on that date. Hence, that is why we only see 2013 on this new artwork. September perhaps?
