I'm a good bowler, and a good man.

The idea of 300: Rise of an Empire having a PG-13 rating honestly makes me chuckle. After all, who would want to watch such a movie - with all its warriors fighting to the death and such - in a sanitized, kid-friendly version?

Don't you go to a 300 film expecting a lil' bit of violence? Anyway, fear not. The 300 sequel has been classified R, meaning it contains "strong sustained sequences of stylized bloody violence throughout, a sex scene, nudity, and some language."

The film focuses in on The Battle of Artemisium, a naval battle between some Greek city-states and the Persian empire. And we're promised a deep look into three characters in particular, Themistocles () and Artemisia I () of Caria, and Xerxes () of Persia (we'll be finding out how he became the 'God King'!). And here's three new posters of them to boot:

The taglines are funny. Poor Athens already has enough on its plate (austerity and all that jazz) without Xerxes proclaiming 'ATHENS WILL DIE'. I can already hear him growling the line. Regardless, I'm still just relieved we aren't going to see a tamer 300: Rise of an Empire. Violence is this franchises USP (or at least for me it is!). March 7th 2014 can't come soon enough! Everybody else feeling the same excitement?
