Badass movie coming out too long from now

i was pissed i found this so early but i have to share the pain of waiting with more people. The movie is called 300 and is based on a novel by Frank Miller. Heres the trailer, (to me) it looks incredible.

Ya it definitely looks BadAss!!
The movie was actually shot in Montreal Canada where i live and i got to chill with the lead actor Gerald Butler at my friends club.
He's a very cool guy and he told me the movie will be sick.

The visuals look soreal. I'd love to see an ancient epic similar to "Gladiator" with all the latest special effects. I just hope the fiction isn't too corny.

really looking forward to it. if anyone is interested in the events that the story/movie is based off it, search "300 spartans" or "sparta" on wikipedia, and you can find the history of that battle between the spartans and the greeks.

It's pretty easy to find a torrent of the Frank Miller graphic novel that it's based on. It should stick pretty close from what I've seen of the trailer ... and the cool thing is that the entire movie is centered on a battle. No 10min gloss over and then a bunch of character development/love story plot. Just lead-up to battle and battle. Tiny bit of character development, enough so that you understand where the Spartan King came from.

The battle is the Battle of Thermopylae, for a quicker search, and it was fought between the Hellenes (Greeks) and the Persians.

The History Channel did an episode on the Battle of Thermopylae a few years back......it was good! Hopefully, the movie will stay closed to it......

Because after watching 3 hours of "Alexander the Great" on the History Channel......the movie SUCK big time!
