'300' Trailer Is a Killer - must see!!

"by the look on her face, women go wild for a battle hero - obviously..."

Frank Miller - you've got to love the guy's graphic novels - almost single handedly producing the best ever Batman stories (Dark Knight Returns / Strikes Again), kicking all sort of butt in his masterpiece series of Sin City (cracking film last year setting new standard in graphic novel screen realisation) and now his blistering combat epic '300' is going to hit the big screen next year... And thanks to many sources (freshvisual, and filmstalker to name but two of the coolest ones) you can now find links over to the trailer and boy... it looks good!!!!

Based on the insanely violent Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. , where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians; the '300' of the title comes from the crack band of soldiers who rode to meet the tens of thousands of enemy who were approaching and held them in mortal combat at a valley which prevented the enemy's numbers being the deciding factor...

As the hero screams at the end of the trailer 'this is the battle where few stood against the many!' and their actions are said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world's first democracy...

Factoring '300' on my must see list for 2007... See the trailer here: promo-trailer

That's one of the best promo trailers I've ever seen, the music and action builds (as it should) and we get glimpses of the daring and the defeaet. Great music, too.

Visually interesting. I notice it looks amazinly like the graphic novel. Very nice.

BTW, I don't think the gal in the poster is having warrior woozies--I think that's the oracle (the beauty amid the priest-beasts) in one of her trances.
