300 – The movie

I don’t usually put much faith in movie previews anymore but the new trailer for 300 caught my interest as it look to be a visual feast of cinematograhy and effects. I can only hope does not become another version of “The Cell” or “Sin City” where they spent so much time of those two areas that they forgot to write a story anyone cared about.

300 is based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller and is a retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy. The entire process of creating this visual treat is documented in their blog where you can get all the details your heart desires.

    I heard bits-n-pieces of the herald of this epic. If the movie is a shadow of the trailer it will be the fulcrum of immersive theater. I expect this film to change how we benchmark action on the big screen. Damn this looks good!
