Movie Night: 300



So i guess its time to break out the big guns and finaly throw this down.
300 dosent need any introduction but none the less i shall endevor to do so and provide links to Wikipedia so you have a clue what im talking about.

300 is the film adaptation of the graphic novel 300 by Frank Miller, and is a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae. The film is directed by Zack Snyder with Frank Miller attached as an executive producer and consultant, and was shot mostly with bluescreen to duplicate the imagery of the original comic book.

Spartan King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fight to the last man against Persian King Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his army of over one million soldiers, while in Sparta, Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey) attempts to rally support for her husband. The story is framed by a voice-over narrative by the Spartan soldier Dilios (David Wenham). Through this narrative technique, various fantastical creatures are introduced, placing 300 within the genre of historical fantasy.

As always links are time limited and can and will be removed if any complaint is noted (as per my standard policy for all films on AriesAntics) so use them while you can!

now break out the popcorn and i'll see you tomorrow!
