Readers I didn't even need to ask my very smart 'we can't wait' pals why they so desperately await this movie. The answer was perfectly obvious...
History! I mean, who doesn't want to see it? Duh.
And what better way is there to learn about ancient Sparta and the Persians?
They should teach this stuff in schools.
You can see the trailer here. Zach Snyder is the man behind the wheel here and you may recall that he directed that superb remake of Dawn of the Dead a couple of years ago. Remember how dense and literate that was? This time he's adapting a wordy Frank Miller novel, so hit the books before seeing 300 on March 9th. The more you know going in the less likely you'll be confused by all those long talky political sequences.
UPDATE: New vlog footage with Gerard Butler for more 300 action. [src]
