    I wish they based the move on the novel "Gates of Fire", but I am still VERY excited for this

    I thought no one was responding because they hated the idea. Glad to see it could have a following. I think a definite must see.

    i've been waiting for a new make of this film since i was in 8th grade and learned about this battle. motherfucking epic.


    edit : after watching the trailer i have mixed feelings. on one hand i think the movie will be absolutely badass. on the other hand i see things like this....

    [​IMG]

    in the trailer? what the fuck is that? i don't remember a cripple with ice skates for arms at the battle.

    i still remember my history teacher, mr. ryan i believe was his name, telling us with a grim smile about the most badass men ever to walk the earth. looks like this film might portray it. i hope they get some of the good quotes in it. i didn't see one in the trailer. double edit : teaser has the arrow/sun quote

    remember who had a hand in this, Frank Miller! It will not be totally realistic, thee will be some additions to make it more appealing to a broader group of people.

    still looks kickass, and I will be home from Kuwait to see it while on Leave!

    Yes its based on the comic/graphic novel so its not going to be a completely factual account. Still going to be amazing.

    Just saw the trailer, pretty cool. Sounds like a great film for IMAX. Are they going to release an IMAX version?

    He said I wish it was. It is based off Frank Miller's Graphic Novel. I need to go and find it, but I am in Kuwait, so ugh!

    in fact I am reading that book right now! :bowdown: The Gates of Fire, great read so far! Picked it up yesterday, halfway thru! So awesome!

    ugh, i just saw the first commercial for this on tv. and it looked bad compared to the ones online. no new segments shown, they just cut of 2 or 3 seconds from every "scene" shown in the trailers online.

    I'm glad I am not the only one to read this book. Great read and very realistic. I think the battle of Thermopoyle has to be greatest battle ever known. I mean come on 300 spartans vs more than 1 million Persians and they actually held their ground? Badass

    Well it wasn't just 300 Spartans, some others were also there. But yeah, the highlight warriors were Spartans!
