300 the movie

I can't think of a movie that I was so excited about than the movie 300; a faithful adaption of Frank Millers graphical novel also called 300.

I enjoyed the movie trailer a lot when it was first published, more blown away by the trailer for the film 300 than any other movie trailer in a long time.

The visuals are so stunning and the battle of Thermopylae was probably one of the most important ones in Europe's history.

While the movie is definitely not a faithful historic adaption of the battle, as it lacks historic accuracy, the directors interpretation of the events could bring the battle and what it meant for Europe closer to an audience that probably never heard about it before.

And even if you are not interested at all in the historic aspects, you may still enjoy the movie as it offers a unique visual style and a compelling story.

Take a look at the trailers below or download the HD versions at Apples trailer website. Enjoy..

We had to remove the original trailers that we have embedded here on this post. We did however find the main 300 movie trailer on YouTube rather quickly and have embedded it for your viewing please below.

It is rather interesting that there are multiple trailers available on YouTube with different play times. The longest trailer that I could find for the movie 300 is embedded below. It has a play time of more than 3 minutes and includes many remarkable scenes of the movies.

If you are interested in a more historic narration of what has happened at the battle of Thermoplyae, I recommend you look at the Gates of Fire novel. While still a narration, it is more accurate when it comes to the events and definitely a good read for anyone who is interested in what really happened.

Go tell the Spartans, stranger passing by, that here obedient to their laws we lie.
Thus reads an ancient stone at Thermopylae in northern Greece, the site of one of the world's greatest battles for freedom. Here, in 480 B.C., on a narrow mountain pass above the crystalline Aegean, 300 Spartan knights and their allies faced the massive forces of Xerxes, King of Persia. From the start, there was no question but that the Spartans would perish.
