Different director no Gerald butler(obviously). Seems like another quick money sequel with cheap actors. You can tell especially because the fact that 300 in the title makes no sense because it has pretty much nothing to do with it. They are just using the name 300 to get tickets sold. I loved 300 but that movie was unique. This one seems like a copy cat with worst story.

I been waiting to see this trailer. Movie was supposed to come out this summer but got bumped back. It looks alright, I don't have high expectations. It has to be better than immortals. Plus Eva Green is in it.

???

they why make a movie about the coolest historical warriors in human history... if its not going to be historical...


That's like making a movie about aberham Lincoln, and making him a vampire hunter or something...

Its like having a TV show about football, and only focusing on High School drama...

Or making a musical about the US constitution...

Its like having an epic movie take place in Russia, and all the actors are ENGLISH!!!!

 

 

 

What made 300 cool, was it was a dramatized, actionized version of the historical events...

Dude TKain you realize that this isn't about some kind of Spartan empire right? it's called the Greek Empire

 

"After its victory over Leonidas' 300, the Persian Army under the command of Xerxes marches south towards the major Greek city-states. The Democratic city of Athens, first on the path of Xerxes' army, bases its strength on its fleet, led by admiral Themistocles. Themistocles is forced to an unwilling alliance with the traditional rival of Athens, oligarchic Sparta whose might lies with its superior infantry troops. But Xerxes still reigns supreme in numbers over sea and land."

 

 

Chill out dude

If anything, this era is after the fall of the Greeks as a major power...

I will totally watch it, but I wish more historically accurate movies were being made...

The Persians were a great power, and they had built a massive empire
The Greeks were a collection of city states that warred with each other constantly...

It would be some time before a young Macedonian would unite the Greeks, and build the last empire out of the agean...

The subsequent battles in the years following thermopolyee were rather quite boring...

If I remember herotadus right, after the battle of thermopolyee, the Greeks mostly united, and abandoned the city of Athens, and fell back on the southern peniseulia, and waited at the thin piece of land that connected Athens to the southern peninsula where the Sparta was

Will the film show the Persian sacking of the abandoned Athens?

Hoplite formations are the most boring military unit in war...
300 barely showed any Spartans fighting as a hoplite unit... And totally disrespected the 5000+ Greek allies that joined he Spartans...

This is one of my favorite periods in history... So I hate it when it gets sensationalized and dramatized...

Herodotus would not approve of what his work turned into

Does that poster remind anyone of a game of thrones poster, have that fire color and the other side a cold weather color?
