You have to check out this movie trailer for a film called 300. I'm really looking forward to seeing this in March 2007. One of the greatest last stands in history took place in 480 B.C., when the most badass unit of soldiers ever defended a narrow mountain pass in Greece against a much larger invading force.
"Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy. The film brings Miller’s (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale."
