300 Teaser Trailer - video powered by Metacafe

300 is a historical epic film directed by Zack Snyder, scheduled to be released in 2007. The film is adapted from Frank Miller's graphic novel of the same name about the Battle of Thermopylae. Miller is involved as an executive producer. The film stars Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Rodrigo Santoro and David Wenham. 300 is slated for a March 9, 2007 release.

Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is an adaptation of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes (Santoro) 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 freedom.

The MPAA has issued an R for graphic battle sequences throughout, some sexuality and nudity.

The film is employing the "digital backlot" technique. It was shot at the now-defunct Icestorm Studios in Montreal with the actors against bluescreens with computer generated imagery later being used to create backgrounds. This technique was most recently used on Sin City, also based on a comic by Frank Miller. However, Sin City was shot with 1080p High-Definition cameras, while this film is being shot on traditional celluloid.
