300 trailer

This is the trailer for a new movie called "300," which seems to depict the epic Battle of Thermopylae, in which the Spartan King Leonidas and a small group of soldiers (around 300 of them, according to legend), fought a brutal battle against King Xerxes and his huge Persian army in what was believed to be the only road that Xerxes could take to invade the rest of Greece.

If you're a literary purist, you might not find this trailer all that exciting (since some elements of mythology seem to be present), but you've got to admit that the aesthetics are just phenomenal...




Has anyone else noticed how popular Nine Inch Nails' old songs are becoming in movie trailers?

Thanks to Rufus for the submission!
Thanks to Vern for teaching me about this battle all those years ago.
