I’ve not read the Frank Miller graphic novel, but I am familiar with the historical events it is based on (Battle of Thermopylae, 480 B.C.E.). I have to say, this trailer looks very surreal, almost more like a music video for some bleeding edge musician than a historical action movie (i.e. Troy, etc). Does paraphrase the coolest line in the war… when told that the Persian army was so vast that the arrows of its archers would darken the sky, the Greeks responded: “So much the better, we can fight in the shade.” Movie trailer and links after the cut.
