Like everything Warner Bros has given us for 300, the new production photos for the film can nearly be called a work of art. This film looks beautiful.
Movie Stills: 300
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.
Leonidas' Father (Tim Connolly) teaches his young son (Eli Snyder) the importance of a Spartan shield
Captain (Vincent Regan, third from right), Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and Stelios take their places at the front of the deadly Spartan phalanx
The misshapen Ephialtes (Andrew Tiernan), spirited away from Sparta by his parents before inspection, displays his skill with a spear
Leonidas warns the Persian Messenger to choose his words wisely as Captain and Gorgo look on
The Oracle Girl (Kelly Craig) slips into a trance and begins the process of interpreting the will of the gods
Robbed of sleep by the words of the Oracle, Leonidas seeks the counsel of his wife and queen, Gorgo (Lena Headey)
The 300, led by Leonidas, meet up with their allies, the Arcadians, led by Daxos on the journey to the Hot Gates
