I Hate This Movie.
You're a very moronic individual.
Chill out bro. No need for the hostility . But you've got a point, I haven't read the book, but by the comparisons of the movie to the comic, it appears to be pretty darn faithful.
So a Graphic Novel is more easy to adapt into a movie than a ComicBook?
What's it about? Could someone give me a brief synopsis?
They are supposed to have some video logs soon and some other cool stuff. Gotta say -- this looks fantastic!
1) Did I say that? No.
2) Now that you bring it up, yes. A comic wouldn't hold enough content to really sustain a movie in my opinion. A graphic novel has story arcs, multiple characters, and the like which would make it easer to be more faithful to in a movie.
Yea,its sorta like Troy.
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 Millers (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale.
Warner Bros. Pictures Presents in Association with Legendary Pictures and Virtual Studios, a Mark Canton / Gianni Nunnari Production, 300. Directed by Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead), the film stars Gerard Butler (Phantom of the Opera), Lena Headey (The Brothers Grimm), David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Vincent Regan (Troy), Rodrigo Santoro (Love Actually) and Dominic West (The Forgotten). Gianni Nunnari (The Departed), Mark Canton, Bernie Goldmann (Land of the Dead) and Jeffrey Silver (Training Day) are the producers. Snyder and Kurt Johnstad adapted the graphic novel by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley, with a previous draft of the script by Michael Gordon. The executive producers are Frank Miller, Deborah Snyder, Craig J. Flores, Thomas Tull, William Fay and Benjamin Waisbren. The creative behind-the-scenes team is led by director of photography Larry Fong, production designer James Bissell, editor Bill Hoy and costume designer Michael Wilkinson. Music is by Tyler Bates.
The best and easiest way is to put it like this, 300 guys fight to the death agianst a much bigger army.
I couldnt aggree with you more! And this film looks quite epic.
The production site looks awesome! Big budget, great effects, cool graphics novel-to-script, buff looking actors (Gerard Butler as King Leonidas looks fantastic!), and a big studio behind it.
I'm going to keeping check on Zack's site -- I hear it had over 6000 hits the first day it opened.
The first video blog is really impressive. Too bad I couldn't save it. Did anyone get the link to the real video?
Okay guys go to the official site the first producion diary is up. And it is pretty cool.
It doesn't work.
Try 'Save as'.
It only saves a 4kb file. At least to me. Hope it works for you.
There should be a link in this page.
It's the same.
It's in Windows Player and Real Player in case there's a problem with Quicktime.
I like what Im seeing. Never read the Graphic Novel, but Im familier with the Legend (was it a Manowar song?). Zakk really impressed me with Dawn of the Dead, the guys got a great eye for action.
Cool stuff Miller is the man!
Thanks,my quicktime isnt working.
Gerard Butler as King Leonidas. Kind of gives a flavor of what this movie will look like. Beautiful, powerful, brutal and untimately, heroic!
yea,it looks really colorful.
