Didn't see anything on here about the trailer. Looks interesting but not quite what I expected.

Uh, well, I'm kinda speechless. :uhoh:

I guess I was expecting something a little less fanciful.

For those looking for a Historical re-enactment, they'll hate it.

For those looking for Miller's Graphic Novel brought to life, it couldn't be any more beautiful.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I love Frank Miller's work, and will see it solely based on that. I would see pretty much anything he put out.

Not many realize how much Frank's been involved in. The guy is an artist.

Too bad Alan Moore's stuff got hijacked by the Wachoski Bros... Hopefully they won't lib-**** The Watchmen should they get around to producing it.

I'll be there. Looks interesting.

I am still hoping Gates of Fire will be made into a movie. It was a much better telling of story than 300.

P.S. I'll still probably see it, I like most of Frank Miller's work, I just feel that Steven Presfield tells the story better.

There is no production start date for this project yet. With Michael Mann committed to directing Collateral for a 2004 release, it's likely not going to happen any sooner than 2005 or so.

The visuals in the trailer are fantastic.

NRO had this letter sent to them today:

Dear Jonah,

I saw 300 earlier this year, before all the effects and music was in place. The imagery is straight from the comic, but the acting of the leads is superb (if you can get past physical specimens that look like the front cover to "The Advocate"). It is a fairly unsubtle, and propagandistic rebuke to the middle east and their assault on wester culture. It's an allegory to what may come soon, and how we need belligerance and courage to face up to those that wish to preserve our way of life. A few scenes with a high creep factor, but a very strong and tightly directed film. Look forward to watching it again when it is done. It's not for everyone, and I expect VDH to be less than thrilled with how fast and loose it plays with some of the History, as it's sort of a Shakespearan treatment of history. But it is very entertaining.

Looks pretty interesting...

It looks like a crappy comic book.

October 7, 2006, 05:21 PM
No it looks like a well done comic book,:D

It's one of the best graphic novels ever IMO and I'm eagerly awaiting this movie.

October 7, 2006, 06:27 PM
Looks interesting, I'll watch it.

Imagine my surprise when I see that a buddy of mine from years ago did the music for the movie.

Nice choice: either get a myspace account or install a player I'd rather not have on the machine.

Guess I'll wait for the DVD.
