First Trailer For 300 Is Here image
Despite all the hype 300 is a film thatís been pretty much off my radar. The promo trailer for the movie to hit the web today has changed my mind about that. I canít tell whether Iíll like the movie or not, but itís gotten my attention and Iím ready to give it a try.

The film, based on the Frank Miller graphic novel, depicts a war between the King of Sparta against the Persians at the Battle of Thermopylae. The trailer makes the film look like a combination of Troy and Hero with that definitive Frank Miller Sin City touch, only in color instead of black and white.

Itís that touch that makes me a little concerned though. In Sin City it served a purpose, building an intense Noir mood for the film. In 300 it looks like the entire movie is Greco-Roman art coming to life. Will that help serve the movie or make it an overly-stylized disaster with a few good lines? I guess weíll find out in April when the movie hits theaters. For now, check out the trailer below and decide for yourself.
