[27.06.2008] Collider.com sprach bei den Saturn Awards mit den Produzenten Mark Canton, Gianni Nunnari und Bernie Goldmann...
[...] They announced they’re working on a new Blu-ray edition of the film and they dropped a bomb... they’re trying to make a sequel/prequel to the film.
At first I didn’t believe them, but later in the night I spoke to Zack Snyder again [..] and he confirmed what they said. He said Frank Miller is working on a new story of some kind and if they all really like it they’ll make it! [...]


[24.08.2007] Heute erscheint Frank Miller's "300" als Einzel-DVD, Blu-ray, HD-DVD und Doppel-DVD Collector's Edition !!!

[08.06.2007] Variety.com meldet...
Hollywood has its first resident videogame publisher.
Brash Entertainment, the private equity-backed game publisher co-founded by Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull, is coming out of stealth mode today with the news it has raised $400 million and will focus exclusively on games developed from movie, TV and music licenses.
Company has projects in the works based on movies from five studios and has multigame deals with several of them. It's already working on a dozen movie-based titles, including one based on Lionsgate's "Saw" franchise and another, sources confirmed, based on "300." First games will come out this holiday season. While Brash is remaining tight-lipped about its initial release slate, one title will almost certainly be tied to "Saw 3."
Warner Bros. will exclusively distribute all of the new company's games worldwide through its homevid operation, which recently started distributing games in North America for Eidos and Codemasters. Studio is expected to partner with Brash on several games, some of which it may co-finance and co-publish through its Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment vidgame division. [...]
Brash execs say they may consider original properties in the future, but for now, they're building the business entirely on licenses. Though the potential upside isn't as big, since it has to pay royalties to licensors and a distribution fee to WB, the young company will get the benefit of lower marketing costs by tying into studio ad campaigns when it releases day-and-date with movies, as Brash intends to do in most cases.
"It's a slightly different risk profile," granted Davis. "We may not have the breakout success of (hit original games) 'Gears of War' or 'Halo,' but we have a big ambition to produce high-quality, commercially successful games around licenses."
Because so many of its operations are outsourced, Brash has a lean staff of about 50 people, many of whom are game producers with previous experience working on licensed titles.
Given its headquarters in Hollywood and close partnerships with studios, Brash is aiming to work early in the development process with talent attached to movie, TV and music projects. [...]

The "300" DVD
Snyder said that there won’t be any changes to the film, but one of the scenes that they had to cut for the theatrical version - which "has these albino giants with elves riding on their backs, and they're shooting arrows at the Spartans" - will be debuting on the disc.
The "300" sequel
Snyder said there would only be a sequel if Frank Miller wrote it. Miller added that he knows "what the sequel would be". [...]

[15.03.2007] CS! meldet...
IMAX Corporation and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that "300: The IMAX Experience" contributed a record-setting $3.6 million of the $70,855,301 that the film grossed at the domestic box office opening weekend. "300: The IMAX Experience" played in 62 domestic IMAX® theaters, while 300 played in 3103 locations across the country.
Directed by Zack Snyder, the Mark Canton/Gianni Nunnari Production launched midnight Friday with sold out performances in 57 IMAX locations, which added to the film's opening weekend per screen average of $58,000, a new record for a Hollywood IMAX title. 300 also shattered every opening weekend record for an IMAX Hollywood simultaneous release, playing to sell-out crowds around the country.

[12.03.2007] CS! meldet...
[...] Director Zack Snyder's adaptation of Frank Miller's epic graphic novel 300 set a new March record with an estimated opening of $70 million from 3,103 locations. Starring Gerard Butler as King Leonidas who leads the Spartans against the massive Persian army, the movie surpassed previous March record holder Ice Age: The Meltdown, which collected $68 million its first weekend last year. Budgeted in the mid-$60 million range, the Warner Bros. release also marks the third-highest debut ever for an R-rated movie, trailing just The Matrix Reloaded ($91.8 million) and The Passion of The Christ ($83.8 million). It is now also the top opening of 2007 so far, beating Ghost Rider's $45.4 million from February. [...]

[10.03.2007] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Moriarty...
[...] 300 isn’t a film that demands an in-depth conversation. It’s not an intellectual experience. It's a purely visceral one. It's one of those films where words just plain come up short. This is a film that you have to see in a theater in order to appreciate the impact, the louder the better, a film that would work just as well silent as it does with sound. It’s pure cinema, and although I don’t agree that it’s all surface and no style, as many critics have said so far, but in this case, the surface is so magnificent, so engrossing, and so exciting that this surface is enough.

[08.03.2007] Bei JoBlo.com gibt es eine Kritik (10/10)...
[...] This is one of those rare films for which the trailer gets you jacked up for the release and then when you do go see it, the movie surpasses even those expectations and blows you away!! Fanboys, the sci-fi geeks, the fantasy guys, the comic book nerds and I think even "regular folk" will enjoy this! [...]

[20.01.2007] Bei Marketwire gibt es Infos zum Frank Miller's "300" Soundtrack...
[...] The "300" Original Motion Picture Soundtrack -- the innovative score to the upcoming feature film "300" -- will be released by Warner Bros. Records on March 6th, three days before the movie [...]
The film's score was written and produced by Tyler Bates, a composer best known for his work on the zombie horror films "The Devil's Rejects" (directed by Rob Zombie) and 2004's "Dawn of the Dead," directed by Zack Snyder, who also wrote and directed "300."
For the film, which recounts the epic Battle of Thermopylae that pitted 300 Greeks against the massive Persian Army in 480 BC, Snyder asked Bates to develop a compelling overall sound that would heighten the audience's emotional reaction to the Spartans' heroism and sacrifice. To do that, Bates created a sweeping orchestral and choral soundscape, recorded at the Beatles' famed Abbey Road Studios, that embraced a tonal palette unusual for studio films. Iranian-born singer Azam Ali -- whose haunting, exotic vocals have also graced various television and film soundtracks, including, most recently, "The Nativity Story" -- supplies the voice of Sparta and the Persian threat.
"My intent was to stay true to the inspiration of the film and that of the Spartans' freedom and will," Bates says. "The greatest challenge was to bead a musical thread throughout the film's ever-changing landscape of visual art, while sustaining its epic and emotional qualities. I had to approach it in a style as inventive as the film itself."
Snyder has nothing but praise for Tyler's score. "It moves the film into mythology," he says, "cauterizing the images as you view them, making them something they could never be alone."
In addition to the 25-track CD, Warner Bros. Records will release a special edition deluxe-version Digipak, which includes a 16-page booklet as well as three two-sided trading cards. [...]


[05.01.2007] Bei CS! gibt es einen Setbericht... AICNzeigt sehenswerte UK-Poster... Ausserdem gibt es bei AICN eine Kritik von Saffy...
[...] This movie truly merges violence with artistic sensibility. Snyder manages to make the movie equivalent of the statue David. We take school children to see a naked man and it is OK because it is art. This movie elevates gratuitous violence above vulgarity.
Much like "Master and Commander" and "Gladiator" this movie is going to play so well to an unexpected female demographic. [...]


[14.12.2006] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik von Lady Sheridan...
[...] It's kick-ass. Unlike Sin City, I don't feel it is style over substance--it very much keeps the drama and serious "this is for freedom" tone of the book. You could title this "Frank Miller's Braveheart" and not be far off. [...]

[13.12.2006] Bei AICN gibt es auch Kritiken von 2 Damen...
[...] I've never seen such gorgeous and choreographed violence, and I do mean that as a compliment. A true dance of death, with continually escalating set pieces of savage beauty. [..]

[12.12.2006] Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere Kritik...
[...] I dug the hell out of 300. Once Gerard Butler heads out with his 300 Spartan warriors to engage the advancing threat of the Persian army (millions strong), the movie doesn't let up. The battle scenes are incredibly well shot, beautiful... unlike anything you've seen before. You can see moments of LORD OF THE RINGS style pop up, mostly when you see the full armies from a distance, but the actual fighting is brutal, exaggerated, bloody and just plain old testosterone-driven cool.
The whole thing is exaggerated, not just the fighting. The colors, the costumes, the themes, the dialog, the villains, the heroes, everything in-between. Just like in Frank Miller's book.
It eased my mind a little when Snyder said during the Q&A afterwards that there were still over 100 VFX shots that were being tweaked and finished because there were some shots that looked a little cartoony. [...]

[18.11.2006] Bei AICN gibt es eine weitere Kritik...
[...] The movie ran approx. 1 hr. 50 min., seemed about 95 percent done with only a few VFX to be cleaned up. Opening and closing credits were in place and though the soundtrack was in place, I don't know for sure if it was Tyler Bates' finalized score. [...]
While Gerard Butler may have the most fun playing the Spartan king, Lena Headey show what a Spartan woman is like, a mirror of the fighting man whose strength of character is no less strong then that of the men. She gives both a warm and flinty strength to the Queen. And she shows to NEVER underestimate the cunning and ferocity of a Spartan woman! I think her upcoming stint as Sarah Conner in "The Sarah Conner Chronicles" is excellently cast.
The action scenes are very well-done, getting two or three of the four spontaneous outburst of applause during the film. The first battle between the Spartans and the Persians gives you an amazing feeling of the power behind an army when it connects with another. I will say that the amount of under and over-cranking of the film speed does start to tire but I believe it fit with what the nature of the film. With only one or two exceptions, I felt that I never lost track of what was happening in the action as has been the case in some of the fights sequences in Gladiator and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. [...]


[16.11.2006] Bei AICN gibt es eine Kritik zu einer noch nicht fertiggestellten Fassung...
[...] Butler is absolutely perfect for this role... he really nails it. He even has some very cheesy dialog that he is able to completely pull off. The heavy-handed dialog proves too much for some of the actors though and it comes out corny and unassured. However, since the whole film plays like a meticulously crafted graphic novel, even the mis-spoken dialog is mostly forgivable and at times almost charming. The script is solid but more attention paid to the adolescent Spartan and slightly more to the epilogue instead of the 1hr+ of fighting would have been beneficial.
THE PHOTOGRAPHY: Oddly, this is where both my biggest compliments and my biggest complaints lie. Let me start off by saying that this film is a monumental artistic achievement. At times I was so distracted by how beautiful the shots and compositions were that I actually stopped paying attention to what was being said in some of the scenes. The freedom of the green screen shoot allowed the artists to create an amazing world and, although it is based on our world, it is something we have never seen before. With that said, let me get to my biggest criticism. There are a lot of shots that seem "small". A number of the shots seem like there need to be a lot more people in them (sometimes the 300 looks more like the 40). This is where the green screen can be a killer since the only depth in the shots comes from what can be created by the effects artists. I found on several occasions that this two-dimensionality took me out of the otherwise great film. Instead of paying attention to the story, I was more concerned with where the hell everyone else was. This problem goes beyond the number of people in the composition though and has more to do with the depth of field and just an overall feeling of space. Along those lines, I didn’t feel there were enough "scope" shots. Although it looked amazing I was reminded too often that this is a green screen movie. Since the film isn’t finished it is very possible that these issues will be fixed, but it was a major problem I had with the film.
CONCLUSION: Overall, this is a great film that, along with Sin City and Sky Captain, will change everything. [...]

[19.08.2006] Bei AICN gibt es positive Stimmen zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] Zach Snyder has created a masterpiece. Imagine "Sin City" meets "Gladiator" and you have "300." A movie which will go down in the history books and will be talked about for years to come.
Each scene is filled with breathtaking imagery, at times I could have sworn that I was looking at paintings by Da Vinci moving on the screen. Major kudos to the special effects team as well as to the cinematographer. The movie is an artistic masterpiece. For a movie which isn’t coming out for seven months, the special effects looked nearly complete. There were a few shots here and there which need some work but for the most part everything looked great. If you thought the stuff in Sin City looked amazing wait until you catch this flick.
As for the cast, Gerard Butler in the lead was absolutely fantastic. I’m convinced that if you look up the word badass in the dictionary, his picture will show up. He’s the fucking epitome of cool and this is the movie which is going to finally launch his career. He’s been producing amazing work for the past few years (i.e. The Phantom of the Opera, Dear Frankie) but this is the movie which is going to make him a star. He brings Leonidas alive and is believable as both a husband as well as a warrior.
His wife Queen Gorgo played by the beautiful Lena Headey is absolutely vicious. She hasn’t really had a movie which lets her shine but with this she can finally showcase her talent.
One thing which was so great about the movie was how much it felt like a hard R film of the past. It seems in recent years, movies have worked so hard to achieve the ever so desired PG-13. [...]

[17.10.2005] Heute wurde in Montreal mit den Dreharbeiten für die Comicverfilmung "300" begonnen...

[02.11.2004] IGNFF meldet...
In an interview with UGO, director Zack Snyder talked about his planned film adaptation of Frank Miller's historical graphical novel miniseries 300. Snyder is rewriting Michael Gordon's screenplay adaptation and will also direct the epic about the Battle of Thermopylae.
"I'm really excited about 300. I was just on the phone with Frank [Miller] yesterday talking about the script that my partner, Kurt Johnstad, and I wrote. We got his take on it because we are doing a rewrite," said Snyder. "The script is based almost exactly on the comic book, and all we did was add a second story with King Leonidas' wife trying to rally the troops to support her husband. We wanted a little more girl-power in the movie. We are about to shoot a test for Warner Bros. because they want to see how the comic book comes to life and what it looks like."
Snyder revealed that the filmmakers have already "done some conceptual art for the movie so far. We did a maquette of Ephialtes and he looks exactly as he does in the comic book. We've also been working on the immortals."
And regardless of whether another Frank Miller film adaptation, Sin City, proves to be a box office flop, "300 would still happen because they are really looking at the performance of a movie like Alexander."


[17.02.2004] IGNFF liefert eine Kritik zum Drehbuch...
[...] The actual battle of Thermopylae spans most of the story, taking place in segments. My favorite one wasn't necessarily the final stand, which was powerful and poignant, but rather a sequence three-quarters of the way through where the Persians' seemingly invincible elite corps, The Immortals, make the unfortune mistake of raiding the Spartan camp. Things don't go quite as they had expected. 'Nuff said.
The scale of 300's battle scenes was beyond epic. They are akin to those depicted in the Lord of the Rings trilogy (and possibly Troy, judging by its latest trailer). The spectacle of thousands upon thousands of Persians storming this craggy mountain pass would have seemed unfilmable just a few years ago but in this post-Helm's Deep era anything is possible thanks to CGI.
Hopefully, these epic battles won't be scaled down too much due to budgetary concerns but there's no denying that this film will be hugely expensive. Fortunately, it will be worth every cent. [...]
