Most Americans are pretty ignorant of history, especially when it doesn't involve something to do with America directly. However in Greece, the Battle of Thermopylae is a story well known.
Graphic novelist Frank Miller who gave us the visually stunning film Sin City has decided to take on the Battle of Thermopylae head on and tell the story of courage in the face of overwhelming odds. And true to Miller's unique cinematic style, the film looks mind-blowingly cool.
Miller's style takes a lot from the dynamic and bold action of his graphic novels. Everything looks larger than life. Surreal. Extraordinary. Over the top. Combine that with Trent Reznor's thundering "Just Like You Imagined" and you have a teaser trailer that honestly gives me goosebumps.
Awesome. Just.....absolutely awesome.
