Blog Number 27 - Warner Bros. $60 million gamble on Frank Miller's '300'

Here is a link to an article which appeared this morning relative to Frank Miller's '300' movie from Variety.com. Rather than being redundant, please access the following link to hear the latest about '300'.

If you double click the title of this blog, the link will forward you directly to the article.

I would like to hear what you have to say about the other movies such as the 'Gates of Fire' by Steven Pressfield or the proposed 'The 300 Spartans' remake @ the 300 Spartan Warriors google group. Do you think this movie is a $60 million gamble?

Many thanks to Alex, good on ya mate!!!

If this movie depicts 'The Phantom of Thermophlae',I'll never get weary of going to the theater and I'll recommend the film to my friends.When I heard that the seats for the audience grows older and older using CGI in 'The Phantom of the Opera',I went to see it at the beginning.Thus something wonderful urges me to look ahead.I always gamble with my money and time.

I believe that with a $60-70 million budget which incorporates CGI, Frank Miller's '300' will definitely be able to recoup its money and make even more.

In Japan'the Trojan horse'and 'Spartan education'is common knowledge.My Japanese-English dictionary has both words.Sad to say,I came to hear of the king and the battle for the first time.We(I) should see the film and dig up hidden hero.

Once '300' is released, many more people will become aware of King Leonidas and that is one of the good things about Frank Miller's story!

Cheers,
