World Exclusive: New 300 Artwork!
Feast your eyes on tasty posters here

04 January 2007  |  Written by

It’s 2007, and 300 still isn’t out, and frankly we’re getting antsy. But to tide us over as we wait for this epic tale of abs and biceps – er, Greeks and Persians – we’ve found some spiffy new one-sheet posters for the film, exclusively for you on Empire.
 
Feast your eyes on three of the main characters – Gerard Butler’s Leonidas, King of the Spartans, who launches a desperate effort to stop an army of 250,000 with a force of 300; Rodrigo Santoro’s chain-attired Xerxes, the Persian Emperor; and Lena Headey’s feisty and firey Queen Gorgo, Leonidas’ wife and herself part of the war effort. And as if that weren’t enough, you also get a glimpse of one of the film’s crazy Persian warriors, the gigantic chained “über-Immortal”, the scariest member of Xerxes’ personal guard, the 10,000 Immortals.

The film’s out on March 30, and also stars David Wenhan and Dominic West, with Zach “I remade Dawn of the Dead and they didn’t lynch me” Snyder directing, so we’ll just have to wait for our fix of blood, guts and pecs until then. Sigh. 84 days to go – the countdown starts here.

The Battle of Sin City
Anybody noticed how these posters follow the exact same formula as the Sin City ones? A series of posters each one focusing on one central character each, all of them in an iconic pose, each one with one of the best lines that hints as to the characters nature without actually giving anything away. For those uneducated on the subject Frank Miller wrote both Sin City and 300. And although these posters do kick ass visually they are pretty lazy. More

I think these are a little lack luster to be honest. Anybody know what agency did these? More

RE: World Exclusive: New 300 Artwork!
Just for the folk that think some of the trailer lines are a bit cheesy....most of them were infact reported by Herodoctus, (ancient Greek scribe guy), as being accurate or supposedly said at Thermopylae. The lines about 'dining in Hell', (or Hades if we are being picky), 'fighting them in the shade', and the 'one wild night' are all there in ancient text.  And anyway this is based on the FM graphic novel, and yes those lines are in there too.

RE:
Agreed, "You will not enjoy this" is not a very clever tag line for a poster, and come to think of it, as far as tag lines go, what i have seen has left me puzzled. Apart from the above, there is another awful line at the end of the new trailer..."we're in for one wild night!",...i mean this line sounds like it belongs in trailer to a John Hughes movie! But on the other hand i love the whole "Tonight we dine in Hell" and "THIS IS SPARTA" malarkey. I guess the jury's out, but i'm More

Dining in Hell? This film looks Heavenly actually. More

"You will not enjoy this!" Whatever they're trying to do with that line it's just a terrible tagline. More

Query
"You will not enjoy this!" isn't something you'd want written on a poster designed to promote your film to its potential audience, is it? I saw the trailer with Pan's Labyrinth, it looks incredible, backed with a bit of NIN too! Nice. More

RE: Not hungry
Fair play to ya, but i reckon exactly the opposite,..i think 300 will be if not the best, then definetely the coolest film of 2007. A bold statement i hear you cry,..well yes it is, but i can tell you that the the graphic novel is brilliant as are the two trailers i have seen, so if you like films that make you sit back in your chair wide eyed saying nothing but "coooooooool" every so often and think a bross between Braveheart and Sin City is a good thing,.... trust me, More

RE: Amazing
The images on the posters look great, ripped abs a-plenty. Although, allowing a moment's nit-picking, the font looks a tad clumsy, as if the poster were a fan work-up. I'd still hang them on my wall though!   L: Stevie Oddly, I'm pretty sure you missed 300 out of your preview of the big films of 2007 in your latest edition - tut tut!!! sp; I was thinking that yesterday too! Although technically it was a preview for the summer months, so misses out, being a March release. More

The graphic design on this is lovely and they make for ver cool posters but I still can't shift the feeling that the film just looks wrong. A lone opinion, I know. And he's saying "tonight, we dine in hell" like it's a good thing. He won't get anywhere with that attitude. More

The photos look very cool and the film looks amazing too. Oddly, I'm pretty sure you missed 300 out of your preview of the big films of 2007 in your latest edition - tut tut!!! Can't wait for it none-the-less. 2007 looks like a great year for big movie productions - bring it on!!!!! More
