Do you know that another interesting movie about Ancient Greece is coming up after Troy and Alexander? The name is "Gates of Fire" (Thermopyles in Greek) and is based upon a novel (which is based on real history) of Steven Pressfield. Is a battle between 300 Spartans and 2.000.000 Persians (my opinion :the most legendary battle in history). If anyone knows about this movie please let me know.
I have heard another movie based upon that battle is coming called "300" as the name of a comic book with the same concept.

Although I am very much looking forward to seeing Gates of Fire on the big screen (rumour has it George Clooney will be Leonidas) it should be noted that the book by Pressfiled is a fictitious story based around a true event.
The numbers realisticall were actually 500 000 - 750 000 Persians, still a very inspiring story nevertheless
