300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae. King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his huge Persian army. Vastly outnumbered King Leonidas inspires his warriors to fight against insurmountable odds and their valour and ultimate sacrifice are an inspiration to the Greeks to unite against the Persian invasion.

Based on Frank Miller's epic graphic novel, 300 is directed by Zack Snyder and stars Gerard Butler and Lena Headey.
