A quick fill in for those of you who don't know: 300 is a close adaptation of Frank Miller's (he's the Sin Citycreator) epic graphic novel of the same name. It tells the story of 300 valiant Spartans who fight a ferocious battle against an insanely larger Persian army. They lose, of course, but they lose in a very impressive and heroic fashion, thus inspiring the rest of Greece to unite against the Persian menace. It's a grand story, and Frank Miller's fanciful retelling is well worth your time.

Director Zack Snyder and the good folks at Warner Bros. had originally announced a March 16, 2007 release date for the film, which has been under production for some time now. Unfortunately, they have now backed down on said date, and 300 has been downgraded to a TBA 2007 release. You can hold out hope for it getting bumped up a week or two, but typically this means the film is movin' on back. Let's hope it is worth the wait.
