Zack Snyder's 300 Gets An Honest Trailer

Zack Snyder's 300 Gets An Honest Trailer

With the release of 300: Rise of an Empire soon approaching, Screen Junkies figured it was a good time to produce an "Honest Trailer" for Zack Snyder's visually-stunning action movie 300.

The epic graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City) assaults the screen with the blood, thunder and awe of its ferocious visual style faithfully recreated in an intense blend of live-action and CGI animation. Retelling the ancient Battle of Thermopylae, it depicts the titanic clash in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army. Experience history at swordpoint. And moviemaking with a cutting edge.

Actors: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, David Wenham, Rodrigo Santoro
Directors: Zack Snyder * Writers: Zack Snyder, Kurt Johnstad, Michael B. Gordon

This was really funny!
SageMode - 2/25/2014, 11:24 AM
Lmao. Had tears from laughing

Just when I thought I was over Honest Trailers...they come out with one that is really funny.

Admittedly, it helps that I think 300 is one of the worst films ever made.

This movie inspired a lot of fat slobs to start working out the same way Brad Pitt did in Fight Club.

JoeMomma29 - 2/25/2014, 11:26 AM
LOL! You know someone is over exaggerating so they can troll!

Did "Naked Men Screaming 2" already come out?

If it has the same unintentional laugh out loud comedy....I might check it out some hungover morning after it's available for download.

Why is screen junkies so anti DC?? honestly, how are you gonna put down the man who made superman awesome again and is gonna make the Justice League a thing?

Speaking of trailers:

Thecondor14 - 2/25/2014, 11:45 AM
Don't know if anyone on this site has put this out yet but if you watch their "WTF is Guardians of the Galaxy" vid that pops up after this one you get to see and hear, footage of Rocket talking.
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 11:48 AM
The only thing I didn't like about that movie were the useless monsters. Also, I found the lack of Greek actors disturbing.

In Sparta they did abuse children so they could become tough. And they killed them if they weren't good enough. At least that's what they say, maybe just people in Athens said that because they [frick]ing hated the Spartans.
driver - 2/25/2014, 11:49 AM
A lot of Pumped Up oily Men BUT STILL TOP GUN footage was more GAY!)
Love 300!!!
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 11:50 AM
@Thecondor14 Marvel has already released that video. It was called Meet the Guardians of the Galaxy: Rocket.
GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 11:50 AM
@annramm113: I see no bias with screen junkies. They make fun of every film. Is there a marvel film they did not make fun of?

300 just works so well because the film practically makes fun of itself. I made the wife watch it a few weeks back just to see if it was as bad as I remembered it being. We laughed so hard we were crying at the unintentional comedy. I have to admit, I enjoyed myself...but specifically because it was so bad.

GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 11:51 AM
OK. I admit, my comments were a bit trollish, but only because I feel passionately about how bad 300 was. Let me make it up to you with some boobs.

MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 11:52 AM
Also, I don't believe Spartans wore those shitty outfits, they barely protect you in fight.

And it's Thermopylae, not Hot Gates. You don't have to translate everything in english.
ComicsBornAndBred - 2/25/2014, 11:55 AM
Snyder gonna ruin B vs. S. It's just too much for him. Affleck should direct it and Justice League. He's a terrific director with an Oscar!
Starscream22 - 2/25/2014, 12:00 PM
Funny skit but I'd still watch this sequel before I would Singer's crap!
JoeMomma29 - 2/25/2014, 12:01 PM
@ Gfart

Sorry my comment was meant foe SageTroll not you.
GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 12:04 PM
@Joe: No problem! Truth is...I was being a little trollish. I try to fight it...but sometimes the dark side takes over. :)
Tdi7457 - 2/25/2014, 12:05 PM
Goddamn, we get it Screen Junkies, you don't want Batman/Superman. You're now sounding like a but hurt fanboy.
Thecondor14 - 2/25/2014, 12:06 PM

Ok thanks, I've been trying to stay away from all the featurettes and the like so that I don't spoil the whole movie for my self. Also I believe they made the spartan uniforms like that because they wanted it to seem more like the great tales and artistic depictions of warriors from that time. Many of the paintings of such men showed them without any armor or even clothes on.
dannramm113 - 2/25/2014, 12:06 PM
You gotta watch the screen junkies show as well to see the bias
JoeMomma29 - 2/25/2014, 12:07 PM
@ Gfart

We go to the dark side the difference is some people just chose to stay there.
dannramm113 - 2/25/2014, 12:07 PM
Snyder/Cavil/Afleck. FTW!
GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 12:08 PM
@Joe: Very true.
GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 12:08 PM
@Dann: Ah. Never seen it.
Thecondor14 - 2/25/2014, 12:08 PM
I believe Hot springs is also one translation of Thermopylae.
Thecondor14 - 2/25/2014, 12:09 PM
*Hot Gates
GodzillaKart - 2/25/2014, 12:17 PM
@Gus: Don't push my buttons, brother!

MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 12:20 PM
@Thecondor Maybe, but I still think Xerxes looked awful. That's just my opinion though and sometimes I judge Hollywood movies about greek history/mythology too much. Hot Gates is Thermopylae translated but I think Thermopylae sounds better, more greek... I'm just very proud of my country and my ancestors, that's all :P
JoeMomma29 - 2/25/2014, 12:27 PM
300 was a great movie, people on this site sometimes over think movies in general. This type of movie you need to go into it with the notion that is not going to be a Oscar worthy movie but a good popcorn flick.
Thecondor14 - 2/25/2014, 12:39 PM

There's nothing wrong with that. Also Xerxes was pretty awful, watching this reminds me of the south park episode haha.
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 12:41 PM
Ὦ ξεῖν', ἀγγέλλειν Λακεδαιμονίοις ὅτι τῇδε
κείμεθα, τοῖς κείνων ῥήμασι πειθόμενοι.

Go tell the Spartans, passerby:
That here, by Spartan law, we lie.
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 12:44 PM
Μολὼν λαβέ

Come and get them (as in answer to Xerxes' demand that the Greeks give up their weapons)

My ancestors were awesome!! I wish we were half as cool as they were...
MsDarkPhoenix - 2/25/2014, 12:46 PM
@Thecondor Lol he looked really bad :P
UltimateHunt - 2/25/2014, 12:50 PM
"Gets to direct a really good movie and now he is doing SuperMan vs Batman"
Just priceless...
Bravo.. Bravo... ScreenJunkies you guys are the best..
