300 Spartans (release date March 9, 2007)

Ok, the real title is "300" but you knew I was going to put the "Spartans" part in the title of my post.

Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, "300" concerns the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta Leonidas led his army against the advancing Persians.

The battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world's first democracy.

Warner Bros. have managed to find all the sites with the trailer and have ordered those sites to stop posting it.
They haven't stopped YouTube yet.

Read about the Battle of Thermopylae.
