The Spartans

Frank Miller’s vision of the Spartan stand at the Battle of Thermopylae against the Persian empire is finally being made into a movie.

Remember their epitaph:

Traveler, take this word to the men of Lakedaimon: We who lie buried here did what they told us to do.

The movie looks incredible, though pretty obviously heavily stylized.
