Film adaptation of the 1998 comic book series of the same name fictionalizes events surrounding the Battle of Thermopylae.

"Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hardy, for tonight, we dine in HELL!" The legendary Battle of Thermopylae, a conflict during the Persian Wars of 499-449 BC that saw an alliance of Greek city-states led by Sparta square off against the hegemonic Persians in a showdown to determine the fate of Boeotia, receives a screen treatment in this pulp epic from the mind behind Sin City, following King Leonidas and his bloodthirsty band of warriors as they set out against long odds to control their own destiny.
