You can bring home King Leonidas and his battle against the Spartans in a whole new edition this November. 300 will be released in a Limited Collectors Edition on November 18. This three-disc release will feature a new disc of content, including a new documentary on making the film and a Digital Copy of the film along with other collectable items such as 52-page hardcover art book with a personal message from Snyder, a lucite display with motion film image and six collectible photo cards. We don't have any cover art as of yet, but this new set will be priced at $49.92 SRP. The film stars Gerard Butler, Lena Headey and Rodrigo Santoro.

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 faced off against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army. In spite of insurmountable odds, they fought to the death to defend their honor and freedom, inspiring all of Greece to unite against the enemy.
