I've been looking forward to the film adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel 300 for a long time. I've probably watched the trailer for 300 about 300 times, so when Warner Brothers asked if we'd be interested in hosting an exclusive, behind-the-scenes video journal from the movie, I didn't have to give it much thought.

The film combines live action with virtual backgrounds—similar to Miller's Sin City, although the screens were green for Sin City and blue for 300. The epic graphic novel (and its movie-magic adaptation) tells the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, in which King Leonidas (played by a very ripped Gerard Butler) leads 300 Spartans in a fight to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army.

Gerard Butler hosts this behind-the-scenes video. He calls the movie a "hyper-real, beautiful, emotional world," and says that "the intensity is almost unbearable."

"It's not a documentary," says Gerard, waxing poetic. "It's a kick ass story filled with passion, politics, brutality."

A page of other 300 video journals can be found here.
