    The 300 Spartans:
    For the first time on Blu-ray comes The 300 Spartans, the iconic action classic about the epic 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae! Richard Egan stars as Spartan King Leonidas, who commands a small band of fearless Greek warriors in their defense of the civilized world’s last bastion of freedom. Impossibly out-numbered by the marauding forces of the totalitarian Persian Empire, these brave heroes will take no prisoners and never surrender—even unto death!

    Excellent news, now if we could only get Go: Tell the Spartans, all would be good in this world.

    Regarding the case artwork, I can see them going "Hmmmm.... How can we make this look like Snyder's 300?" Ha ha.

    This is still a 1962 production. :)

    300: Rise of an Empire hits theatrically in August, so clearly they want the free cross promotion.

    RISE OF AN EMPIRE has been delayed until March of 2014.

    Yep, which means we shouldn't be surprised if this release also gets delayed.

    The only reason I could see this even getting a BD release would be because of Rise of an Empire, so I would assume a delay for now.

    A poster on Blu.ray.com is claiming that THE 300 SPARTANS has indeed been delayed until March of 2014. That's all I've seen, so far.

    There is further evidence. Amazon.ca has changed the release date to March 2014, so Amazon (US) will probably follow suit. I saw this delay coming from a mile away, since the movie is only marketable due to the 300 sequel getting released. Otherwise, I don't think we'd ever see this on BD.

    It is REALLY unfortunate that the fans of this film have to be disappointed. If you pick a release date, stick to it! Or, just screw the REAL audience in exchange for the handful of orders you may get from the 20-something comic book gang. Not at all nice!

    I guess we'll have to hold our breaths until next March.
