'300' Movie Stills

Gerard Butler stars as King Leonidas in the upcoming epic film 300, which tells the story of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fight to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army.

300 is based on the creator of Sin City Frank Miller‘s graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. The film opens in theaters nationwide (and on IMAX) on Friday, March 9. Check out more 300 movie stills here!

Gerard Butler, 37, played The Phantom in 2004′s The Phantom of the Opera co-starring Emmy Rossum. He also played British marine turned mercenary Terry Sheridan in 2003′s Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life co-starring Angelina Jolie.

Gerard is also featured in the March 2007 issue of Men’s Health looking like quite the sex symobl. Check it out here, here, and here. He recently shared the physical preparation he had to go endure for this film:

“So, through that pain it’s been amazing, but it’s been long hours. I’m training every second I get, whether with the stunt guys or especially with Mark [owner of Gym Jones, the team that trained with the cast]. I was doing that for two and a half months before the movie started, six days a week. At one point I was over doing it. I had two trainers – I was training in two different gyms and I was training with stunt guys everyday, so some days I was doing six hours a day. After a few months your body really can’t take that anymore, so come Christmas time I was considering getting a zimmer frame (walker) when I went back to Scotland, or getting a wheel chair to get some rest. I have a lot of aches and pains and I’m looking forward to the rest.”

  • green lettuce

  • http://www.justjared.com/ Just Jared

    Hahaha. Well, I’ll be. You learn something new everyday!!! Thanks, green lettuce. You are the best.

  • green lettuce

    ;-) Hey you’re welcome!!Keep on the good work!!! Thanks again for the ’3OO’ stills! I hope you’ll post a bit more about Gerry in the future! :)

  • Alicia

    thanks Jared!!! I have been stalking this movie ever since the teaser trailer was leaked from comicon last year, CAN. NOT. WAIT.

    Its going to be amazing!!! :D

  • Yolanda

    Finally talking about Gerry Butler. Now this is a MAN!! He is the most gorgeous and sexy actor today. He’s got the face, 6′ 2″ body and he can act. Can’t wait for 300!!!

  • goldend

    I can´t wait to watch this movie, Gerard Butler is an amazing actor and Lena Headey (Queen Gorgo) is the shit! she is absolutely awesome let´s hope this movie and the upcoming “the Sarah Connor Chronicles” bring her the attention she so much deserves.

  • io

    This is the most anticipated movie of the year for me!!! LOOOOOOOVEEE the trailers. The cinematography (and actors) are superb!

  • Shauna

    Gerard looks amazing, he almost looks CG! His voice sounds like it has been altered in some way, but it just might be his natural growling-lol. I guess I was used to his lovely singing voice in POTO!

    I have not seen Lena Headey in any movies yet, she has a very classicly noble face and demeanor for this movie. I googled her and checked out some other photos of her and she is lovely but, (sighs) she is all ‘Jolied’ out with multiple tats all over her arms and back. A private tattoo can be intriguing. A road atlas is just not attractive on a women imho.

  • Amanda

    I’m so happy that people are finally taking notice of Gerard Butler!! I’ve been a huge fan since Phantom and had the pleasure of meeting him in St. Louis; he has got to be one of the most genuine and humble actors out there–such a great guy! He is extremely talented and really has a passion for what he does, so I really hope that “300″ can jump start his career and get him into more good work.

  • AddictedtoBAMZs

    I discovered Gerard Butler in the fantastic, wonderful movie “Dear Frankie”. He just could not have been more gorgeous. I was interested enough to do some research and find out a little about him, and was intriqued to learn he had worked with Angelina in Lara Croft. Does anyone know if he is married? Did he show any interest in Angie, maybe, while they were filming? That combo definitely could have worked!

  • angelah

    This is going to be interesting to watch. I cant wait!

  • poolstool

    This movie looks PECKtacular! I can’t wait to masturbate to it on DVD!

  • Bijou

    Love, love Gerard Butler, ever since Dracula 2000. He is a sexy beast I agree #1

  • FreeHolly

    I hope this movie does well or at least gives GB the exposure he deserves. Not only gorgeous, but a good actor as well!

  • Bootylicious88

    Can’t wait till this movie comes out. Hopefully it’s better than that other graphic novel turned movie.

  • DroolingforGerard

    Oh my #16 I thought I was bad!

  • Leaving4Scotland

    Hopefully this will be Gerard’s Gladiator. He has been under the radar for so many years! He deserves 2 get some notariety…well at least for that body.

    Cannot wait for the movie, hope it isn’t a disappointment. But probably won’t be 4 me with all that eye candy.

  • Nola

    Ha! Attila returns! What a great choice to pick Gerard for this role! He was perfect in Attila the Hun (I know I went back in day) and I’m sure he will be brutally perfect in this as well.

    And his body-OH MY LAMB!

  • MightyMight

    Gosh Gerard makes the director look like a midget!

  • NikkiG

    March 9 is too far away!

  • lady garden

    Hey BAMZ-he has a girlfriend though i forget the name-he is too gorg even for the Jolie though i hear you-she obviously let him slip through the net-he was fab in phantom and he makes my garden grow
    hope that helps!

  • green lettuce

    #14 #25 Yep (unfortunately lol) he’ has been dating a model for a few years, Bianca Christians. I think they are still together but not sure though.
    Gerard I love you… *shivers* *drool* LMAO

  • the real tita

    Next to BP, Gerard is my guy for Angie because I thought that they too had a good chemistry. I never saw BP’s tongue in MAMS but I did see Gerard’s in TR2. They looked so well together in the movie (much better than Angie with Daniel Craig, the new James Bond who was in the first Lara Croft). That’s where I first saw him. Ever since then, I’ve seen a lot of his movies. In the Phantom, I was surprised to learn that he did do the singing part. JJ’s is really great. This was where I saw the interview and learned that.

    Not only is the guy pure macho but so hot looking to boot. He could have made a really good James Bond too. I can’t wait for the 300. He looks so good even when scruffy.

  • m.a.i.i.

    Gaddamnnn… So.. is this about 300 sixpacks??!! YEAHH i wanna watch this one for sure!!

    BAMZ, Gerry is single and has been since 2003,after breaking up with his girlfriend of two years, he has went on lots of casual dates, and to many events with friends, but is not dating anyone in particular right now. he has been seen with Bianca Christians at several events, but they are not more then friends,he has said she is just a girlfriend, as in a friend that is a girl. he was seen at the 300 after party in pictures with Rosario Dawson, she was in the movie also and just posed with him. she is dating a latino actor from what I have heard, after breaking it off with her latest boyfriend. Gerry was seen April 2nd, in Miami with Naomi Campbell , they got into the same SUV, and then on April 8th he was caught in pictures in LA by a Macy’s store at a news stand with a blond woman, I know his assistant, Tonya, has blond hair, but it wasn’t Tonya, I hope this helps you.

  • Tz

    By the way, when filming, Tomb Raider, Angie was married to either Johnny Miller, (he was in Dracula 2000, by the way) or Billy Bob Thornton, I’m not sure which one, but Gerry said he enjoyed doing the kissing scenes with her a lot., and meeting Maddox, oh I guess that means she was with Billy, hahaha.

  • LoneWolf

    OK, Gerry was at the Elton John’s ball for AIDS, June 28 and guess what so was Rosario Dawson, in the pics she looks the same way like she did in those taken in March with him, cant even describe it, but others did and comments were: “looked like she made a beeline for him”, “she dont look interested, just posing”, “not a good pair”…..me, no comment about Rosario, as for Gerry, he is nice looking.

  • LoneWolf

    Ok, TZ, I am confused, you said Gerry has been single, yet according to a post from a Website, the girl said it was his birthday, November, 2006, in New York, they were promoting 300, and they were talking to Gerry, who seemed a little nervous at the time, and then he commented his girlfriend was standing over there (and pointed), Bianca, she said looked jealous. Also, the girl said this was the first time she had heard Gerry admit he had a girlfriend, he is usually private.Then, in March, I read comments of an interview he was in saying he had just gotten out of a long relationship…..I am confused, I did see pics of him and Bianca in March, June, August of 2006, then January 2007, am I reading right?

  • Tz

    Lonewolf, I have since found out that he was dating Biance for a while, but actually broke it off with her, I heard it was because she was using him to get more movie connections, they have broke it off and from what I have heard, she tried to get in to a premiere of his and he told his people to get her to leave. she is now dating someone else, Tony somebody, and I for one am glad because I had guessed that was what was happening all along, because she was not well known as a model until she was dating him. Gerry has only a bright future ahead of him and doesn’t need people using him to get ahead, he is much too good for someone like that, and to much of a caring person, to have it happen to him

  • shelan canada
