Gerard Butler, 300

(300: Warner Bros. Ent.)

If you think ”the Hot Gates” is the Microsoft honcho’s MySpace handle, check your history: It’s Thermopylae, where 300 Spartan soldiers took on the massive Persian army in 480 b.c. Adapted by Zack Snyder from Frank Miller’s gruesome graphic novel, the CG-heavy, hard-R flick will send viscera flying in cool new ways. (March 9)
