300 (Limited Collector's Edition)
Author: Lynn Varley
Release Date: 25-11-2008
Details: The 300 Limited Collector's Edition combines the widescreen two-disc special edition with a new third disc, which has a digital copy of the film (download code expires 11/18/09) and a 30-minute documentary "To the Hot Gates: A Legend Retold." The documentary has interviews with director Zack Snyder and his crew plus contributions from creator Frank Miller and actors Gerard Butler and Lena Headey and discusses the adaptation of the graphic novel to film, the creatures and special effects, the actors' training regimen, and Queen Gorgo. The documentary is in widescreen but not enhanced for widescreen TVs (ironically, neither is the Blu-ray ad), which follows the pattern of most of the original DVDs' bonus features (showing its vintage, disc 2 begins with a joint promotion for Blu-ray and HD DVD). If you already have the two-disc DVD, the Blu-ray, or the HD DVD, the non-DVD elements of this set might be the bigger draw: an attractive hardcover book that houses the discs and shows off art from the film as well as from the graphic novel (often comparing the two presentations side by side), six promotional postcards, and a lucite display with a lenticular image of Butler.
