It’s 300 week here at SBM! In a very serious matter, ICv2checks in on Dark Horse’s stock levels. You’ll recall that copies of both HELLBOY and SIN CITY trades were in short supply when those respective movies opener. Happily, the situation with 300 is much healthier:
We checked in with Dark Horse on the in stock status of its 300 titles for the movie premiere weekend, and the news is good. Some 14,000 copies out of a recent shipment of 35,000 copies of the 300 graphic novel are still available, another 15,000 copies have just arrived, and a second 15,000 copy shipment is en route.
THEN, FirstShowing’s Alex Billington examines Why Women Should Go See 300, and the answer is oh, so simple.
This entire list could just be “Gerard Butler” and thousands of women would still go. I really don’t know what it is, but this guy makes girls fall head over heels. Endless women have invaded Comic-Con (all of them representing GerardButler.net) multiple times just to stare and ask ridiculous questions. As Angelina Jolie is to guys, he is to girls – the very top of the line. Just the presence of him, either in a movie or real life (if that dream comes true for a few women) is exciting, I suppose. And heck, for all you ladies who love a hot hunk (did I just say that?) like Gerry, then you definitely will want to go see 300!
