The film – about the Battle of Thermopylae – is out on blu-ray on 5 October and om digital on 6 October.
The disc set will contain an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc with the feature film in 4K with HDR, and a Blu-ray disc of 300. The digital version will be available in 4K Ultra HD.
Based on the stylized graphic novel from Frank Miller, 300 is an epic action-adventure about the 300 Spartan warriors led by the heroic King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) who challenged Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army at the ancient Battle of Thermopylae. Its ferocious, lushly intense visual style blends live-action and CGI animation.
(Interesting fact of the day: Gerard Butler was 36 when 300 was released, but the real King Leonidas was SIXTY when he died during the battle.)
Ultra HD showcases 4K resolution with High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a wider colour spectrum, offering consumers brighter, deeper, more lifelike colours.
300 Ultra HD disc contains the following special features:
- Commentary with director/co-writer Zack Snyder, co-writer Kurt Johnstad and director of photography Larry Fong
The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc will also feature a Dolby Atmos® soundtrack remixed specifically for the home theatre environment to place and move audio anywhere in the room, including overhead. (To experience Dolby Atmos at home, a Dolby Atmos enabled AV receiver and additional speakers are required, or a Dolby Atmos enabled sound bar. Dolby Atmos soundtracks are also fully backward compatible with traditional audio configurations and legacy home entertainment equipment.)
