Misprouncing 'Leonidas'[edit]

We know Paul Cartledge informed the producers of this movie that Leonidas is properly pronounced 'LeonEEEdas'. For some reason, they insisted on saying, 'LeonEYEdas'. Even the History Channel has picked up this travesty. What a shame they'd go to such tremendous lengths to research an historical movie, but to totally and unjustifiably muff the pronunciation of its protagonist's name, is beyond comprehension and to their great humiliation. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.92.14.172 (talk) 17:19, 15 October 2011 (UTC)

"tremendous lengths to research"...? LOL! Anyway, Americans like to go with what sounds better. (I bet you loved it when they referred to the Picts as "Woads" in the 2004 film King Arthur). It's Hollywood, get over it. - theWOLFchild 03:49, 18 January 2015 (UTC)

Release year[edit]

The article says 2006 due to the BNAT screening. However, the movie wasn't all finished at the time, so it wasn't a release version, the same the audience saw in theaters. There is one previous reference to this point in the archives which no bothered to reply to or address.

The AFI[1] lists 2007 as the release date, so do Rotten Tomatoes[2] and Metacritic[3]. 2006 should be changed to 2007 in the header. —Hexafluoride Ping me if you need help, or post on my talk 08:56, 23 July 2016 (UTC)
