300 Pounds

Writers/Producers: Eric Valdes & David Superville; Director: Eric Valdes.

A trailer for a brilliant piece of action cinema, a feast for both the eyes and stomach, 300 Pounds is loosely based on a Zack Snyder film that was loosely based on a Frank Miller graphic novel that was even more loosely based on a history book written by Herodotus a couple thousand years ago. The point is, somebody down the line screwed up, and this film intends to set the historical record straight. Never before has this much man flesh graced the screen.

In the words of Spartan King Leonidas: ‘When this battle is over, the world will know the power of being heavy!’
