300 - Trailer
Summary: Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, this 2007 movie tells the story of Spartans fighting a massive Persian army.
Music in the commercial
The NIN song is enhanced only slightly in this movie trailer. For example, the sound that seems like a distant thunderclap or loud drum in the beginning does not appear in the original song, but the eerie piano music does.
The trailer opens with the ominous sound of sparse piano, and shows a dramatic slow-motion shot of soldiers being forced off a cliff by Spartans.
The Spartans are the "300" referred to in the title, and they're up against an enormous Persian army that's invading their homeland.
The movie is a close adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel, which is historical fantasy loosely based on the Battle of Thermopylae during the Greco-Persian wars.
"Before this battle is over, the world will know that few stood against many."
