So the sequel to the highly successful Zack Snyder film 300 officially opens for business in the UK today, last night Stateside it managed to rake in an impressive $3.3m of box office receipts. Is spending close to two hours sitting on your arse watching semi-nude beef cakes sweat in slow motion your idea of fun?
Well here’s what Twitter has been saying about 300: Rise Of An Empire:
