    Is coming a little later this month to theaters. I'm a history buff, and I'm really looking forward to this movie. Especially since Alexander was, by today's labels, a bisexual. Apparently this is a full frontal nude shot of him [Colin Farrell] which I'm looking forward to. :D

    Enough with the boobies in movies!

    I’m bit of a history buff too but I cannot stand Alexander the Great and do not find him the hero a lot of stories make out.

    Even his solution to the Gordian Knot was a cheat. Although I do not underestimate his conquest.

    Is anyone looking forward to the movie?

    I don't think of Alexander the Great as a hero, although he certainly was a terrific military commander.

    Looks like another Troyesque flop to me.

    it just looks poor - Colin Farrell has been "allowed" to keep his irish accent - he sounds like one of the commitments! just didn't sit well, seems a bit off. i'm going to see it, unless it gets really panned - but my expectations are a lot lower now.

    If you want the skinny on Alexander The Great, then just watch Michael Woods documentary. It's compelling, informative and does not include the ubiquitous Mr Farrell.

    I remember the one Brian Walden did on him on Heroes and Villains, Alexander did not come out a hero.
    But I had made my mind up long before that.
