Iranian MPs denounce Hollywood film 300


TEHRAN, March 13 (Mehr News Agency) - Iranian members of parliament on Monday deprecated the production and screening of the Hollywood film 300. In a letter to Foreign Ministry and the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, the MPs stressed the necessity for measures and negotiations to prevent the screening of the anti-Iranian movie in the world especially in Malaysia.

Directed by Zack Snyder and based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, '300' is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army.

The film has entered North America's theaters since last Friday, selling over $70 million and irritating Iranians throughout the world.
