SPARTACUS: Gods of the Arena – Blu-ray Featurettes “Battle Royale” & “Weapons”

I just got this yesterday from my favorite PR person.  So you know it’s obviously a MUST-SHARE!  Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, the exciting STARZ Original series, is ready for battle when Anchor Bay Entertainment releases the prequel to the acclaimed Spartacus: Blood and Sand on Blu-ray and DVD September 13, 2011.  The two-disc collection contains a muscular amount of bonus features including never-before-seen featurettes, bloopers and behind-the-scenes footage (including a set tour with star Lucy Lawless).  The Blu-ray is even mightier with extended episodes, audio commentary on all six episodes and a mind-blowing battle sequence in 3D – a first for a TV on Blu-Ray release!

Executive produced by Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight, this exhilarating season follows Gannicus, the charismatic gladiator aspiring to become Champion of Capua and of the House of Batiatus. With political ambitions and poised to overthrow his father and take control of the House, a young Batiatus will freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. With his loyal and calculating wife Lucretia by his side, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses.

Joining returning stars, John Hannah as Batiatus, Peter Mensah as Oenomaus and Lucy Lawless as Lucretia, are new cast members Dustin Clare as Gannicus, Jaime Murray as Gaia and Marisa Ramirez as Melitta.

With content too hot for cable TV, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deluxe packaging and an amazing 3D battle scene from the final episode, SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA is sure to have fans of the show cheering, while capturing the attention of all those uninitiated into the world of Spartacus – thumbs up, indeed!
