Release Date : 09/13/2011
Anchor Bay Entertainment announced today that it will release two of the Starz Original series, “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” and “Camelot – The Complete First Season” on Blu-ray™ and DVD in the U.S. and Canada on September 13, 2011. Each has become a fan favorite with their unique mix of visceral action, thrilling adventure and revealing romance. Both sets will roll out with extensive bonus features yet to be announced.
“We’re pleased to be bringing both of these series to Blu-ray™ and DVD,” said Kevin J. Carney, Executive Director of Marketing for Anchor Bay Entertainment. “Releasing both on the same date will give fans a chance to check each series out, catch up on those they’ve missed and prepare for future episodes.”
“Spartacus: Gods of the Arena” is the prequel to the widely popular Starz Original series “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.” Executive produced by Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Joshua Donen and Steven S. DeKnight, the 6 exhilarating episodes explore the House of Batiatus as it rises — basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus, whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for wine and women. These are the times a young Batiatus has been waiting for. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, he’ll freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand. And he’ll have his loyal and calculating wife, Lucretia, by his side for every underhanded scheme, drawing on the brazen talents of her seductive friend Gaia when it counts. Together, they will stop at nothing to deceive the masses, seize power and bleed Capua dry.
Joining returning stars, John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) as Batiatus, Lucy Lawless (“Xena: Warrior Princess”) as Lucretia and Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk) as Oenomaus, are talented new cast members Dustin Clare (“Underbelly”) as Gannicus, Jaime Murray (“Hu$tle”) as Gaia and Marisa Ramirez (“General Hospital”) as Melitta.
