Brought to you by Anchor Bay Entertainment comes the thrilling prequel to Blood and Sand, SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA – THE COMPLETE PREQUEL SERIES released on Blu-ray and DVD on 3 October 2011.
The jaw-dropping Gladiatorial epic SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA features more lust, blood and sweat than ever before. Packed with sexual tension and bloody battles sequences, this series features some of the biggest and most brutal spectacles the show has ever produced.
The House of Batiatus is on the rise, basking in the glow of its infamous champion Gannicus whose skill with a sword is matched only by his thirst for fine women and drink. Poised to overthrow his father and take control, Batiatus will freely betray anyone to ensure his gladiators are in the highest demand.
SPARTACUS: GODS OF THE ARENA is at its unflinching best with 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. New cast members include Dustin Clare (Underbelly) as Gannicus, Jaime Murray (Hustle, Dexter) as Gaia and Marisa Ramirez (General Hospital) as Melitta.
This gripping depiction of one of history’s most brutal eras boasts cutting-edge digital technology, CGI graphics and special effects that take you right into the battle with a captivating blend of history, action and drama to arouse the senses.
