Preview by Jack Foley
JOIN the rebellion as the thrilling and brutal follow-up to Blood and Sand, Spartacus: Vengeance – The Complete Second Season is released on Blu-ray and DVD on October 1, 2012 by Anchor Bay Entertainment.
With universal appeal to fans of historic dramas, gut-wrenching and action-packed fighting and erotic scenes that would make 50 Shades of Grey readers blush, the vicious and deadly gladiatorial epic Spartacus returns with more lust, blood and sweat than ever before in Vengeance.
Following the escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded Blood and Sand, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic.
Gaius Claudius Glaber and his Roman troops are sent to Capua to crush the growing band of freed slaves that Spartacus leads before it can inflict further damage.
Spartacus is presented with the choice of satisfying his personal need for vengeance against the man that condemned his wife to slavery and eventual death, or making the larger sacrifices necessary to keep his budding army from breaking apart.
Containing all of the blood-soaked action, exotic sexuality, and villainy and heroism that has come to distinguish the series, the tale of Spartacus resumes in epic fashion.
Spartacus: Vengeance introduces Liam McIntyre, who capably fills the sandals of the late Andy Whitfield as Spartacus.
He stars alongside Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) as Lucretia, Peter Mensah (300, The Incredible Hulk) as Oenomaus, Manu Bennett (30 Days of Night) as Crixus, Craig Parker (Lord of the Rings, Underworld) as Glaber, Tom Hobbs (King Kong) as Seppius and Dustin Clare (Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, Satisfaction) as Gannicus.
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.
