Get ready to enter the blood soaked arena with the highly anticipated DVD and Blu-ray release of the global smash hit Spartacus: Blood And Sand - The Complete First Series on 16th May 2011 from Anchor Bay Home Entertainment.

Relive the deadly brutality of the gladiator games as this epic tale takes you on a non-stop, jaw-dropping journey. Causing much controversy, the show is packed with erotically charged scenes with full frontal nudity and gut challengingly bloody battle sequences with spectacular heart pounding and awe-inspiring mix of live action and cutting edge graphics. The story of history's greatest gladiator is captured on DVD and Blu-ray for the very first time as a specially packaged embossed box set boasting hours of exclusive bonus content that makes this worth fighting for.

The massive hit set a US ratings benchmark, achieving the highest figures for a first series on pay television ever. UK fans got a taste of the action when Spartacus: Blood And Sand aired on Bravo last May and can watch the subsequent prequel Spartacus: Gods Of The Arena on its new home Sky 1 from March, followed by Spartacus: Blood And Sand in May. Having won a second season sequel order before the premiere episode even aired, this is the ultimate warrior franchise you don't want to miss.

UK-born Andy Whitfield (McLeod's Daughter) plays Spartacus, a man betrayed by the Roman Republic and sentenced to die in the gladiator arena. The star-studded cast includes John Hannah (The Mummy, Four Weddings and A Funeral) as Batiatus, Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess) as Lucretia and Peter Mensah (300) as Doctore a trainer of the gladiators.

The controversial Spartacus: Blood And Sand is the re-imagined story of Spartacus, a slave of the Roman Republic who led a slave revolt that grew to more than 120,000 fighters. Torn from his homeland and the woman he loves, Spartacus (Whitfield), a Thracian warrior is captured by Romans and enslaved into a gladiator training school owned by Batiatus (Hannah) and his wife Lucretia (Lawless).

Forced to fight daily for his life under the brutal whip of trainer Doctore (Mensah) and condemned to a life in the brutal world of the arena where blood and death are primetime entertainment, he must become more than a man and more than a gladiator to survive. He must become a legend.

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, titillation and drama. Let the journey begin on 16th May 2011.
