From maverick science-fantasy movie director and digital visual effects pioneer Brett Leonard (Feed; Virtuosity; The Lawnmower Man) comes a new beginning for the ever-popular Highlander phenomenon - Highlander: The Source, released on DVD by Momentum Pictures on 7th January 2008. Packed from start to finish with the kind of trademark eye-popping, cutting edge visuals for which Leonard is best known, this is unquestionably Highlander for the "Hi-Def Generation".
Chronicling the origins of the Immortals, Highlander: The Source stars Adrian Paul (Highlander: Endgame), Thekla Reuten (Twin Sisters; Everybody's Famous), Peter Wingfield (Holby City; Highlander: Endgame), Jim Byrnes (Highlander: Endgame) and Cristian Solimeno (Footballers' Wives) in an epic adventure that sees Highlander Duncan MacLeod (Paul) embarking on a quest to locate the Holy Grail of their world, the eponymous Source. Regarded as a myth by most immortals, The Source may hold the answers to the unexplained origin of the immortals and the key to great power.
As the world falls into chaos and destruction, Duncan MacLeod, the Highlander, aimlessly roams a crumbling city in the remote reaches of Eastern Europe, haunted by memories of happier times and a lost love, his wife Anna. Unexpectedly sought out by a band of Immortals, including his old friend Methos and the mortal Watcher Joe Dawson, McLeod finds himself leading them in search of The Source. But unbeknown to them, their prize is protected by an ancient warrior, The Guardian, a being destined to hunt down and destroy any who seek its secrets.
Highlander: The Source sees director Brett Leonard bringing his own unique visual style to the timeless, mythical fantasy world of the Immortals, regenerating a franchise that to date encompasses five live-action movies, a feature-length anime film, an animated TV series and two live-action TV series.
