Starz is releasing every season of its original series “Spartacus” in the ultimate box set. The series will be released on a huge, 13-disc Blu-ray plus Digital HD with Ultraviolet and DVD Sept. 16!
The show, from executive producers Rob Tapert, Sam Raimi, Josh Donen and Steven S. DeKnight, has brought viewers the rule-breaking, bloody action to television and, with the box set, you’ll be able to relive ever uncut and uncensored fight in the series. “Spartacus: The Complete Series” will contain one whole disc full of bonus features, including “‘Spartacus’ Fan Favorites With Liam McIntyre,” “Scoring A Hit: Composer Joseph LoDuca,” “An Eye Full: Roger Murray,” “‘SPARTACUS’: Paul Grinder” and “The Last Word: John Hannah.” The Blu-ray edition will have three new audio commentaries for the first season that are exclusive to the collection and, if you buy the limited edition Blu-ray plus Digital HD with Ultraviolet set, you’ll also receive a “Spartacus” collector’s figurine.
The Blu-ray trailer is below, but if you want an even better look at the set, take a look at this clip from one of the bonus features, “2nd Unit: Trail of Blood.” In this clip, 2nd Unit Director Paul Grinder discusses how the bloody scenes were created with the use of practical effects versus CGI.
