You’ve seen the teasers, now check out the full-length trailer for Starz’s “Spartacus: Vengeance” in its full bloody glory. Yup, there’s plenty of blood here, and more than a little bit of sex. It appears the boys and girls behind the show hasn’t forgotten what made “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” so popular with the kids. If anything, they’ve just widened the canvas a whole lot more.
On the heels of the bloody escape from the House of Batiatus that concluded “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”, the gladiator rebellion continues and begins to strike fear into the heart of the Roman Republic in “Spartacus: Vengeance”. 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 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” stars Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, Dustin Clare, and Lucy Lawless, and rebels January 2012.
