Meet the Spartans (US BD) in June

Fox Home Entertainment have announced the US Region A Blu-ray Disc release of Meet the Spartans on 3rd June 2008 priced at $39.98 SRP. The latest spoof comedy from the writing and directing team behind Date Movie and Epic Movie primarily targets 300 as it follows the journey of Leonidas, the King of Sparta. When his kingdom is challenged by the powerful Xerxes, Leonidas must recruit some of his strongest soldiers; which unfortunately leaves him with 13 (not 300) of the not-so-finest. Armed with nothing but leather underwear and a flowing red cape, Leonidas leads his ragtag army to defend their homeland, delivering send-ups of motion picture heavyweights including Ghost Rider, Transformers, Spider-Man 3 and Casino Royale, as well as tackling such pop culture television staples as “American Idol,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “Ugly Betty” and “Deal or No Deal.”

Arriving day-and-date, the Meet the Spartans BD includes the unrated feature in widescreen format, with all the standard-def “Pit of Death” DVD special features included, plus several BD-exclusive features including an on-screen trivia track and two interactive games – “Celebrity Kickoff” and “Super Pit of Death Ultimate Tactical Battle Challenge.” The disc will be presented on a 25GB single-layer disc authored in BD-J with AVC (MPEG 4) compression with English 5.1 DTS HD Lossless Master Audio and Spanish / French Dolby Surround.

DVD extras include:

  • Audio commentary by the cast and crew
  • Know Your Spartans Pop Culture set-top trivia game
  • Gag Reel
  • Meet The Spartans: The Music featurette
  • Prepare For Thrusting featurette
  • Tour The Set With Ike Barinholtz
