Fantasy Collection: Beowulf & Grendel/Merlin Book Of Beasts/Robin Hood: 3dvd Set £7.99 at HMV
Beowulf & Grendel tells the bloody tale of the warrior Beowulf's battle with Grendel, a great and murderous troll. In this thoroughly updated version of the seminal Anglo Saxon poem, the battle-scarred Norse hero Beowulf (Gerard Butler - King Leonidas in 300) leads a troop of warriors across the sea to help an old friend, King Hrothgar (Stellan Skarsgard - Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest), whose kingdom is being ravaged by the marauding troll, Grendel (Ingvar Sigurdsson). However, Beowulf's attempts to fight the troll are thwarted when Grendel refuses to engage him in battle. When Beowulf meets Selma (Sarah Polley), a mysterious and sensual witch, his understanding of revenge is further complicated. Beowulf & Grendel powerfully entwines themes of vengeance, loyalty and mercy, stripping away the mask of the hero myth, leaving a raw and tangled tale that rings true today. Merlin And The Book Of Beasts, Welcome to the dark side of Camelot: King Arthur is gone, the Round Table is in ruins and a rogue sorcerer has unleashed a reign of monstrous terror upon the land. For the court's last remaining knights, their only hope lies in the powers of the now-bitter and broken wizard Merlin (James Callis of Battlestar Galactica). But can a once-great man of magic defeat a legion of creatures that includes Dragon Soldiers, Death Hawks and Gorgons, and still reclaim the legendary castle of lore? Laura Harris of Dead Like Me and 24 co-stars in this epic adventure that puts a savage new edge on the saga of Excalibur, Mordred and the ultimate battle between Merlin And The Book Of Beasts. Robin Hood: Beyond Sherwood Forest 12 Century England: It is a deadly time of dark tyranny, black magic and the outlaw archer known as Robin Hood (Robin Dunne of Sanctuary). But when the Sheriff of Nottingham (Julian Sands of 24 and Warlock) unleashes a winged monster upon the town and woods to massacre Robin's men and capture Maid Marian (Erica Durance of Smallville), hearts run cold with fear and streets red with blood. Before he can rob from the rich or give to the poor, can The Prince Of Thieves survive the demonic onslaught of a winged beast from another world? Katharine Isabelle (Gingersnaps) co-stars in this chilling new take on the infamous hero from director Peter DeLuise, filled with valour, vengeance and nightmare creatures that take you behind the legend and Beyond Sherwood Forest.
