THIS ... IS ... (an amazing trailer for Starz' new series) ... SPARTACUS!

SpartacusIf this trailer, straight from Comic-Con International, is any indication, then January 2010 can't come soon enough! The 13-episode Starz (You read that right, Starz!) series Spartacus: Blood and Sand boasts Sam Raimi (Spider-Man), Rob Talpert (Drag Me to Hell) and Steven S. DeKnight (Smallville) executive producing. It features Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), Peter Mensa (300) and Erin Cummings (Dollhouse).

Everything about this trailer makes the show look amazing. Amazing costuming, good casting and dialogue. The effects style borrows heavily from the hyper-realism of 300, which adds a great dramatic flare. Damn, what more can I say? Just watch the thing and wait with bated breath until January like me.

Looks good. I never got in to Rome, so hopefully this is a bit more engaging.

Well there's always one...

Someone has to be the person to make a comment complaining about something, so I guess we got one early.

Agree with Mertz. Looks like a stupidly expensive (and long) music video clip.

Seriously?? It couldn't look more like a lame amalgamation of Gladiator, 300 and Rome, but with cheaper effects, crappier dialogue and much worse acting.

Why is everyone so surprised that Starz is getting into quality original programming? The same sort of "Starz? Really?" attitude popped up when discussing Party Down as well.

Do they have some sort of "ghetto" reputation I'm unaware of, even though they're showing the same calibre of movie that HBO and Showtime are?
