CENTURY CITY, Calif. – Discover what evil has befallen the kingdom in this magical tale of knights and kings, when In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale takes the high-def throne as an Unrated Director’s Cut Blu-ray Disc on December 16th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A thrilling fantasy film based on the legendary video game “Dungeon Siege,” the epic tale chronicles the adventure of a simple family man who reluctantly turns into a warrior after an army of murderous beasts ransacks his peaceful village, killing his son and capturing his wife. Facing death in the name of honor, he begins his treacherous search and comes face-to-face with his true destiny.

Best known for transforming video games into original onscreen adventures, filmmaker Uwe Boll (BloodRayne, Alone in the Dark) has directed, written or produced almost two-dozen films in his career. The Unrated Director’s Cut Blu-ray Disc of In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale features over 35 minutes of never-before-seen footage not shown in theaters, plus includes an all-new, BD-exclusive director audio commentary along with deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurette.

Set against some of the most rugged and breathtaking terrain ever captured on film, In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale stars one of today’s most in-demand action heroes Jason Statham (Death Race, Crank, The Transporter) along with an all-star supporting cast including Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, Wild Hogs), Leelee Sobieski (88 Minutes), Claire Forlani (“CSI: NY,” Meet Joe Black), John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings), Matthew Lillard (Scream, Scooby-Doo), Kristanna Loken (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) as well as Golden Globe® winners Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Burt Reynolds (Boogie Nights). The In The Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale Unrated Director’s Cut BD will be available for $29.99 SRP.

The life of a simple family man named Farmer (Statham) is changed forever when a horrifying army of animal-like warriors known as Krugs who are controlled by the evil sorcerer Gallian (Liotta) invade his village, murder his son and kidnap his wife (Forlani).
