SANTA MONICA, CA, September 19, 2012 – A hundred years after the fateful maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic comes the thrilling adventure Titanic: Blood & Steel, available December 4 on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and Digital Download from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The 12-part television mini-series chronicles the story behind the construction of the “unsinkable” ship. Starring Kevin Zegers (TV’s “Gossip Girl”), Alessandra Mastronardi (To Rome With Love), Derek Jacobi (The Kings Speech), Neve Campbell (The Scream Franchise), and with Chris Noth (TV’s “The Good Wife”), Titanic: Blood & Steel is directed by Ciarán Donnelly (Showtime’s “The Tudors”).
The 3-disc Blu-ray and 3-disc DVD sets both include two extensive featurettes: a “making of” plus a behind-the-scenes look into the visual effects of the mini-series. Titanic: Blood & Steel will be available for the first time on Blu-ray Disc and DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.97 and $29.98, respectively.
Belfast, 1909. The Harland and Wolff shipyard has been handed the greatest project in its history. It will build a great, unsinkable ship. And it will be called the RMS Titanic. Titanic: Blood & Steel is the untold story of the building of a legend, and the many lives it affected during its 3-year construction. To its wealthy investors, it was a dream. To the middle class who oversaw the project, it was a challenge. But to the working class who built it, Titanic was the start of a revolution. With Ireland under British rule, and the Protestant and Catholic struggle intensifying, Titanic was more than a ship…it was a symbol of ambition, hope and unity.
