Biblical Epics get the Blu-ray Treatment

Gone are the days of the biblical epic films that graced our wide silver screens, but they are making a grand comeback this Easter with blu-ray and digitally remastered editions.

Topping the charts is the Academy Award winning newly re-release of Cecil B. Demille's 'THE TEN COMMANDMENTS' on DVD and first time release on blu-ray.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo gift set comes packaged in a stunning limited edition box featuring an image of the Red Sea that parts when the box is opened to reveal two tablets, which encase all six discs in the set. The set also includes a commemorative photo and archive book, a new 75-minute, in-depth documentary about the film and its impact, original costume sketches, the 1923 silent film The Ten Commandments (also available for the first time on Blu-ray), international premiere photos, production notes from Cecil B. DeMille, correspondence from Charlton Heston, feature commentary and more.

'The Ten Commandments' has never looked better then it does right now on blu-ray and an HDTV wide screen TV. The colors are bolder and the image is sharper than ever, the characters appear to leap right off the screen and into your living room. If your a fan of biblical epic films, this is a MUST HAVE for any home video collection.

Also just released on Blu-ray for the very first time is John Huston's 'THE BIBLE' which tells the Old Testament stories from the awe-inspiring creation of man, to the remarkable story of Noah's ark, to the mind-blowing destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Again, just like 'THE TEN COMMANDMENTS', 'THE BIBLE' is newly remastered for the ultimate high-definition experience.

Other Easter classics are being released on blu-ray this season, 'THE KING OF KINGS' and 'THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD' will soon be hitting your local shelves. Add these to your home library along side 'THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST', 'QUO VADIS' and 'THE ROBE' and you'll be set for the ultimate Epic Biblical High Definition movie marathon.
