From the Press Release:

Eureka! Entertainment have announced the Blu-ray release of THE WAR LORD. One of the finest historical adventure films ever made, THE WAR LORD dramatises with uncommon intelligence and integrity the brutality, difficulties and injustices of the Middle Ages. 

Charlton Heston stars as Chrysagon, an honoured knight who takes over a castle tower in the swampland of Normandy to strengthen his duke's authority. But his struggles to maintain power in the face of Pagan villagers, barbarian attackers and his brother's jealous counsel are shaken by his growing weariness with bloodshed in a cruel world.

Never before released in high definition anywhere in the world, this collaboration between director Franklin Schaffner (Patton) and the legendary Charlton Heston, three years before their iconic reunion on PLANET OF THE APES, is a gripping saga of ferocious battles, heartfelt emotion and powerful storytelling.


• Gorgeous 1080p transfer the film in its original aspect ratio

• Optional English SDH

• Isolated music & effects track

• Original theatrical trailer

• More on disc extras to be announced close to release

• Booklet with a new essay, and rare archival imagery
