The lesser known Caesar of Rome, Augustus makes its debut on DVD this coming January from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
n 42 BC, Rome is in the middle of a civil war. Together with his friend Agrippa, the young Augustus goes to Spain in order to help Julius Caesar in his struggle against the troops of Pompeii. Caesar honors his adopted son Augustus with a triumphal entry into Rome and then sends him to Greece together with his friends Agrippa and Maecenas. There, Augustus hears the news of Caesar’s assassination and he returns to Rome with his friends.
The disc will contain no supplements, but will be in Dolby Digital 5.1 and the confusing sounding aspect ratio of anamorphic widescreen 1.33. The disc arrives on January 4th with a $24.95 suggested list price.
