IMAGE ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS

   NATIONAL LAMPOON’S

THE LEGEND OF AWESOMEST MAXIMUS

CHATSWORTH, CA– On March 20th, Image Entertainment proudly presents National Lampoon’s The Legend of Awesomest Maximus on Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital Download. National Lampoon’s The Legend of Awesomest Maximus is an epic comedy that’s as big and bold as its name, a movie with the courage and strength to spoof the sword and sandal genre with hilarious take-offs that skewer every gladiator cliché from 300 to Braveheart. This is the wild and bawdy brand of humor that’s become synonymous with the National Lampoon brand in classic films like Animal House and Vacation. Pre-book is February 21st with an SRP of $29.97 for Blu-ray™ and $27.97 for DVD.

 

National Lampoon’s The Legend of Awesomest Maximus is from the director of Revenge of the Nerds, and it’s easily the most outrageous parody in years. Finally a film with more laughs than Gladiator, hotter bods than Troy, and army of more men than 300 – well, one more man! Horny King Looney of Troy (Rip Torn, Men in Black) sends slacker general Awesomest Maximus (Will Sasso, “Mad TV,” The Three Stooges) to maintain peace with rival King Erotic of Greece. But when Prince Orlando, who's more into fashion than fighting, steals the King's wife Ellen (Sophie Monk, Date Movie) to be his BFF, it's war! Will Awesomest live up to his godly destiny? Can he defeat the mighty warrior Testiclees (Ian Ziering, “Beverly Hills 90210”)?

 

Can he light a fire under his gold-digging wife Hotessa (Kristanna Loken, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines)? The only thing that can be predicted is that this is one savagely funny farce from the people know how to throw a toga party!

 

Co-starring Tony Cox (Bad Santa), Deon Richmond (Not Another Teen Movie, Hatchet) and Russell Peters (New Year’s Eve), with rapper Ludacris as narrator, a bevy of beautiful slave girls and a giant “Trojan Penis” National Lampoon’s The Legend of Awesomest Maximus is one of the most unforgettable comedies you’ll see this year - one might even say, it’s the most awesomest comedy of the year!
