(BARCELONA, SPAIN) -- Private Media Group Inc. a worldwide leader in premium quality adult entertainment products, services and content, is pleased to announce the premiere of its biggest production of the year, "The Private Gladiator" trilogy.
"The Private Gladiator" utilizes techniques and production values from mainstream cinema to create a new standard in adult filmmaking. Filmed in Hungary and Italy, the Hollywood-style production features 3D digital effects, wild animals, over two hundred extras, and detailed costumes and studio sets, including a full-sized replica of a Roman arena.
In order to recreate the atmosphere of the original "Gladiator", Italian director Antonio Adamo -- known for his acclaimed Private-Penthouse and Virtualia series -- used production advisors from the Italian film industry, professional costume and set designers, and dozens of technicians, make-up artists, as well as props from the original "Gladiator" production.
Private is releasing a special Collector's Limited Edition of "The Private Gladiator", a two-DVD set which contains the film plus a separate disc of extras, including the director's cut, the making of the film, interviews, as well as a booklet with production notes and photos. In May, Private celebrated the premiere of the production with a special "Gladiator"-themed party during its annual three-day event at the Cannes Film Festival.
The Private Gladiator is available now in all quality specialty stores as well as on Private's on-line shop, shop. private.com .
