The Scorpion King: Rise of a Warrior is out on DVD August 19, 2008.  It is the prequel to The Scorpion King.  I loved that movie read my full review here.  It looks like this will mainly appeal to fans of the sword and sorcery genera and action films.  Dwayne Johnson is not in the movie which could be due to many different factors.  The trailer looks ok and it is definitely a renter.


The Plot / Story: See how the legend of The Scorpion King began! When a young Mathayus witnesses his father's death at the hands of the king (UFC Champion Randy Couture), his quest for vengeance transforms him into the most feared warrior of the ancient world. From the director of Resident Evil: Extinction and Highlander comes a heroic adventure filled with heart-stopping action and thrilling visual effects! (via amazon)
