This past April Starz' Spartacus: War of the Damned starring Liam McIntyre may have come to the bloody end that students of history — and fans of the 1960 Kirk Douglas movie — expected. But it isn't only the legend of the Thracian slave turned rebel that lives on. So do a treasure trove of bonus features, outtakes, documentaries, and scene deconstructions from the show that'll be released on the Blu-ray edition of Spartacus' third and final season Sept. 3. Above is a clip of McIntyre and other actors from the show talking about the bloody beatings they'd endure when filming the series' sword-and-sandal action scenes. And below, get a behind the scenes glimpse of how much of the series was actually filmed in front of greenscreens. Wanna guess how much? A lot.
