1715. The Golden Age of Piracy. New Providence Island is a lawless territory, controlled by history's most notorious pirate captains. The most feared is Captain Flint. As the British Navy returns to redeem their land and exterminate Flint and his crew, another side of him emerges. Captain Flint aligns himself with Eleanor Guthrie, daughter of the local kingpin, to hunt the ultimate prize and ensure their survival. Many opponents stand in their way: rival captains, jealous of Flint's power; Eleanor's ambitious and intrusive father; and a young sailor recently recruited onto Flint's crew, John Silver, who constantly undermines his captain's agenda.
It won't even debut until a week from Saturday, but now Amazon has ALREADY begun taking pre-orders for a release of Black Sails - Season 1
on both DVD
and high-def Blu-ray Disc
. These listings are prior to the official Starz/Anchor Bay announcement for the title, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
Pricing is available, however, currently showing $49.98 SRP for the standard DVD and $59.99 SRP for the Blu-ray version (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, nor box art, but below we do have a trailer for the series. We'll update you further on this title, of course, just as soon as we find out anything more! Our thanks to one of our readers, "Charles," for the heads-up about this item.
