A third installment in THE SCORPION KING series comes to DVD and Blu-ray this Tuesday January 10, 2012. What better way to prepare for that release than checking out some behind the scenes featurettes.

The first featurette focuses on how the production team applied the many scars the warriors dawn upon their bodies. I love seeing behind the scenes about the special effects of simple things such as scars and tattoos.

 

The next featurette goes behind the scenes showing how shooting on location in Thailand affected the cast and crew.

 

The last featurette focuses on the last day of principle photography shooting some rather large fight sequences.

 

Synopsis:

Since his triumphant rise to power in the original blockbuster The Scorpion King, Mathayus’ kingdom has fallen and he’s lost his queen to plague. Now an assassin for hire, he must defend a kingdom from an evil tyrant and his ghost warriors for the chance to regain the power and glory he once knew. Starring Ron Perlman (Hellboy) and Billy Zane (Titanic), and featuring 6-time WWE® champion Dave Bautista and UFC® star Kimbo Slice, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption takes The Mummy phenomenon to an all-new level of epic action and non-stop adventure!
