LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Following the worldwide premiere on digital streaming channel CONtv, the explosive fantasy tale trilogy Mythica can now be viewed on BitTorrent as the streaming service makes it available today as part of a BitTorrent Bundle.
Starring fan favorite Kevin Sorbo (“Hercules: The Legendary Journeys,” “Gene Rodenberry’s Andromeda”), “Mythica: A Quest For Heroes” premiered exclusively on March 31, 2015 on CONtv, the on-demand streaming channel celebrating all things Comic Con.
With its new premiere on BitTorrent Bundle (https://bundles.bittorrent.com/bundles/mythica), the direct-to-fan publishing platform reaching a global audience of 200 million, fans now have even more ways to access the mystical thrills and spellbinding effects seen in the film.
From sci-fi and action-adventure powerhouse Arrowstorm Entertainment, the CONtv original movie was created for fans by fans through a successful Kickstarter campaign. Directed by Anne K. Black (“The Crown and the Dragon”), the first film “Mythica: A Quest For Heroes” conjures a captivating world that mixes magic with explosive adventure. Starring Melanie Stone (“Survivor”), Jake Stormoen (“The Christmas Dragon”), Nicola Posener (“Dawn of the Dragonslayer”), and Adam Johnson (“Dragonfyre”), the film is a legendary fantasy story not to be missed.
“CONtv is excited to give audiences more places to watch this highly popular epic,” said Erick Opeka, EVP and GM for CONtv. “As BitTorrent is a leader in new ways to view and share movie content, it is the perfect expansion platform for CONtv’s first original film.”
Inspired by her Wizard mentor Gojun (Kevin Sorbo), Marek (Stone) escapes indentured servitude and overcomes physical limitations to hone her own mysterious powers. When the beautiful Priestess Teela (Posener) falls victim to a massive Ogre, Marek rallies a misfit team of adventurers, including Thane the Warrior (Johnson) and Dagen the Thief (Stormoen), to join her in a fight to save her sister and their Legacy.
“So many fantasy stories, especially movies, are dominated by male protagonists. Mythica turns this convention on its head, featuring a strong and complex female hero in the lead. Exploring her story and relationships in a male-dominated fantasy universe makes Mythica compelling and unique,” says Director Anne K. Black.
“Mythica: A Quest For Heroes” is the first film of the fantastical epic trilogy Mythica. The next two installments in the film trilogy, “Mythica: The Darkspore” and “Mythica: The Necromancer” will be released exclusively on CONtv later this year.
