The Final Inquiry coming to DVD February 19th

Academy Award®-winner F. Murray Abraham (Amadeus), Dolph Lundgren (Rocky IV, The Punisher) and Oscar nominee Max von Sydow (The Minority Report) star in a thrilling journey into the ancient Holy Land where a secret new faith will enthrall an empire, in The Final Inquiry, transcending to DVD February 19th from Fox Home Entertainment. The film, directed by Los Angeles Italian Film Awards-winning director Guilio Base (Audience Award, 1999, La Bomba), also starring Daniele Liotti (Mad Love) and Mónica Cruz (Last Hour). The Final Inquiry begins three years after the Crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth. Rumors that he is a prophet who has risen from the dead are inciting the people to rebel against the Roman Empire. In an effort to control the unrest, the Roman Emperor recruits a formerly exiled, clever and disenchanted investigator to disprove the story. As the search is aided by a beautiful, young Israeli woman and hampered by Governor Pontius Pilate, a proud, honest Roman hero is drawn deeply into a mystifying realm of love, honor and spiritual beliefs. The Final Inquiry DVD includes a making-of featurette and will be available to own for the suggested retail price of $26.98 U.S. / $37.98 Canada. Pre-book is January 23rd, 2008.

After a harrowing but victorious campaign against the barbarian hordes, Rome’s greatest general Titos Valerius Tauros receives a special assignment from the emperor: travel in secret to the city of Jerusalem to investigate the recent death and possible resurrection of a crucified man. Unwilling to believe the alleged miracle, Tauros sets out to discredit the rumors and put an end to the spreading cult of Jesus. But in a land touched by faith and hope, the secrets he uncovers and the people he meets may prove strong enough to crack even the hardest heart and bring light to an empire.

Special Features:
The Final Inquiry is presented in widescreen (1.78:1 aspect ratio) with Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound as well as English, French and Spanish subtitles. Bonus content includes: The Making of The Final Inquiry
