1st CONtv Original Feature, Mythica, Trailer and Poster
Mythica: A Quest for Heroes, the first original movie on CONtv, debuts March 31st, 2015 exclusively on CONtv. The film’s marquee header is Kevin Sorbo, known for Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and the cast also includes Melanie Stone (Survivor), Jake Stormoen (The Christmas Dragon), Nicola Posener (Dawn of the Dragonslayer), and Adam Johnson (Dragonfyre). The next two installments in the film trilogy, Mythica: The Darkspore and Mythica: The Necromancer will be released exclusively on CONtv later this year. Mythica is known for getting fan support through Kickstarter.
“Mythica captures the thrill of the role-playing game experience: forming an underdog team of disparate heroes to win fortune and glory. It was made by true fans, for true fans,” says Arrowstorm Executive Kynan Griffin. “Fan support from the Kickstarter campaign is a crucial driving force in the creation and success of the Mythica franchise.”
“As an epic fantasy movie series, Mythica follows the tradition of Lord of the Rings, Narnia and Harry Potter. The studios have run out of fantasy blockbusters, and Mythica was made to keep fantasy thriving across the globe,” says Arrowstorm Executive Jason Faller.
“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 (The Crown and the Dragon).
“As this skillfully created, sweeping fantasy epic touches on the myths and legends that appear in some of the most popular role playing games, comics, video games, and more, Mythica is the perfect choice as CONtv’s first original feature film,” said Erick Opeka, EVP and GM for CONtv. “Everyone who served in the creation of the film are true fans of the genre, and we know that the Mythica trilogy will absolutely resonate with discriminating CONtv users.”
