Beserk - The Egg of the King
An epic action-adventure tale set against a dark, European-inspired medieval fantasy world, Berserk - The Egg of the King follows the story of Guts, a lone mercenary renowned for his ferocity and unmatched in a fight especially when armed with his imposing sword, a towering blade as tall as he. His destiny is to eventually become `The Black Swordsman` and he will face untold horrors in battle. In this first film from The Golden Age Arc trilogy, Guts` actions in combat capture the attention of Griffith, charismatic leader of the Band of the Hawk mercenaries. Griffith soon moves to recruit Guts into their ranks despite protest from second in command, Casca, whose skill and fiery temper is matched only by loyalty to her comrades. Yet despite a slew of victories and successes, Guts begins to question Griffith`s true purpose, whose ambition may lead them all to a horrible fate. Based on Kentaro Miura`s bestselling manga series which has sold over 30 million copies worldwide Berserk: The Golden Age Arc trilogy takes the franchise into a bold and exciting new direction. The award winning Studio 4C (Mind Game, Spriggan) bring Berserk to the screen with cutting-edge animation, intricately detailed swordplay and a gripping storyline.
