Women Of "Black Sails"

Sneak Peek footage, plus images from producer Michael Bay's STARZ pirate' drama series "Black Sails", with music by "The Walking Dead" composer Bear McCreary, now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay Entertainment:

" 1715, 'The Golden Age of Piracy' in the Caribbean is at its apex. The former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory, controlled by the most notorious pirate captains in history. 

"The most feared among them is 'Captain Flint'.

"But as the British Navy returns to these waters, threatening to exterminate Flint and his crew, another side of him emerges.

"Driven by deep, complicated, even romantic motives, Flint allies himself with the formidable 'Eleanor Guthrie', daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who turns the pirates’ loot into profits.

"Together, they forge a plan to hunt the ultimate prize, and by winning it...

"...stave off reclamation of their home to ensure their survival.

"Arrayed against them are a series of opponents: rival captains, jealous of Flint's power; Eleanor's father, whose ambitions for the island conflict with his daughter's...

"...and a young sailor, 'John Silver', recently recruited onto Flint's crew, who will somehow manage to constantly undermine his captain’s agenda..."

"In Season 2, the 'Walrus' crew is stranded with an army of Spanish soldiers standing between them and their precious 'Urca' gold.

" And with their crimes against their brethren no longer a secret, 'Flint' and 'Silver' must join forces in a desperate bid for survival.

"Meanwhile, 'Eleanor Guthrie' struggles to maintain her grip on Nassau, as a new breed of pirate arrives in the form of 'Ned Low', a man for whom violence isn’t just a tool, it’s a pastime.

"As blood is spilled and tensions mount, 'Charles Vane' must decide which he values more: Eleanor’s life or the respect of his men.

"And unbeknownst to all of them, a prize of immeasurable value has already been smuggled onto the island. One whose discovery will alter the very landscape of their world and force everyone in Nassau toward the ultimate judgement: are they men, or monsters?..."
