Prepare for the extraordinary.

Allan Quatermain (Sean Connery), the world's greatest adventurer, is pulled in to lead a legion of superheroes the likes of which the world has never seen. Quatermain's extraordinary "League" is comprised of Captain Nemo (Naseeruddin Shah), Dracula vampire Mina Harker (Peta Wilson), an invisible man Rodney Skinner (Tony Curran), American Secret Service Agent Tom Sawyer (Shane West), the seemingly immortal Dorian Gray (Stuart Townsend) and the monstrous dual personalities of Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde (Jason Flemyng).

The League members are staunch individualists, outcasts in fact, with chequered pasts and singular gifts that have been both blessing and curse. Now they must learn to trust each other and work as a team for the very hope of civilisation. With little preparation and no time to lose, they will be transported via Captain Nemo's extraordinary submarine, the Nautilus, to the front-line of defence: Venice, Italy. There, a masked madman known as the Fantom plans to sabotage a conference of world leaders by setting off a domino chain of explosions, sinking the entire city. The threat is catastrophic, the risks are staggering. The League has 96 hours to save the world.
