ZULU DAWN Released on Blu-Ray 12 March

     I've just heard that Zulu Dawn is to be released in a blu-ray and DVD combo pack on 12 March (2013) by Severin Films. Apparently it's only officially released in the US, but it's a region-free disc, so should play everywhere, and you will be able to get it via Amazon.
