To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic screen giant Zulu, along with the 135th anniversary of the troop’s victory, a new generation can now enjoy a brand new collectible anniversary edition of this BAFTA® nominated movie juggernaut, complete with a special commemorative sleeve.
On the 85th anniversary of the Battle of Rorke’s Drift during the Anglo-Zulu war in South Africa, the theatrical release of Zulu made an indelible mark on British cinematic history.
Cy Endfield’s (The Mysterious Island, Zulu Dawn) dramatic military re-enactment; Zulu, depicted the ultimate David and Goliath tale of a relatively small garrison of 139 British and colonial soldiers stalwartly defending their mission station against an army of 4,500 Zulu warriors. Eleven of the surviving men were subsequently awarded a Victoria Cross for outstanding bravery on the battle field.
The 50th anniversary edition of Zulu comes to Blu-ray and DVD on 5th May 2014.
