  1. Just watched the movie , enjoyed it. BUT…was ticked I had to sit through blueray addys & bonus features wouldn’t play “the making of the movie” as DVD said it would/had.


  2. I’m another kiwi waiting with great excitement for the film to be released in NZ. I love the book and have recently read parts of it to a year 8 class. I was able to show them the trailer and they are very excited about it too. Bring it on! :)

  4. Here in Illinois, I have just watched this wonderful film.Absolutely great work by everyone involved. If one were to own just 1 ‘Roman legion’ film, this should be that one.Authentic to a fault. There is a release with alternate endings and an unrated version.I honestly cannot praise this film enough.

    • I have found out that the film comes out in Australia on July 21st. I am still trying to see if that means NZ then or thereabouts as well. I have posted the coming release dates for both film and the DVD.


  5. Here in New Zealand we’re still waiting for the actual film to hit the movie theatres and I haven’t been able to track down a release date as yet :( Maybe we’ll get the DVD first!
