Starting 30 March 2016, a PAL R0 DVD can be purchased from NZ sources for about $30nz. The jacket slick says the feature is presented in a 1.85:1 format (but I measured 2.33:1), 16x9 enhanced, with a DD Surround 5.1 English language track. There are optional English subtitles. On the same date, it is released on 1080p All Regions, (although the box slick incorrectly says it is Region B) Blu-ray with DTS-HD MA 5.1 spoken English and optional English subtitles.
