As previously reported, Severin Films will release Enzo G. Castellari's war epic La battaglia d'Inghilterra aka Eagles Over London (1969). Now the release date has been set to July 28, 2009. No tech specs at the moment... stay tuned!
Nine years before his WWII classic INGLORIOUS BASTARDS, Enzo Castellari virtually invented the 'Macaroni Combat' genre with this over-the-top saga of valor, vengeance and machine-gun mayhem. Hollywood legend Van Johnson (THE CAINE MUTINY) and Frederick Stafford (Hitchcock's TOPAZ) star as military officers pursuing a merciless team of Nazi saboteurs through war-ravaged London, featuring Castellari's jaw-dropping recreations of the evacuation of Dunkirk, the Battle Of Britain and more. Francisco Rabal (NIGHTMARE CITY), Ida Galli (THE PSYCHIC) and Luigi Pistilli (THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE UGLY) co-star in this explosive epic – also known as BATTLE SQUADRON – now restored on DVD for the first time ever in America!
