Magnolia Pictures will release on Blu-ray Norwegian director Petter Næss' Into the White a.k.a Cross of Honor (2012), starring Florian Lukas, David Kross, and Stig Henrik Hoff. Street date is June 4th.
Official synopsis: At the beginning of World War II a hostile chance encounter in the skies above the harsh Norwegian wilderness leaves two aircraft – one British, one German – shot down in a remote and isolated region. By strange coincidence the crews seek shelter in the same cabin. They must battle to survive the brutal winter in order to get back to the war – and to fighting one another. Although war has made them enemies, as the days go by animosity proves hard to maintain. Mutual need leads to unlikely friendships, and the rules of war must be put aside.
Is this just another Hell in the Pacific remake, or do they manage to go somewhere new with this one, or at least take a more scenic route to the same end? I like the setting, as long as too much of the film isn't confined to a small cabin.
