Russian Blockbuster Stalingrad Heads to U.S. IMAX Theaters

Posted January 9, 2014 06:35 PM by Webmaster

Director Fedor Bondarchuk's (son of legendary director Sergei Bondarchuk, War and Peace, Waterloo) epic war film Stalingrad, a box office hit in Russia last year, is coming to U.S. IMAX 3D theaters in February. Columbia Pictures will distribute the film, which was selected to represent Russia in the best Foreign Language Film category of the 2014 Academy Awards.

Stalingrad will open in IMAX theaters across the country on February 28th.

Official synopsis: Stalingrad, Russia's first ever 3D film, is a drama set in 1942, during one of the most important battles of World War II, which stopped the progress of Nazi forces and turned the tide of war in favor of the Allies. The Soviet army mounts a counter-attack on the Nazi forces that occupy half of Stalingrad on the other side of the Volga, but the operation to cross the river is unsuccessful. A few soldiers who managed to get to the other side take refuge in a house on the bank of Volga. Here they find a girl who didn't escape when the Germans came. While the whole might of the German army descends onto them, the heroes of Stalingrad experience love, loss, joy and the sense of ultimate freedom that can only be felt by those about to die. They defend the house at all costs while the Red Army prepares for another attack.

I really enjoy films about WWII. That said; the trailer looks like an American summer blockbuster with it's CGI, slo-mo, stylized fighting, not to mention the 3D element. I'll reserve judgement until I read about it and eventually see it (if it even plays here) but I hope it's closer to Downfall than Pearl Harbor.

There was another film called Stalingrad, the same subject matter. It was produced by the people who did
Das Boot. Gritty intense low budget film, worth seeing!

I like the 90's version of Stalingrad. This looks a bit needlessly blown-up and CGI'd. Like you can't depict the sufferings of war without that stuff nowadays. As in, people can't think and feel without it (or rather are assumed not being able to). And there's definitely too much war mongering going on even today, IRL.
However, I might be wrong about this movie (not that Russia is especially known for being a "loving and tolerant" country, but rather inhumane...). And Thomas Kretschmann is in it. He's cool and always manages to bring a special sense of presence to the screen. I mean, he is awesome in The Pianist; my favorite WWII movie.

Did they Dub the movie because he says fire in English?

I'd love to see this movie. It's a shame how American History textbooks like to make us think that we defeated the Nazis single-handedly, with a little help from our British sidekicks.

75% of Hitler's forces were in the Soviet Union when we stormed Normandy.

My g/f just asked me the other day what movie I would remake if I could. My answer was "Enemy at the Gates" because the Battle of Stalingrad--one of the largest battles ever--has such potential as dramatic story. Unfortunately EatG was nothing more than an awful love triangle.

This movie has potential but I fear it was made less for us history buffs than the summer popcorn crowd.

Stalingrad (1993) is a good movie but it didn't have nearly the budget needed to tell the story of the Battle of Stalingrad.
