Stalingrad (2013) Gets U.S. Release Date

Posted March 9, 2014 01:08 AM by Webmaster

Sony PicturesSony Pictures has revealed that it plans to release on Blu-ray director Fedor Bondarchuk's (son of legendary director Sergei Bondarchuk, War and Peace, Waterloo) epic war film Stalingrad (2013). The release will be available for purchase on May 13th.

A box office hit in Russia last year, Stalingrad is currently playing in select IMAX 3D theaters across the country.

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. Stalingrad was selected to represent Russia in the best Foreign Language Film category of the 2014 Academy Awards

Are we getting a 3D release or not? Because from what I've read, this would be demo-worthy 3D material for Sony's HDTVs.

I saw "Stalingrad" in IMAX 3-D two days ago and enjoyed the film immensely. I hope for a 3-D release as well--- good use of the medium and not "gimmicky." Stunning battle sequences!!! The director obviously has learned much from his father!

Forgive slightly off-t paragraph here: Hopefully the international interest in "Stalingrad" will spark a major restoration of the director's father Sergei Bondarchuk's incredible multi-film masterpiece "War and Peace"-- a film that should be studied by all young directors, particularly those with aspirations to "action" shoots! A five-year shoot, 100 million 1960s dollars cost, full armies of real people, not cgi-puppets, to the tune of 25000 in one scene! Please-- a restoration soon!! My dvd set needs retiring!!

The Russian 3D Blu-ray versions looks to be 16x9, at least from the Russian BD's on sale on eBay. Wonder if the movie was shot open-matte.

How does this movie compare to the 1993 German-made version and Enemy at the Gates?

Wow, 261 Minutes long??!!

I Love a nice EPIC War Movie (4 hours & 21 minutes!!) as much as the next guy & hope this is as good as it looked in the trailers I've seen.

* Can anyone confirm this run-time is the same as they've seen in (IMAX) theaters? IMDB has the run-time as 131 minutes, so maybe the BD is the Unedited/Director's Cut *

@Aerodude73 -- The IMAX 3D showing (Panavision scope) I saw in New Orleans last Thursday afternoon was the 131 minute one. I'd like to see the longer as well, but I was thoroughly impressed with it as-is.

Stalingrad is the best story yet to be told in movie format. The German version was too small-scale and Enemy at the Gates, little more than a love triangle, was just awful. I really hope this movie had the budget AND the wherewithal to avoid turning the movie into something you'd see Arnold, Sly or Statham in.

Ty "ilovenola2" - thought so, so I wonder if we'll find out what the extra time Actually is (?). Maybe they're including some Bonus Features ( ), but I Hope it's an optional Director's Cut (the 261 minutes)
