Stalingrad - Trailer
Director Fydor BondarchukYear 2014Genre(s) War
In 1942 during World War II, Nazi Germany attempts a brutal invasion of the Russian city Stalingrad. Fortunes initially look to be in their favour as the Soviet Union fails to protect their town from a lethal shower of bombs which level most of the buildings, but an incredible determination forces the Soviet forces to continue their defence, no matter how futile it may seem. One group of soldiers decide to do their best to defend one of the few important buildings of the city still standing from being reduced to rubble and along the way find themselves putting all their fears aside to protect two Russian women living there. It soon becomes clear that unity and love are the only things that can really bring them victory in one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
'Stalingrad' is the latest portrayal of the World War II Battle of Stalingrad to be put to screen in an epic action movie that shows the hope and solidarity behind the Soviet victory. It has been directed by Fedor Bondarchuk ('9th Company', 'The Inhabited Island') and written by Sergey Snezhkin ('Bury Me Behind the Baseboard', 'Marigolds in Flower') and Ilya Tilkin ('The Man at the Window'), and it's set to be released in the UK on February 21st 2014.
