As the highest-grossing Russian film of all time and Russia’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film to the 86th Academy Awards®STALINGRAD contrasts the grand scale of the famous battle with the intimate human drama among the Russian soldiers, the few remaining civilians and the German soldiers who invaded the city.

    The STALINGRAD Blu-ray comes with two all-new featurettes. “The Making of Stalingrad” is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and “Stereoscopic Stalingrad” features experts Steve Schklair and Matthew Blute, describing how Russia’s very first IMAX 3D film was created.

     

    Synopsis:

    A band of determined Russian soldiers fight to hold a strategic building in their devastated city against a ruthless German army, and in the process become deeply connected to a Russian woman who has been living there.

    The cover of Stalingrad is a little misleading having only Blu-ray + Diital HD printed on the banner :wacko: , but it's great to see that Sony includes a note - "Includes Blu-ray 3D Version" on the front of the case! :)

    Pretty good movie. Saw it in IMAX. Interesting bit of trivia. Thomas Kretschmann appeared in both the 1993 release of Stalingrad and the most recent release. I'm in, 3D effects were excellent in IMAX.

    Does this film have depth and popout or just depth. ? Subtitles and 3D is a bit tricky to watch and i'm not a fan of dubs.

    Aspect ratio is 2.35:1. I can think of no reason that the subtitles can't be placed outside the 2.35:1 window, unless they're like the subtitles in Night Watch.
