'Stalingrad' Dated for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Oct 30, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Joseph Vilsmaier's 1993 war drama will march to Blu-ray in January.

In an early announcement to retailers, Hen's Tooth will release 'Stalingrad' on Blu-ray on January 8.

In the spring of 1942, German troops advanced deep into the Soviet Union en route to Stalingrad. Hitler seriously misjudged the tenacity of the Red Army and was convinced that the city could be conquered before winter. Ordinary foot soldiers, inadequately clothed and without sufficient food, struggled just to stay alive. Abandoned by their leaders, Nazi troops froze and starved to death in a conflict that left over one million dead. 'Stalingrad' graphically depicts this turning point in World War II as a vast tableau of horror in which the average German soldier was as much a victim of Nazi evil as the Soviet people.

Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
