The Russian war drama will hit Blu-ray in May, and you can pre-order it now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Sony is preparing 'Stalingrad (2013)' for Blu-ray on May 13.
'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
Specs and supplements have not been announced yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $35.99.
