The first ever big-budget 3D film to come from Russia has just finished filming and is ready to be molded into a cinematic experience. "Stalingrad" - based off of the 1942 battle of the same name - is set to hit Russian IMAX theaters in 2013.
Stalingrad, which is considered one of the most important battles of the second world war, will soon be released in Russian IMAX theaters as the country's first big-budget 3D movie.
According to the IMAX website, the film version of the event - which halted progression of Nazi forces and turned the tide in favor of the Allied nations - is set to hit the big screen in 3D next year. The filming stage, done in St. Petersburg, has just been completed and Stalingrad is ready for post-production.
The film's general plot, as Euronews describes, is that of Soviet soldiers and their efforts to protect a trapped young girl against the invasion of Nazis.
IMAX offers the following synopsis:
"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."
The production of the film cost 30 million dollars or 24 million euros says Stereoscopy News. It was directed by Russian Fyodor Bondarchuk, and produced by Ukrainian Alexander Rodnyansky.
