Trivia:
The film was submitted by the Russians as their official selection for the Best Foreign language film at the Academy Awards, but it did not make the short list for the final list of nominations.

The movie was a phenomenal box office success in Russia, although it received mixed responses from critics, who interestingly found the film more of a visual spectacle than a meaty film about such an important historical period.

This movie created history by becoming the first non-American IMAX formatted feature film. Presented in 3D, this a visual spectacle, with massive swarms of soldiers, swooping camera shots, and explosion after explosion.

The Battle of Stalingrad, upon which this movie is based, is one of the defining and most brutal battles of the Second World War. With a mix of hubris from the German side, and unabashed attrition from the Russians, this was a seven-month campaign that left more than 1.5 million people dead, yet was critical to breaking the back of the German Army and paving the way for their eventual defeat.

Fedor Bondarchuk's "Stalingrad," is a $30 million war epic being released in North America by Sony Pictures. that looks closely at The Battle of Stalingrad in WWII.
