The highest-grossing Russian movie of all time -- and the country's official entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the Oscars -- is coming to the U.S., and we have an action-packed clip from Stalingrad! Watch the intense plane crash scene from the World War II drama, followed by the film's trailer.
Opening exclusively in IMAX 3D nationwide for a one-week engagement this Friday, Stalingrad chronicles the epic 1942 battle between a band of determined Russian soldiers and the ruthless German army that turned the tide of World War II.
Directed by Fedor Bondarchuk and based on chapters from the novel Life and Fate by Vasiliy Grossman, the film stars Thomas Kretschmann, Petr Fedorov, Sergey Bondarchuk, Mariya Smolnikova and Yanina Studilina.
