Stalingrad: Award-Winning Doc Gets Released Uncut

Blu-ray Premiere by Synapse Films in the US

The documentary Stalingrad was made more than 10 years ago and shows the battle for the city from both the German and Russian perspectives. On German television, it was shown both as a 3-part and a 2-part airing by co-producing TV channel ZDF.

But obviously, the 3 episodes weren't uncut there. When aired on German TV, they each had a runtime of 45 minutes and ended up on DVD that same way. Judging from the US Blu-ray by Synapse Films, the episodes will be considerably longer (between 54 - 56 minutes each). They are explicitly described as "uncut" and as being longer than when aired on TV (probably meaning US TV). So, taking PAL speedup into account, we're most likely looking at an additional runtime of approx. 20 minutes of new material that is - at least - missing in the German versions.

Special Features:

  • High-definition presentation of the original three-part 2003 mini-series
  • English language dubbed version featuring footage not seen in the original broadcast
  • Deleted interview segments
  • Video interview with Dr. Guido Knopp (Professor and Historian)
  • Stalingrad Today Views of the City of Volgograd

The Blu-ray hits the US on December 8th, 2015. You can order it at Amazon.com.
