Official Trailer for 'Sobibor' About a Soviet Escaping from a Nazi Camp

"We'll never forgive them again." Samuel Goldwyn Films has debuted an official trailer for the true story World War II survival thriller Sobibor, about the revolt and escape at the concentration camp known as Sobibór in Poland. The story goes that, after only three weeks imprisoned at this Nazi death camp in Poland in 1943, Soviet Officer Alexander Pechersky organized a mass revolt and prison break, successfully escaping and helping many of the other prisoners escape as well. Many of the escapees were later caught and died - but the rest, led by Pechersky, eventually joined the resistance. The film stars Konstantin Khabenskiy as Pechersky, who is also making his directorial debut on this film, with a full cast including Christopher Lambert, Mariya Kozhevnikova, Michalina Olszanska, Philippe Reinhardt, Maximilian Dirr, Mindaugas Papinigis, and Wolfgang Cerny.

Movie Review – The Perfect Husband (2014)

The Perfect Husband, 2014.

Directed by Lucas Pavetto.

Starring Gabriella Wright, Bret Roberts, Tania Bambaci, Carl Wharton, Philippe Reinhardt, and Daniel Vivian.


A young married couple attempt to recover from a past trauma by taking a weekend trip away to a remote cabin but it seems that they cannot escape the demons of the past as paranoia descends into carnage.

The film begins with Viola (Gabrielle Wright) and her husband Nicola (Bret Roberts) packing for their idyllic trip to the countryside but all the while bickering over past issues. It’s a tense opening act with an emotionally distant Nicola dismissing many of Viola’s concerns, and Viola expressing through her body language a discomfort about this trip and of Nicola’s behaviour. This notion soon dissipates when they drive towards the cabin when it becomes abundantly clear that these were not character traits, but poor acting choices.

Russia-Ukraine tension impacts industries
Russian culture secretary calls collaboration “frozen” as industries strive to continue cross-border production.

The ongoing political tension between Russia and Ukraine was not forgotten during this week’s Moscow International Film Festival (Miff), which ends tomorrow (Friday).

At a meeting with representatives of two new Russian films Battle for Sevastopol and The Territory, Russian Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky described collaboration between the Russian and Ukrainian film industries as currently being ¨frozen¨.

Signs of the instability were evident in the nationalities of some titles at the festival, including Sergey Mokritskiy’s Russian box office success Battle for Sevastopol [$8m (Rub 435m) since April 2], which had initially been made as a Russian-Ukrainian co-production.

The International Competition included world premieres of Alexander Mindadze’s Russian-uk-German co-production My Good Hans, which was largely shot on location in Ukraine’s Nikopol and had originally had a Ukrainian co-producer on board.

Other films to have shot in Ukraine and screen at the festival included Andrey Proshkin’s Orleans

Full International Trailer For Russia’s Epic ‘Stalingrad’

Fedor Bondarchuk’s Stalingrad, Russia’s official entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar, broke records earlier this month when it played in China. As Russia’s first film shot in 3D and IMAX, it is, like Ron Burgundy, kind of a big deal. Now, Sony has released the first full international trailer so audiences everywhere can get their first look at what the fuss is all about.

Based on the bloody battle for the city of Stalingrad during WWII, the film tells the story of a small group of Soviet soldiers who survive a disastrous operation against the Nazis. Moving away from many action-oriented war films, Stalingrad focuses on the emotions of these six men and even takes on a romantic element when they discover a girl taking refuge in an abandoned house.

Check out the incredible trailer (it’s worth it, there’s fire and guns and a
