Upcoming WW2 Movies
Contributor: C. Peter Chen
Two WW2 films are being released this year.
The first is Defiance, produced by Ed Zwick of Glory, Last Samurai, and Blood Diamond. The premise of the movie is set around three Jewish Poles who joined an underground resistance movement against the German occupiers. They organized a group that eventually reached 1,200 in size and hid in a village deep in the woods. This movie is scheduled to hit the theaters in the United States in Dec 2008, so there is still a bit of waiting time.
The second movie I just came across is Tali-Ihantala 1944, which actually has already been released in Finland. It is a Finnish movie about the Battle of Tali-Ihantala fought between Finland and Russia, with the Germans holding a major role as allies to the Finns. Looking at the trailer, it appears exciting. I hope I will be able to enjoy this in the United States some time in the future.

With mini-series The Pacific also on horizon for 2009, the upcoming two years are looking to be rather entertaining on screens large and small.
