The Company of Heroes movie has been moved up to a February 26 debut. The straight-to-DVD and Blu-ray film was previously expected to launch March 19.

Based on Relic's strategy game series (now owned by Sega), the film is skipping a theatrical release.

The Company of Heroes film may not have received much press, but it features a cast of Hollywood veterans. The film stars Tom Sizemore (Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down), Neal McDonough (Flags of Our Fathers, Captain America: The First Avenger), Chad Collins (Lake Placid 2, Sniper: Reloaded), and Jurgen Prochnow (The Da Vinci Code, Das Boot).

The World War II-set Company of Heroes follows a band of American soldiers lost behind enemy lines during the Battle of the Bulge. The squad discovers Hitler's plans to create a superbomb and fights its way through Nazi Germany to foil the Fuhrer's plot.

The next entry in the Company of Heroes series is Relic's Company of Heroes 2. It was recently delayed for quality purposes and is now expected during March 2013.
