Company of Heroes movie moved up
Straight-to-DVD and Blu-ray World War II film based on Relic's game series starring Tom Sizemore and Neal McDonough arriving February 26.
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.
