Worth Watching - Oct 8: Russia's Action Hero in Man of East
This is one of those fun little trailers for a movie you'll probably never see. It's for a Russian film called Man of East aka Invincible aka Nepobedimyy aka badass Russian action hero movie. This is essentially a film about Russia's version of James Bond or even John McClane - some guy named Vladimir Yepifantsev who is a huge Russian action star. I don't even really know what to say about the story in this, because it's all in Russian, but I just know that I suggest everyone check it out, as it's pretty badass. And if you're bored by the first half, don't worry, the last half picks up quite a damn bit - cars, guns, sunglasses, and all!
Watch the foreign trailer for Man of East:
Man of East is both written and directed by Oleg Pogodin, of a few previous Russian films, including The Red One: Triumph. Man of East will hit theaters in Russia starting on October 23rd, but it doesn't have a US distributor and won't be showing up over here for quite a while. The poster is featured below.
