Worth Watching - June 27: Russian Forbidden Reality Trailer
As always, I love featuring new trailers for movies no one has ever heard of on the weekend. Today I've got a great new trailer for a Russian film called Forbidden Reality from our friends at Quiet Earth. In addition to Forbidden Reality, this has also gone by the names Smersh XXI and The Interceptor as well. The trailer is in Russian, unfortunately, but there's still a lot of action and a lot of badass visuals that make it worth watching anyway. I don't really know much about the story and its from a first time director, but it's a sci-fi action film that just looks awesome. With that said, I highly suggest checking this out, you might just dig it!
Watch the trailer for Forbidden Reality:
Based on the novel by popular sci-fi writer Vasiliy Golovachev, the film is about an agent who is betrayed by his partner while transporting a new psychic weapon. Believed to be dead, he escapes and takes new identity so he can live in peace. But is later forced to return to Moscow to confront a secret organization.
Forbidden Reality, aka Smersh XXI, is directed by first-time Russian filmmaker Konstantin Maximov. The screenplay was written also by first-timer Vasiliy Golovachev. This has a Russian distributor and will hit theaters there later this year, but we don't know when it'll show up anywhere else. We'll keep you updated!
