Zaschitniki

Whoa! What the heck is this? Every once in a while, Russia produces a movie that actually makes the rest of the world take notice. I still can't forget that magical flying car movie a few years back (Black Lightning) known as Russia's Transformers. The next production we're curious about is a film called Zaschitniki, a Russian superhero feature about four different super-powered humans. This trailer came out in May of last year but we only just now came across it thanks to io9. It's only a teaser and they don't show too much, but it is an appealing first look, and with this early concept art for it I'm certainly intrigued. I want to see more.

Here's the first teaser trailer for Sarik Andreasyan's Zaschitniki, found on YouTube via a tip from io9:

Here's some of the concept art for Zaschitniki floating around online, showing the superhero characters:

The plot synopsis for Zaschitniki on IMDb states: "During the Cold War, an organization called 'Patriot' created a super-hero squad, which includes members of multiple soviet republics. For years, the heroes had to hide their identities, but in hard times they must show themselves again." One of the commenters on io9 identifies the various superheroes seen in this: "So we got a Werebear, a psychopath with curved swords, a telekinetic with earth element powers and some sort of super powered witch. Why can't Hollywood come up with something like this?" Indeed. The release date for the film is listed as December 2016 for Russia, likely sometime in 2017 for North America. We'll be watching out for more on this film. What do you think?
