Attraction Trailer

Whoa! This looks cool. A new teaser trailer has debuted for a Russian alien invasion/arrival movie called Attraction. We've also added the original teaser along with the new trailer, since this is the first time we've encountered this film. There's some awesome footage in this, mainly the original arrival and crash in a city. The ship design is incredibly unique, and I love the way it looks as it crashes down. The film stars Oleg Menshikov, Alexander Petrov, Rinal Mukhametov and Irina Starshenbaum. It's made by the same guy who made Stalingrad and will be presented in IMAX 3D (at least in Russia) when it opens. The newest teaser actually reveals the aliens, which are huge creatures without a discernible face, making me even more intrigued. Along with Guardians, there are some impressive action movies coming out of Russia these days.

Here's the first two teaser trailers (+ poster) for Fedor Bondarchuk's Attraction, direct from YouTube:

After an alien ship crash lands onto a Russian city, many who have saw the inside and the occupants start to question their own existence while there are those who demand the aliens to leave Earth. "With this film, we want to give audiences a chance to erase all borders of perception and to immerse completely into the story as only seen through the IMAX Experience" (via IMAX press release). Attraction, or Prityazhenie (Притяжение) in Russian, is directed by Russian actor-turned-filmmaker Fedor Bondarchuk, of the films The Inhabited Island 1 & 2 and the international hit Stalingrad previously. Attraction is scheduled for release in Russia in IMAX 3D starting January 26th, 2017 but doesn't have any official US release date or info yet. We expect it to arrive sometime late 2017. Stay tuned for updates. Who's looking forward to this?

The way the image shakes doesn't make sense.

You mean when he's holding the phone? I thought so too

David Diaz on Sep 30, 2016


Yep. It's obvious he's holding a steadycam someone else is shaking

Serious competition to Michael Bay's dumbness.

The poster seems like anti-immigrant propaganda.

Carpola on Sep 30, 2016


;D so true...

Better creature and ship design than a lot of Hollywood films. And I'm down with Russian Matt Damon haha.

Jon Odishaw on Sep 30, 2016


Indeed, but will it have better screenplay?

tarek on Sep 30, 2016


Matt Damon?!? hahahaha!!!

There's loads of really good concept guys from Russia I've noticed over the last few years. 🙂

Russians are masters of sf. I always liked their writers, brothers Strugatsky especially. Their books like Hard to be a God, Roadside Picnic, Dead Mountaineer's Hotel and many more are very interesting and exquisite ...

Cheers for those titles man, I'll look them up.

Carpola on Oct 3, 2016


Glad to give you a hint for something good. Not usual sf, or, if I am allowed to say, not some action sf. They have a lot of good books. And are sometimes a bit dark. But good, definitely ... And for some good measure, and if you haven't heard of, there's also a good sf American trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson about Mars called Red Mars, Green Mars and Blue Mars. Don't be fooled by Mars part in title, it's a good story about the future of human society. Highly recommended. Cheers ...

Way better trailer and effects than that Guardians one

David Diaz on Sep 30, 2016


This might sound harsh, but this looks like Americans got competition in making stupid and expensive sf films ...

shiboleth on Sep 30, 2016


not harsh - but the comment seems completely subjective and irrelevant.

dan on Oct 2, 2016


Well, everything about commenting the films is extremely objective, huh? But I have no problem with that, things about art, culture and aesthetics are best when they are subjective. That's the only way to know the objective truth about those things. I see that everyday on many film sites, including this one. Come on, let's not be shy about it ...

I takes time and a lot of introspection to realize that people could like what we dislike and vice versa... ;D

tarek on Oct 3, 2016


True, should be natural situation for everybody...

shiboleth on Oct 3, 2016


Looks well made and it's my favorite genre, so i will give it a go...

ari smulders on Sep 30, 2016


I'll gladly see this in the U.S. with English subtitles... this looks really good.
