"I swear… I shall take back everything you left for me!" Kick his ass! Well Go USA has released an official trailer for a historical epic titled The Legend of Tomiris, an extension of the original title Tomiris. As the title indicates, the film tells the story of the life of the great queen of of the steppe - legendary Tomiris. She is destined to become a skillful warrior, survive the loss of close people and unite the Scythian/Saka tribes under her authority. She is an iconic individual in Asian history, and is the namesake of the modern name Tomris. The Kazakh film stars Almira Tursyn as the iconic Tomiris, with Adil Akhmetov, Erkebulan Dairov, Berik Aytzhanov, Satybaldy Azamat, Aizhan Lighg, and Ghassan Massoud. This actually looks great! Some solid action footage and authentic storytelling, might be worth a watch after all. That final shot where she stares down this man with a "don't you dare" look is badass! Whoa. Don't mess with Tomiris.
