"I live to fight." Well Go USA has revealed the a new official US trailer for The Pilot, originally known as Лётчик (Letchik) in Russian. This opened in Russia last December, and is one of three new Russian movies from the last few years made about pilots during World War II surviving after crash landing. We posted the trailer for V2 Escape from Hell last year. December of 1941, Northwestern Front. During a mission to stop the enemy advance, Nikolai Komlev's IL-2 is shot down. Komlev manages to crash-land his plane. He's alive, but far from friendly territory. Ahead of him is a relentless trial of severe physical and mental endurance. After battling hunger and extreme cold, evading packs of wolves and detachments of Nazi soldiers out to find him, the wounded Komlev finally nears the homefront. Pyotr Fyodorov stars as Komlev, with Anna Peskova, Pavel Osadchy, Maksim Emelyanov, and Nikoloz Paikridze. Another action packed story about how heroic it is to fight for your country. They never stop making these films, all about that heroism.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Renat Davletyarov's The Pilot, direct from YouTube:
Based on a true story: in 1941, a Russian WWII pilot named Nikolai Komlev (Pyotr Fyodorov) crash-lands deep in enemy territory. Seriously injured, he must battle hunger, extreme cold, and wild animals—all while evading Nazi soldiers—if he is ever to make it home alive. But there he faces another challenge, the most life-changing of them all. The Pilot, also known as The Pilot: A Battle for Survival or originally titled Лётчик (Letchik) in Russian, is directed by Russian filmmaker Renat Davletyarov, director of the films We Are Family, Steel Butterfly, The Dawns Here Are Quiet, Odnazhdy, Mortal Affair, and also Donbass Okraina previously. An English dub was directed by Cindy Robinson. The screenplay is written by Sergey Ashkenazi, Renat Davletyarov, and Alexey Timoshkin. This originally opened in Russia in December of 2021 just a few months ago. Well Go USA will now release Davletyarov's The Pilot in select US theaters + on VOD starting March 1st, 2022 coming soon this winter. For more info, visit their official site. Who's interested?
