Forget werewolves. Upcoming Russian action movie “Guardians” features a werebear superhero as part of a team of superhumans. Here is the final trailer.
You’re going to want to see this amazing trailer for Guardians Soviet Union Superheroes. The Russian film industry wants to replicate the success of Marvel’s Avengers by creating their own superheroes. If Guardians is anything to go by, they are not too far away from world domination. Surprisingly, the VFX aren’t half bad either.
A mysterious supervillain (who looks a lot like Bane from”The Dark Knight Rises”) is assaulting Moscow and a team of mutant superhumans created during the Cold War are the only ones who can stop the damage. There’s a martial-arts specialist, a dude who can build a boulder collection on his body, an acrobatic woman who manipulates water, and, best of all, a man-bear.
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.
The film opens in Russia in February, but its availability to the rest of the world is still unknown. Guardians is directed by Sarik Andreasyan, who directed last year’s indie thriller American Crime starring Hayden Christensen, Adrien Brody and Jordana Brewster, from a script by Andrey Gavrilov.
