This Russian superhero film is insane! Watch the trailer for Guardians featuring a machine gun-wielding bear.
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.
Set during the Cold War, a secret organization named “Patriot” gathered a group of Soviet superheroes, altering and augmenting the DNA of four individuals, in order to defend the homeland from supernatural threats.
The group includes representatives of the different nationalities of the Soviet Union, which each one of them have long been hiding their true identity. In hard times, they settled down to business and gather to defend their homeland.
Guardians is set for release in Russia on February 2017.
