New Trailer for Russia’s Superhero Movie ‘Guardians’

Russia's Superhero Movie

A new four-minute trailer for director Sarik Andreasyan’s Russian superhero movie Guardians, or Zashchitniki, is online.

The film was made with a 5 million USD budget, but it promises to be one hell of a wild ride. And while the CGI is not on par with Marvel movies, it’s clear great things can be accomplished with substantially less money.

Featuring actors Anton Pampushnyy, Sanzhar Madiyev, Sebastien Sisak, Alina Lanina and Stanislav Shirin, this “Russian Avengers” film has a February 23, 2017 release in Russia with UK and US release dates yet to be announced.

The film tells the story of a secret team of heroes created to protect the Soviet Union during the Cold War, disbanded after its fall, and are now called back in for a new threat. Check out the U.S. trailer for Guardians:

The film comes from Russian production company Turbo Films and already has a sequel in the works. I look forward to it.

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.
