Second Trailer for Russian Sci-Fi ‘Dance to Death’
Kinodanz has unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming Russian blockbuster Dance to Death (aka Tantsy nasmert), perfect for fans of the post-apocalyptic teen dramas like The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner.
Directed by Andrey Volgin (Spiral) from a screenplay written by Andrey Zolotarev (Prizrak), the film has also direct connections to Sydney Pollack‘s 1969 feature They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?. Nothing special – copy from US and paste in Russia. I’m just kidding lol. This sci-fi dystopian movie will be released domestically on March 16, 2016.
If you’re into that sort of thing check out the second trailer for Dance to Death (no English subtitles).
Moscow, 2070s. The old energy technologies, such as oil and coal, were lost decades ago during the nuclear war. But a new technology has been developed that converts the human body directly into energy, leaving behind only a flurry of gray ashes. In a sealed bunker in the post-apocalyptic ruins of Moscow, young people struggle against each other in a deadly dancing tournament. The winners will live. The losers will be consumed for energy to power the city. One of the young people in the bunker is Kostya (Ivan Zhvakin), who was captured during a police raid and forced into the tournament. There he meets and falls in love with Anya (Lukerya Ilyashenko), the daughter of a high-ranking official who has willingly offered herself to the tournament for the sake of the city. Who will survive?
