Russia is getting into the superhero film craze with Zaschitniki. A trailer for the film came out in the fall of 2015, and it looks like amazing fun. The film is due out later this year, and we can’t wait to see it.
The film is set in an alternate Soviet Union, following a group culled from the various satellite countries within the USSR and turned into superheroes. Their goal? Protect the USSR from supernatural threats.
There’s some concept art floating around the internet, which gives a good look at some of the heroes:
There’s also an official Instagram which has been posting up some behind the scenes video and official images:
Bottom line? This film looks awesome and we can’t wait until it comes out sometime later this year.
