Guardians – Watch the teaser for new Russian superhero film



Superhero films are all the rage and, on the whole, they are box office hits (Fantastic Four I am looking at you). As time goes by we are seeing a more varied take on the world of Superheroes. Russia are now joining the pack as they have a new film, Zashchitniki (aka Guardians), directed by Saric Andreasyan heading our way.

This is looking like a dark and gritty take on the genre. Nothing new there, but there are hints of something more in this one. Too early to tell on whether it will work, but it certainly looks interesting.

During the Cold War, a secret organization “Patriot” has created a squad of superheroes, which included participants from various Soviet republics. For years, the heroes had to hide their identity, but in hard times, they again take the case.

The film stars Anton Pampushny, Sanjar Madiev, Sebastian Sisak, Alina Lanina, Stanislav Shirin, Valery Shkirando, Vyacheslav Razbegaev, Alexander Semenov, and Vladimir Butenko.
