Hey, who wants to see a giant bear with a gatling gun? The answer is: everyone.
A trailer for the Russian-made movie Guardians has been lighting up the internet in the past few days, drawing comparisons to 2012’s The Avengers in regards to sheer, eyeball-widening superhero action. The plot is terrifically simple. A machine army is attacking a present-day Soviet Union (according to the press materials, although the trailer says differently!) and the government has mere days to assemble disparate Soviet/Russian superheroes into a fighting force the likes the world has never…I’m sorry I can’t hold it in anymore…THEIR HULK TURNS INTO A GIANT BEAR AND IT’S ALL I’VE EVER WANTED.
Guardians releases on February 23, 2017 in Russia and there is talk that a dubbed version may make it to the U.S. later in 2017. The film is directed by Sarik Andreasyan, and is already slated for a sequel.
