SPOTLIGHT ON MINDBLOWING RUSSIAN SUPERHERO MOVIE 'THE GUARDIANS' (ZASCHITNIKI) WITH ANTON PAMPUSHNIY, SANZHAR MADIEV, ALINA LANINA, SEBASTIAN SISAK GRIGORYAN

'GUARDIANS' ZASCHITNIKI 
FIRST RUSSIAN SUPERHERO FILM
Now, who says them superheroes can be found only in Hollywood? Some of them are soon to appear in Mother Russia where only this summer they finished shooting highly expensive superhero movie THE GUARD- IANS (aka ZASCHI- TNIKI) directed by Armenian director Sarik Andreasyan! Set during the Cold War a Secret organization named "Patriot" gathered a group of Russian superheroes in order to defend the homeland from supernatural threats. It includes representatives of the different nationalities of the Soviet Union, which each one of them have long been hiding their true identity! The $20 million movie is out December 2016!

THE WILDMAN
Russian star Anton Pampushniy will play Arsus, Wildman, a form of berserker or werebear, who has the ability to transform himself into a bear, though he can control how much of his body is transformed and can transform partially if he wills it. Superstrong, loyal and determined, he "breaks the enemy into small pieces".

THE WINDMAN
Russian star Sanzhar Madiev plays Khan the Windman. Masterfully skilled with all kinds of knives, and specialized with many kinds of martial arts. He is primarily armed with twin, crescent blades with the efficiency to cut clean through thick fabric, as well as human tissue and bone, without any difficulty, often allowing him to kill instantly with one swing of his weapon.

THE LANDMAN
Playing Ler or Landman is Sebastian Sisak Grigoryan. He is armed with all forms of earth manipulation abilities, such as seismokinesis, terrakinesis and geokinesis, which make him a form of earth bender. He is able to control stones and soil, collect dust from boulders, stop falling rocks, and move mountains.

THE WATERWOMAN
 Xenia Waterwoman is played by Alina Lanina. Flexible and agile, she has the ability to move on water as if it is like solid ground, as well as seamlessly move through it. This gives her higher mobility in water than the fastest, or most manoeuvrable sea creature. She cannot feel temperature differences, but can survive in any vacuum, even without oxygen, which allows her to survive underwater without any negative effects. Check out the mindblowing teaser below:

  1. I do believe I am the first to arrive darling.

    Now this is intriguing and the trailer looked good. Nice job with the special effects.

    Since this is about Russian superheroes, one must wonder how they will sneak a shot of Putin not wearing a shirt in there :0)

    2. Anushka,,,,I like that darling.

      I'm pretty sure Putin could take Godzilla, bare handed and bare chested in the middle of a frozen dessert whilst being shot at by aliens. He's my hero. what a man :0)

    3. It is interesting that Slavic languages have many ways of softening the names, and saying them lovingly.. we also have tons of words for all family members and relations... and yet, Americans are trying to portray them as ville creatures :(

      Did you see how Putya is taking care of ISIS with his bombers? The same ISIS that Obama created?

  2. The trailer is cool looking, but I didn't get a sense of the film from it. I got more from your run down of characters.
