Full Trailer For Russian Superhero Film GUARDIANS Brings On The Were-Bear!

Look, I'm not even going to pretend that the VFX in upcoming Russian superhero picture Guardians are up to Hollywood blockbuster standards. I mean, they're not horrible or anything - I'd put them around the level of a typical Chinese VFX picture - but they're not awesome. But you know what is awesome anyway? That motherf-n' badass were-bear. Yes, please, we'll have some more of that.

We've been tracking this one for a while and with what is being billed as the final trailer before theatrical release we get a much bigger look at the whole team - a woman who can turn invisible and manipulate water, a speedster with a pair of wicked curved blades, a burly dude who can manipulate electricity and stone, and the aformentioned shape shifter - in action. And it's looking pretty damn fun. Check it out below.

What's the Winter Soldier doing in this?

joeditJanuary 11, 2017 7:14 PM

Also with effects getting better I would love to see a re-boot of the Day Watch series.

cjohnstonJanuary 11, 2017 9:28 PM

p.s. --- I dig the H.ECK outta trailers that interplay and dance with the music like this..
... ..only thing this trailer's missing is a faint background serenade of "Girl From Ipanema" in the elevator.....

He *is* a russian agent! ;-)

ZetobeltJanuary 12, 2017 6:03 AM

Chinese VFX aren't up to Hollywood standard. That's OK. Because Hollywood action isn't up to chinese standards. ;-)

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 12, 2017 1:03 PM

Absolutely correct about Asian action standards. They're untouchable at this point.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 12, 2017 1:03 PM

Deep Rising is a freakin' classic.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 12, 2017 1:04 PM

I'd like to see if finished first.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 12, 2017 1:07 PM

My goodness does that look like loads of fun. I hope it gets a N.A. release.

Todd BrownJanuary 12, 2017 1:45 PM

The book series is, what? Five volumes deep now? Maybe more? Though the movies branched off pretty quick ...

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 12, 2017 1:58 PM

Aw jeez. Now see, that I wasn't fully aware of. I thought Dusk Watch was the proposed end of the trilogy. I stand corrected.

cjohnstonJanuary 12, 2017 3:43 PM

I'll ALWAYS have that tune with me when the topic is elevators.....
- - - - -
..it's actually Really weird/ironic + Funny you should mention this film, too.
~ ~ ~
i was just conversing a bit about it yesterday over on aicn: how - as you (succinctly) point out --- it STILL holds up today and is furthermore one of the B.EST thrillers (and i balance this term loosely, ..some of my other friendly competition in this, easily bleeds into a few other genres); - One of the best thrillers i have ever seen.
It's probably the creepy-best creation of a(ny) "monster" i've Ever seen, slapped into a film.
..any and all counter-examples upon this though, such as Alien; will be met with an up-vote.
not much for a whole lotta creepy cinema myself; but the only others i've caught that have really ever come anywhere close in the scare and jump departments are Enemy, Under the Skin, The Aggression Scale, A Lonely Place To Die, Starry Eyes, Open Grave, The Autopsy of Jane Doe, Borgman, The Survivalist, and Treehouse.

cjohnstonJanuary 12, 2017 3:47 PM

H.ECK, ........... ......................yesssssssssssssssssss...........
i've know it was on the map (so-to-speak); for MONTHS now..
...has been driving me NUTS ever since..

Bryant LowJanuary 13, 2017 2:31 AM

Mmmmmmm... Borscht...

Bryant LowJanuary 13, 2017 2:32 AM

It is! I just rewatched it last week. What a blast! Can't get that song out of my head...

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 13, 2017 6:59 AM

The Aggression Scale is a true favorite of mine. I've seen it a few too many times.

cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 5:21 PM

.can't right now (at work,. time is low). This evening though I'll try and forward over a couple trailers (for films.. .like - what Else would they b for.. duh.) --- that you might like.
....a few I know we've talked about, ..but I can't quite make out thru (my) mental fog if you've seen them: The Big Bang, Open Grave, and both Largo Winches in particular...
a few others + trailers.. - might be a first time introduction with said trailer(s). ----- The Survivalist, Treehouse, The Autopsy of Jane Doe,
Too Late, Frank and Lola, and Burning Bright..
..........a LOT of these are just about as wonderfully jacked up as Agg Scale.
I like to think of Scale as Home Alone on Speed..... *..and Steroids...
~ ~ ~
More l8tr, but gotta run.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 13, 2017 6:17 PM

The Big Bang. Own it, love it.
Open Grave. Own it.
Largo Winches. Own 'em.
The Survivalist. Not available to me, but I want to see it.
Treehouse. Still haven't seen it. You seem to love it, but it looks a bit meh. I'll give it a go though.
The Autopsy of Jane Doe. Can't wait to see it.

Too Late, Frank and Lola, Burning Bright. I'll need to look into these three. Can't recall them from our previous exchanges, yet they sound familiar.

I've never seen Home Alone, but I'll take your word for it. I consider The Aggression Scale a perfect little film. Yeah, my Twin Peaks alumni bias is relevant, but the flick is legit from start to finish. That Battle of Mice track at the close is most RIGHTEOUS.

cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 6:45 PM

Noted.. ...
Too Late - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt23...
..it's Sexy, Exceptionally acted and directed. Haunting - ..almost dream-like. --- a bit of a warning though. ..there's a "surprise" at the end that'll might very well knock your knees right out from under you. ..Haven't heard of anyone else (yet), who has seen it --- but, my guess is - you (generic sense) will either LOVE the ending or you'll want to throw something at the screen in utter consternation.
Frank and Lola - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt12...
Burning Bright - http://www.imdb.com/videoplaye...
if I had to speculate, I'd posit that the only thing that would stand in one's way with this adrenaline fueled film - is simply the plot.
....if nothing else. - because it's so RIDICULOUSLY Unlikely and almost copied and pasted from Wikipedia-like...

..if one can get Past that though. ...it K.ICKS.
Opinions/Tastes differ; but I'd say EVERY bit as much as Treehouse and Aggression Scale.
......and - ................while I can't guarantee this. .......don't let that trailer fool you either,. ....for this one - or for Treehouse for that matter.
..each of those trailers are a bit on the crude/rough/sloppy side and don't adequately convey what's in store for the viewer...
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
and while I'm thinking (and forgetting) about it ~ two others I forgot, that absolutely send the suspense thru the roof as well.
----- I think we've spoken about each though in the past..
A Lonely Place To Die
...if curiosity strikes, and you've not heard of (either/ ..or one of) these - lemme know and i'll ferry over some dimensions for you to glance at..

cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 6:50 PM

^ to my last two titles.... .......namely, Enemy.
i'll However put a diaper on and b a monkey's uncle if we've NOT talked about that one sometime in the past..

cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 10:17 PM

..always have that tune with me when the topic is elevators...

cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 10:18 PM


cjohnstonJanuary 13, 2017 11:17 PM

..just from your two comments here; If you are (ever) Interested - here are a basket full (or so) of film(s) of different genres which you might dig...
A Lonely Place To Die - Borgman - The Survivalist - Enemy - Renegade (Blueberry) - Trance - The Duelist (Duelyant) - Returner - Open Grave - Burning Bright - The Autopsy of Jane Doe - Starry Eyes - Kill Me Three Times - The Aggression Scale - Stretch - Too Late - The Big Bang - Blood Father - Dead Man Down - Largo Winch - Largo Winch II (the Burma conspiracy).......

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 14, 2017 8:22 AM

Oh yeah. I own Enemy. Of course I do.

ManateeAdvocateJanuary 14, 2017 8:24 AM

Yes. I do want to see Too Late. Passed on Frank & Lola for some reason. I do love Michael Shannon. Burning Bright does sound familiar. And corny.

You love to bring up A Lonely Place To Die. I do own that one thanks to you.

Ard VijnJanuary 14, 2017 2:11 PM

The first time I saw (well... heard) "Girl From Ipanema" in a film being played in an elevator, was in THE BLUES BROTHERS.

cjohnstonJanuary 14, 2017 6:07 PM

...and now - I have an admission --- I've never actually SEEN B.B in it's entirety...
*I suppose though - ALL of us might have SOME skeletons in our closet just sitting around...
