A team of four Russian heroes with altered and augmented DNA are set to save their homeland!
We previously reported back on this big blockbuster Russian film back in April when the second trailer appeared on YouTube. Now that more of the special effects are reaching completion, this new trailer gives a better look at the superhero style film that will appear in Russian cinemas early next year.
As the headline states, the film’s plot follows four Russian heroes who had their DNA altered and augmented. This change gave them great powers which they can use to defend their homeland against any supernatural threats.
The four-person team consists of Arsus, the werebear. Khan, a man who possesses incredible speed and is the master of the blade. Ler has amazing earth manipulation abilities and Xenia who can not only control water but can transform herself into the element as well.
Unfortunately it’s currently unknown when this great looking film will open up outside of Russia.
