I can tell this is a movie that has come out of nowhere because I cannot even find it listed on IMDB.
"Black Lightning" is a Russian film produced by "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov. The film is about a Moscow University student who becomes the owner of a flying car. Not only will he be able to avoid traffic, but he unexpectedly finds himself the city's defender against evil.
Timur apparently said at one point that this is the "Russian response [to] Transformers and Batman," which means this should be very interesting to see. Now thanks to Quiet Earth the first full-length trailer has arrived, unfortunately in Russian. But damn is it intense and looks great, especially for a Russian feature.
Flying car battles? I'm there.
"Black Lightning" will hit theaters in Russia on December 31, but doesn't have a US distributor yet. Hopefully it will make its way to the states sometime next year if an American distributor picks it up.
The trailer has been taken down. The teaser trailer is still online and you can watch it below. It is nowhere near as awesome as the real trailer though. To watch the official trailer, head here (I can't embed the video on this site).
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
