Marvel Studios has all but perfected the superhero team dynamic with its "Avengers" movies, but there's no reason someone else can't take a crack at the formula. As it turns out, that someone else is Sarik Andreasyan, director of the upcoming Russian superhero action movie "Guardians."
We previously covered the first "Guardians" teaser trailer, which offered an initial look at the Man-Bear. Now he's back, on full, chain gun-toting display in this latest trailer, along with the rest of his super squad. The conflict in the film seems to stem from a sudden military uprising that includes among its ranks sentient artillery, mutants and spider mechs. A military official is tasked with assembling a team of super-powered individuals to defend the world against this attack.
The official synopsis follows:
During the Cold War, an organization called "Patriot" created a super-hero squad, which includes members of multiple soviet republics. For years, the heroes had to hide their identities, but in hard times they must show themselves again.
That team consists of Ler, with the power to telepathically move rocks; Khan, a master swordsman who can teleport; Arsus, a man who can transform into a man-bear; and Kseniya, who seems to be able to render herself invisible. If you're on the fence, watch until the end of the trailer when Arsus gets his super-suit. You'll know if you're in or out.
There are currently two trailers for the film available, one in Russian and one with English audio dubbed in. There doesn't seem to be a subtitled version available at the moment.

"Guardians" is is currently slated for release in Russia on February 23, 2017. No U.S. release has been announced.
