I’ve always been a huge fan of alien invasion movies (Independence Day, Edge of Tomorrow), so it was with a great deal of interest that I saw that Stalingrad helmer Fedor Bondarchuk’s next film would be dealing with said subject matter. Although it seems there have been a couple of trailers released before, this new trailer for Attraction is the first I’ve seen of the Russian movie and you can have a look below.

The movie will be released in Russia on Jan. 26, 2017, and stars Oleg Menshikov (Legend No. 17), Alexander Petrov (Mystic Game), relative newcomer Irina Starshenbaum and Rinal Mukhameto (Tri mushketera, aka The Three Musketeers). The storyline centers on an alien spacecraft (that looks an awful lot like the Death Star, by the way) that crash-lands over Moscow, with the humans taking up arms against the aliens when they (the humans) demand they leave Earth.

Much like the Soviet superhero movie Guardians, which is set to be released in Russia on Feb. 23 and later in the year in North America, Attraction looks really, really pretty, with some nice special effects to boot. Check it out below and let us know what you guys think. Oh, and since the trailer is in Russian, be sure to click on the CC box to see the English closed caption.
