black lightning trailer

Black Lightning may not mean much to you right now, but the film is produced by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov, and features some jaw dropping action. It’s a Russian language film that’s being compared to the likes of Transformers and Batman. Black Lightning is co-directed by Dmitriy Kiselev and Alexandr Voitinsky, who previously worked with Bekmambetov on Night Watch and Day Watch.

Here’s a brief synopsis of the film:

The film’s story centers on 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, mysterious fighter against evil.

I can’t understand anything that’s being said in this trailer, but it still looks bad ass. I can definitely see where the comparison’s between Transformers and Batman comes in, but for the sake of the film let’s hope they’re referring to Transformers 1.
