Black Lightnin' trailer

Really don't know if this'll be something to watch out for or not, so I'm putting it out there to see what you guys make of it. And if anyone speaks Russian in here...

The folks from Twitch pointed out the full trailer for sci-fi/action flick BLACK LIGHTNING, produced by Russian sensation Timur Bekmambetov and directed by two of his usual collaborators Dmitriy Kiselev and Alexandr Voitinsky. That's probably why I can't get a word of what's being said in there. Release in Russia is set for late December, and probably in U.S. next year if it does mad business like Timur's previous 3 movies.

The footage looks really impressive for something shot on an $8M budget, but here's where it gets funky: it's about a young guy who becomes a superhero of sorts after buying an old busted car that can...fly. And gets into it with the bad guy from DAY WATCH. Looks a bit cartoonish, but... yeah, have a look and tell me what you guys think.

Extra Tidbit: Kinda has a WANTED meets Hanna-Barbera vibe, doesn't it? Still miles above MEGA SHARK vs GIANT OCTOPUS anyway. Can't believe Jim Law convinced me to watch that pile of steaming...ugh!
