    Russian adaptation of ‘Game of Thrones’ inspired by Romanov dynasty — filmmakers

    A full-screen feature film will be released before the TV series in late 2017

    MOSCOW, February 8. /TASS/. The Russian analogue of ‘Game of Thrones’ fantasy TV series will feature the history of the House of Romanov which reigned in the country for more than 300 years, the head of the Russian Film Group said on Monday.

    "The Golden Age historical project may be called an analogue to ‘Game of Thrones," said Alexey Petrukhin. "We have studied this project’s business model, had many contacts with ‘Game of Thrones’ makers. We will also have several cameramen and directors responsible for different families and characters."

    The project will consist of 12 seasons with 12 episodes in each, starting from the Time of Troubles period between 1598 and 1613, when the Romanov dynasty came to power.

    A full-screen feature film will be released before the TV series in late 2017. The first season of the TV project will be launched in early 2018.

    The Bridge: new version to span Russia and Estonia

    It will star Russian actor Mikhail Porechenkov as an investigator from the eastern side of the border and Lithuania’s Ingeborga Dapkūnaitė as his Estonian counterpart, playing the role made famous by Sofia Helin as Saga Norén..................

    Nice to see Russian films catching up in all the CGI eye candy to Hollywood. Hollywood needs some competition and movies
    are a good "soft power" element. Hopefully Russian movies will have more intelligent plots.

    I dream of seeing a movie that is reference to the STALKER games. Hope the Russian film industry tries it someday.

    In my experience intelligent plots are opposite of soft power.

    Otherwise how do you explain Rambo 2 & 3, Rocky 4 or Top Gun? Very Happy

    Although in all fairness Top Gun is damn fun movie but I think reasons for that solely music and F-14. music

    Real Life "Hunger Games" Show to be Produced in Russia

    Post  Odin of Ossetia on Tue Mar 14, 2017 9:17 pm

    15 men and 15 women from various countries on an island in Siberia.

    Rape, murder and anything else will be permitted.


    There will be even, later in the show, a "hunt" for escaped prison inmates.


    Those who want to participate have to pay to be on that show. Should it not be the other way around? However, the show's winner will get $1.7 million prize.

    I would never pay to get on a show like that.

    I googled "siberiantimes", google suggested "fake news", there must be a reason for that. Anything that ends with "times" does not look Siberian or Russian to me.

    I thought anyone with basic level of intelligence would do some research before believing in this joke like BS and I did.

    So the show is about building yourself a house in Siberia and stay through winter. We all know in the old time when people immigrated to Siberia (sometimes by force), they usually arrived in Spring, so they'd build themselves a house before winter came. There wasn't much help around so each family was all by themselves. If they couldn't finish the house in time, they would die for the obvious reason. many people, I assume those from cities without much experiences in house building, did die there, it was part of the punishment given to them.

    So the producer of the show are going to see modern people, if they'd live through and beat their ancestors in survival skills. So it is a very RUSSIAN thing, it has nothing to do with "hunger games" or other Hollywood rubbish.

    In terms of rape and murder. The TV crew would watch these players remotely by CCTV. But they have no law enforcement themselves. They have no permanent police presence at the set. So if they see players conducting illegal activities, such as "rape and murder", they have no meanings to get involved immediately (if involved at all). They have to report to the police. Then the cops would come and arrest whoever responsible. So the TV producer let everyone sign acknowledgement of this fact. That, say if some rapes you, do not blame the TV crew and sue the TV company for compensations.

    Does it make sense now ?? How can "rape and murder" be allowed by a TV producer in any country?? let alone Russia, a country which is "supposed to be a police / totalitarian state".

    Putin views Salyut-7 movie, meets with celebrated astronauts Dzhanibekov and Savinykh

    On the eve of the 60th anniversary of the launching of the 1st artificial Earth satellite, Putin watched a new film dedicated to one of the most difficult space missions in the history of cosmonautics

    MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin met with the creators of the Salyut-7 movie and with astronauts Vladimir Dzhanibekov and Viktor Savinykh late Tuesday evening, who flew to the film’s eponymous orbital station back in 1985.

    Together with them, on the eve of the 60th anniversary of the launching of the first artificial Earth satellite by the Soviet Union, the head of state watched a new film dedicated to one of the most difficult space missions in the history of cosmonautics, the Kremlin reported on its website.

    The movie screening was attended by astronaut Oleg Skripochka, Roscosmos space agency CEO Igor Komarov, daughter of the world’s first man in space Yuri Gagarin, Yelena, along with film producers Anton Zlatopolsky, Sergey Selyanov and Bakur Bakuradze.

    The 3D motion picture, Salyut-7, directed by Klim Shipenko is based on the story of Dzhanibekov’s and Savinykh’s flight to the Salyut-7 space station. After contact with the station was lost, the cosmonauts were able to dock to the station manually, revitalize the power supply system and brought Salyut-7 back to normal operation.

    The movie’s premiere across Russia will take place on October 12.

    This could be potentially interesting.
    I'm a bit puzzled though.
    Game of Thrones is set in Medieval Europe.
    So things like witches, dragons, magic etc kind of work.
    I wonder if the Russian version is too late historically for that sort of stuff?

    I think it would be cool if they added in all sorts of Slavic legend. Magic, monsters etc etc and all the foreign forces like the Mongols, mystic Chinese, Arabs etc.

    On an unrelated thing, has anyone watched Londongrad? Do they recommend it.
    (Its a series about Russians set in London).
