    Greetings to everyone!

    If you are interested in Russia, especially its language and history, there is a video series to watch. Many history series about Russia - war events, rulers, crafts, trade and so on.

    Based on the Karamzin's version (authoritive russian historian - check wikipedia for additional information).

    More info in the video description -

    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.

    Russian Fantasy Film About Dragons Sets Chinese Box Office on Fire

    Russian film 'He's a Dragon," which was released in Russia in December 2015, was already an internet hit with viewers of Chinese pirate videos.


    "He's a Dragon" was the second most popular film in Chinese cinemas on Friday, making 18.35 million yuan ($2.77 million) in revenue on its first day, Russian newspaper Vedomosti reported.

    According to a bulletin of Chinese film distributors, cited by Chinese portal Cbooo.ru, on Friday the film was the most popular of the day's new releases. In a single day in China, the film made more money than its entire run at the box office in Russia and the CIS earlier this year, where it took a total of $1.87 million.

    "He's a Dragon" was a hit with Chinese internet users earlier this year, when several pirate versions of the film with Chinese subtitles appeared on the internet. One of them received 3.7 million views in just five days, Vedomosti reported.

    In February the Bazelevs studio, which produced the film, told RIA Novosti that the film's popularity came as a surprise to distributers. The dragon is an important symbol in Chinese culture, and is traditionally seen as a good omen that symbolizes success, power and good luck.

    "When we presented the film to Chinese distributors, they replied that local people are unlikely to be interested in the picture because of its plot. The dragon is portrayed as a negative character who brings evil, which fundamentally contradicts the national image," said Valeriya Dobrolyubova, head of Bazelevs sales department.

    Nevertheless, the film is on course to become the highest-grossing Russian film released in China. That title is currently held by the 2013 war film Stalingrad, which took a total of $11.8 million at the Chinese box office, and $1.7 million on its first day.

    China's highest-grossing film of all time is the Chinese–Hong Kong production The Mermaid, a whacky comedy starring Stephen Chow (of Kung Fu Hustle fame) released in February 2016. The film, which took 3.391 billion yuan ($512 million) at the Chinese box office, tells the story of a group of mermaids fighting against a property tycoon who threatens the future of their habitat. Eventually, the businessman falls in love with one of the mermaids.

    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.

    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

    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).
