Trailer: Black Lightning

This film produced by Timur Bekmambetov - the hotshot Russian director behind Night Watch and Day Watch (and also, unfortunately Wanted) - looks pretty darn ridiculous, but man I'm getting a buzz off it. Maybe it's that '80s vibe that seems to be written all over the trailer (you can easily imagine Back to the Future-era Michael J. Fox in the car seat), and besides it's been a while since we've had a good movie about a FLYING CAR! And it's not just some flying car, it's a Volga sedan - love that it's an old vehicle, not some flashy Initial D. machine. I'm not too sure about plot details since the trailer's in Russian, but I think it'd be safe to say that it's about a young guy-turned-crime-fighter-with-a-flying-car. Bekmambetov has been quoted as saying that it's "Russia's reponse to Transformers and Batman".
