Alexei Mizgirev's THE DUELIST Gets An IMAX Trailer

Since its international appear with Fedor Bondarchuk's blockbuster hit, Stalingrad, the same crew who also brought about Golden Globe winning and Academy Award-nominated Leviathan, is now looking to impress with director Alexei Mizgirev's newest, The Duelist. A trailer has been making the rounds for about a few months now since IMAX Corporation announced an October 2016 debut in Russia and select terriorities and judging by the footage, the hype isn't exactly weightless considering how immersive the trailer is from the top. It's dark, its grim, the cinematography looks sharp and very inviting.
An adventure film, with dramatic and thriller elements set against the backdrop of palaces and the noble view of the Russian capital, The Duelist centers on Yakovlev, a retired officer, who returns to St. Petersburg from a long exile. While in the city, he fights as a duelist's representative. (Nineteenth-century Russian duel law allowed for a duelist to be replaced by any one person.) Though Yakovlev fights for money, he also seeks honor and revenge against those who disgraced him, therein, challenging the Russian Providence. Yakovlev fearlessly plays with destiny as an example of traditional romantic characters from the Russian Classics.
Pyotr Fyodorov (Stalingrad), Vladimir Mashkov (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Yuri Kolokolnikov (TV's Game of Thrones) and Martin Wuttke (Inglorious Basterds) round out the principle cast. Check out the trailer below.
