    And of course the classic Kin Dza Dza, sovjet science fiction!

  2. hardscarf says:

    Обитаемый остров could be better translated as “Liveable planet”, but IMDB calls it The Inhabited Island

    • talking beaver says:

      Neah. “Livable planet” sounds more like a planet where a life is possible. “Inhabited island” should be more correct as this is an opposite to “uninhabited planet”…

    Eto po Strugatskim tipa.

  4. hardscarf says:

    IMDB calls it ‘The Inhabited Island’ (http://imdb.com/title/tt0972558/). It will come out next year. The official website can be found here: http://www.oostrov.ru/

  5. hardscarf says:

    The movie is partly shot in Crimea and St. Petersburg and Moscow.

    It is based on similar called SF-book, which in English was translated in 1977 as Prisoners of Power

  6. sigh says:

    a movie without hot actress???

  7. talking beaver says:

    Well. I think it is not a “Populated island” but sooner an “Inhabited island”.

    There was this rather good novel by Strugackies brothers with this same name.

    Strugackies did write well. Do you agree, those who have read their stuff?

        Похерят книгу, скорее всего. На хорошую экранизацию денег не хватит. Про талант режиссёра молчу.
        I think they will spoil the book. Sci-fi isn’t the best type of film to be made in Russia.

  8. Art says:

    an excellent book i think, i re-read it recently.
    of course the movie won’t match the book, but i know that already, so no biggie ;-)

  9. ben says:

    If it has english subtitles I’ll watch it..

  10. Ipae says:

    The vans look like “A-Team” one.

  11. Texas1 says:

    Why is that man in an inflatable nylon suit?

  12. John says:

    Sounds perfect for the Sci-Fi Channel!

  13. Aleksander Sergiev says:

    They ruined that BTR-70.

  14. cyberimplant says:

    Battlefield Earth II

  15. Russian Lawyer Online says:

    Texas1 need you and sheep

  16. Nagyonkirály!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. talking beaver says:

    Agree to some of the poster in that I am afraid too that the low budget will cause dire consequences for the visual looks of the movie.

    If they are not going to add a lot of computer generated special effects (which I would not be so sure about – Night Watch used a lot of them and it was cool!) the looks will be poor.

    This has been seen in other Soviet/Post-Soviet films which would have been great but were adversely affected by the lack of funds and thus rather amateurish looking inventory.

    We can just wait and see.

    This film acts in film under the book of brothers Strugatsky “The Populated island”
    In October there should be a computer game “The Populated island”

    Genre: Adventure
    Publisher (world wide): Akella
    Developer: Step Creative Group
    Date of release in Russian Federation:2007
    CD: 2

    This game will be based on the book Inhabited Island written by Strugatsky brothers. THE ISLAND is a first-person adventure quest with panoramic environments.

    This is the age of mankind’s prosperity. FSG Pilots (Free Search Group) are exploring the universe. Our Hero – Maksim Kammerer – is forced to perform an emergency landing on the planet Sarraksh, where, a few minutes after, his ship is destroyed and he becomes a prisoner on the unknown planet.

    It turns out that there is human civilization on this planet. Its level of development is much like the level of our civilization in the 20th century. A protracted nuclear war almost completely destroyed the planet’s ecology, and the surviving population still suffers. Their painfully obtained peace remains very unstable and a loathsome truth is hidden behind it. Maksim Kammerer must break through a veil of lies to find out what it is.

    Maksim will go through military service, join rebels. He’ll do time in a penal camp and will also encounter mutants.
    The release is planned in the third quarter of 2006.
