System of a Down’s Serj Tankian Scored a Russian Action Movie; Watch the Trailer Here
While we’ve all been waiting like schmucks for a new System of a Down album, Serj Tankian has kept busy by getting into the film scoring game. Interestingly, Tankian has been composing for movies for a couple of years now, and it seems like most of us never even noticed: he scored the Armenian films 1915 and The Last Inhabitant in 2015 and 2016, and now he’s done the music for a movie which is either called Furious-The Legend of Kolovrat or just plain Furious, depending on who you ask. The project represents a big leap for Tankian, because it’s Russian, not Armenian. So, Serj has made his way north and perhaps slightly west. He’ll get to Hollywood in due time.
Here’s a description of the movie…
“A story of a legendary battle, where seventeen fearless warriors defend their land against an army of thousands well-trained soldiers. In 13th-century Mongol warrior hordes and their leader, Batu Khan, control most of the known world. As the Mongols move towards Europe they invade the last Russian principality standing in their way. Little do they know, their plans are about to be ruined by a small detachment of heroic strong men led by a mysterious brave warrior. This is a story about courage, endurance and self-sacrifice for the sake of one’s country. This is the story of Evpaty the Furious.”
…and here’s a trailer:
So that looks like drek. But who knows, maybe it’ll be good. Bad trailers do happen to good movies sometimes.
