    Published on

    Heroes change, as does the world around

    In early May, we were on the set of a film in Sestroretsk near St. Petersburg. Despite the sunny weather, it is windy and chilly outside, which does not affect the mood of the actors at all. The new part of the film franchise from Bubble Studios and Studio Plus promises to surprise the audience after its premiere, but already now, at the filming stage, it surprises the leading actors. that the scope of filming, locations, action staging and the work of all departments on set exceeded their wildest expectations.

    “The locations in the film are better than we imagined. When you read the script, it seems that something incredible is waiting for you, and then you come to the set, and the scenery is even cooler,” Seteykin admits enthusiastically.

    The enthusiasm of the actor, enjoying the filming process, makes him related to his own hero – trainee Dima Dubin, who is often in Grom’s shadow. At the same time, Alexander notes that Dubin is noticeably changing in the new part of the series, growing up, without losing his youthful fascination with the profession.

    Reflecting on his character, Seteykin also admits that he would not mind if Cudgel from an ally of Thunder in the future turned into his opponent (following the development of relations between Batman and Robin).

    “Of course, I would like to play an antagonist. It seems to me that there is nothing sweeter for an actor. This is really very interesting. But, considering that the further arc of my character has long been registered, I don’t think it will be possible to play a villain with Dima Dubin. But the challenge is accepted,” he says.

    In a new way, the audience will also see the character of Tikhon Zhiznevsky, who is also pleased with the internal transformation of Grom. Those qualities of the hero, which in the first part were rather simply indicated, acquire a new volume and depth in the sequel. The Game takes place one year after Grom defeated the Plague Doctor and became a local superstar. The modest major will have to pass the test of glory, which he did not seek and for which he was not ready.

    “This character develops along with me. In the first part, it seemed to me that my hero was a little stool. In this film, he becomes more voluminous and human, acquiring new colors of character, ”says Zhiznevsky.

    At the same time, Grom is still largely a conservative and retrograde. These traits of his personality are very important in the “Game”, the events of which unfold around the confrontation between the modern and the archaic.

    “Everything changes, and he also evolves. In the first film, Thunder was only at the beginning of his formation. And he will go all his inner path of evolution for as long as we shoot. Because no one was interested in making an ideal superhero right away, we were primarily interested in it, ”said Artem Gabrelyanov, producer of the franchise and scriptwriter.

    The music responsible for original atmosphere of the series and its recognizable backdrop.

    “We always strive to add some new artists, as well as old, well-known hits, but in a new sound. In this film, we will follow the same tactics. In “The Plague Doctor” we had Choi, in “Difficult Childhood” – Alla Pugacheva. In this part, we will also surprise, ”Gabrelyanov shared.

    New heroes and villains

    In the upcoming part of the franchise, the actors of the roles of new heroes and villains have replenished. So, police lieutenant general Maria Arkhipova was played by Olga Sutulova. The actress tried on an unusual image for herself – from a burning brown-haired Sutulova turned into a sunny blonde.

    Speaking about what kind of music could best reveal the inner world of the seemingly fragile Arkhipova, Sutulova unexpectedly named Rammstein. Discussing whether her acting has changed due to the grotesque and deliberately redundant style of the film comics, Sutulova answered in the affirmative. Here, deliberate exaggeration and excess are not only allowed, but even encouraged. But it’s still important to find the right balance, ”she admitted.

    The clash of progress and conservatism will be reflected in the confrontation between Grom and the new hero of the franchise, gunsmith and technological genius August van der Holt, played by Matvey Lykov – in the past, a famous fashion model (at one time he was in the top 50 most popular male models in the world), who graduated from the International School of Film and Television in Paris, and in 2013 starred in the famous music video for the song “I Love You” by artist Woodkid.

    Holt is a Dutchman of Japanese origin with an army bearing and a mysterious bodyguard Otto (played by Andrey Trushin). It is the hero of Lykov who brings special robots to St. Petersburg, with which the local official wants to modernize the police and simplify the work of law enforcement agencies. We watched the filming of the scene with the demonstration of technical innovations on the territory of the former building of the arms factory from the time of Peter I. Thunder, who eschews technical progress, does not share bureaucratic enthusiasm and tries with all his might to prevent Holt and his robots.

    Fantasizing about who else could join the Thunder movie universe, Zhiznevsky admits that the appearance of Ivan Yankovsky in the project could greatly influence the further development of the franchise.

    At the same time, he sees an actor in the image of a positive hero: “Ivan Filippovich is an absolutely synthetic artist and could play anyone at all. I think that he would be more accustomed to playing the role of some kind of villain. But it seems to me that best of all he would play some very positive and bright superhero. ”

    Unique action

    An international team is responsible for the stunts and action shootings in The Game: action director Robert Kuhn, who also runs the Kazakhstani studio Kun-do, and Russian stuntman and actor Maxim Yakovlev (“Storm”, “1703”).

    “Stunts are dangerous, but they are performed by real stuntmen, without the use of CGI. Each action hero has a personality and unique personality that is reflected in the way they move during their stunts. This is especially noticeable in the contrast of how, for example, Thunder and his antagonists fight, for whom we came up with special plasticity and choreography of movements, ”said Yakovlev.

    of the most interesting and difficult scenes in the film, Yakovlev names the episode that was filmed in the St. Petersburg “Crosses”. In this scene, another new hero of the cinematic universe was involved – the character of stand-up comedian Evgeny Chebatkov, who has changed beyond recognition. .

    “It was a very precisely rehearsed and verified scene in which everyone clearly knew what and when he was doing. Because due to the specifics of the shooting, it was impossible to hide anything from the audience in the movements of the actors or stuntmen. I can say that jewelry work was done. And in general, what happens on the set of The Game is top-notch. We can say that here we are for the first time using tricks that have not previously been performed in domestic cinema, ”summed up Yakovlev.
