Part animated spectacular, part live-action sci-fi teen adventure, the Cosmoball trailer looks like it has it all. Well Go USA announced today that this vibrant Russian import will be debuting on digital & Blu-ray on March 23, 2021.
The visual effects on this film look amazing. This is being touted as a family-friendly action epic, and we have to agree; at least after seeing such a pretty trailer. The story seems to center around an arena sporting event that uses the titular sphere as a scoring token. Think Rollerball, but for the young adult crowd.
The film is directed by Dzhanik Fayziev, a Russian producer with quite a bit of content under his belt. He mostly produces and directs Russian television shows, but also gets behind the camera on occasion, as he did for Furious (2017), another visually striking epic.
Not since the Wachowski’s Speed Racer have we seen such eye-popping, crisp visuals as we do in the trailer for Cosmoball, which follows the synopsis.
Here’s what “Cosmoball” it’s about:
Cosmoball, directed by Dzhanik Fayziev (The Turkish Gambit, August Eighth), takes place after an intergalactic battle that destroys Earth’s moon and causes worldwide devastation, leaving the human race desolate and clinging to survival. The film follows four athletes with the rare ability to teleport, which makes them the only humans capable of playing “cosmoball,” a dangerous sport requiring unimaginable speed, reflexes, and courage. While the rest of the world religiously scans the sky to catch the high-flying tournaments, no one suspects that with each match, they are actually witnessing four young humans fighting furiously to ensure the survival of humankind.
