Russian Invasion Trailer: The End Is Near

Fedor Bondarchuk's Attraction (2017) follows what happens after a ship from outer space crash lands on Earth. His sequel, Invasion, evidently spells doom for mankind.

Happily, Todd Brown, our site's fearless leader, wrote about Attraction back in 2016 and provided a bit of an overview of Bondarchuk's career as actor, producer and director.
