Russian Cult SciFi Comedy KIN DZA DZA Gets An Animated Remake

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Released in 1986, as the Soviet Union was approaching the end of its run, Georgiy Daneliya's Kin Dza Dza become something of a cult phenomenon. A scifi comedy that catapults an odd couple - a construction worker and a music student - to a far off planet the film has a large and loyal following thanks to its clever comedy and slyly satiric elements. It's a film that's never really gone away and now it's coming back in animated form.

An animated version of the same tale titled Ku! Kin Dza Dza! (Ку! Кин-дза-дза) is scheduled for a summer 2013 release and the first trailer has arrived online. Though there are no subtitles the story is simple enough to follow - the human protagonists foolishly fiddle with an alien transportation device and are flung to a far off planet from which they have to try and find their way home - that you shouldn't have any real problems. Check it below.
