Russia made a movie called Legend of Kolovrat this year. Knight (Voevoda) Evpaty Kolovrat was a legendary figure living Ryazan principality (just south-east of Moscow) who fought Khan Batu in 1237. I watched trailer. The movie has many special effects reminding me of video games. The legend about Voevoda Evpaty Kolovrat is a good story, the production of the movie may not be. I haven’t watched the movie. It’s in cinemas since 30the of November. don’t like movies with too many special effects. Ryazan principality probably suffered the most from Hurde invasion being geographically closest to Tatars.
Furious (Russian: Легенда о Коловрате, translit. Legenda o Kolovrate, also known as Legend of Kolovrat) is an 2017 Russian historical fantasy film about the Ryazan knight Evpaty Kolovrat, directed by Ivan Shurkhovetskiy.
Film is based on the period when Russia was under control of the Golden horde. Ryazan knight Evpaty Kolovrat is the leader of the squad, which decides to fight back khan Batu, who divided Russia. The plot is based on The Tale of the Destruction of Riazan, a medieval military tale about the capture of the city of Ryazan by the Mongols in 1237 and is one of the best sources of the Mongol invasion of Russia.
The premiere of the film in Russia is scheduled for November 30, 2017.
