The ‘Coma’ Trailer Shows Off Trippy ‘Inception’-Style Sci-Fi from Russia

Planeta Inform

Take a look at the trailer for Russian sci-fi film Coma, which looks something like Inception meets Doctor Strange.

The trailer below doesn’t have English subs, but it’s visually impressive enough that we thought it would be worth a share. The plot follows an architect who suffers an accident and enters a coma. He comes back to his senses, in a way, when he finds himself in a world that resembles reality, but is actually made up of memories and recollections. He must figure out the laws of the world as he fights to get back to the “real” world.

Yep, looks like a out-there sci-fi pic with fantastic visuals; let’s hope it’s a film that will holds a  potent and well-enough written narrative to compliment the effects. There’s no release date that we could find, as yet. This is the directorial debut of Nikita Argunov, who comes from a background in visual effects (CGI Supervisor on Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan). Check out the trailer below…

Synopsis for Coma found on IMDB:

After a colossal and mysterious accident a young talented architect comes back to his senses in a very odd world that only resembles the reality. This world is based on the memories of the ones who live in it – people who are currently finding themselves in a deep coma. Human memory is spotty, chaotic and unstable. The same is the COMA – odd collection of memories and recollections – cities, glaciers and rivers can all be found in one room. All the laws of physics can be broken. The architect must find out the exact laws and regulations of COMA as he fights for his life, meets the love of his life and keeps on looking for the exit to the real world which he will have to get acquainted with all over again after the experience of COMA.
