The film now has a September 29 release moved up from its previous October date which should be good for anyone keen on what looks to be a slick, stylish period Russian period thriller.

SYNOPSIS
An adventure film, with dramatic and thriller elements set against the backdrop of palaces and the noble view of the Russian capital, The Duelist centers on Yakovlev, a retired officer, who returns to St. Petersburg from a long exile. While in the city, he fights as a duelist's representative. (Nineteenth-century Russian duel law allowed for a duelist to be replaced by any one person.) Though Yakovlev fights for money, he also seeks honor and revenge against those who disgraced him, therein, challenging the Russian Providence. Yakovlev fearlessly plays with destiny as an example of traditional romantic characters from the Russian Classics.
Pyotr Fyodorov (Stalingrad), Vladimir Mashkov (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Yuri Kolokolnikov (TV's Game of Thrones) and Martin Wuttke (Inglorious Basterds) round out the principle cast. Watch the brand new trailer right now!
