Palms, figs, creepers and crumbling facades of Moscow, dusty cars, rusty phone booth on the corner. Beside it, wrapped in colorful rags hairy merchant-a southerner. In a battered suitcase laid out the goods: a few seedy lantern, the old clock, the bubbles with strange drugs.

All this can be seen in the pavilion № 1 of «Mosfilm», where is now built the districts of Moscow 2070. After a global catastrophe, the world’s climate has changed, many of the country went under water, thousands of settlers poured into Moscow, which was in the tropical zone. No jams, no grey down jackets or sullen individuals — post-apocalyptic city looks nicer and modern.

On an area of over 3500 square meters built transforming the scenery of the streets and interiors with thousands of props created by the artists specifically for the film. In the shooting involved up to 500 actors for crowd scenes, and for each stitched a unique costume.

In the Studio costume designers was delivered 1.5 tons of items lightweight summer clothing from India. When working with images we use sophisticated prosthetics: the creation of one of the characters, Shaft, takes the artists on makeup for seven hours, the suit of silicone pads cover her whole body.

«Remember the time «Star wars» struck me in the first place a huge number of fantastic characters and their personality, — says Evgeny Mironov. — Everything was done well and efficiently, everything is thought out, each character reacted in their own way, each had its own character, facial expressions and so on. In the big Western movies are working and the average plan, and far, and you believe it all, although 90% of the images created on the computer. Here on the set of a huge staff of people who are responsible for parts to be «grown-up» that every element was functional and entertaining. This is a huge job, and I tip my hat to the filmmakers that they decided to do this».

Shooting at «Mosfilm» will last until mid-September. It is planned that the film will be released in late 2018.
