Focus Features has released the official trailer for its new deep water adventure thriller BLACK SEA. Starring Academy Award nominee Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and David Threlfall with THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND’S Kevin Macdonald at the helm.
BLACK SEA is described as follows:
“A suspenseful adventure thriller centering on a rogue submarine captain (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.”
The trailer starts off setting up the high stakes in the film, Captain Robinson (Jude Law) has just been laid off and has lost his family to a job he spent 13 years of his life doing. Looking for a way to make money and to make good with his former employers, he is told about a sunken treasure, one of Hitlers boats is rumored to be sitting at the bottom of the sea and it’s full of gold. He must put together a crew to go underwater, their mission: to bring back the gold. But their already difficult plan starts to go south when the men start to realize the less people aboard the vessel, the less ways they have to split the money. What starts off as treasure hunt, ends up becoming a fight for survival.
The action looks intense no doubt to the extreme close shots showing just how tight the quarters are on this vessel. Jude Law who was last seen in THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL looks absolutely menacing by the end of the trailer. This exciting, claustrophobic, ticking time bomb, underwater thriller hits theatres January 23, 2015.
