The first trailer for the submarine thriller Black Sea has gone online. I love submarine movies, and Kevin Macdonald‘s Black Sea has been on my (no pun intended) radar since production began over a year ago. Jude Law stars as a rogue captain who puts together a misfit crew to recover lost Nazi gold from a sunken U-boat, but the claustrophobia becomes even tighter as the crewmates turn on each other in the hope of gaining a greater share of the treasure. Judging by the trailer, this movie isn’t going to upend the genre, but it could be a great addition, especially since the cast includes not only Law, but also Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and Michael Smiley.
Hit the jump to check out the Black Sea trailer. The film opens January 23, 2015, and also stars David Threlfall, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Konstantin Khabenskiy, Sergey Kolesnikov, Sergey Puskepalis, and Jodie Whitaker.
Here’s the official synopsis for Black Sea:
A suspenseful adventure thriller directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald, 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.
