The first trailer and poster for the period submarine thriller Phantom have been released online. The film stars Ed Harris as the captain of a Cold War Soviet submarine who, after being rushed into a classified mission, discovers that his submarine is being taken over by a rogue KGB group. David Duchovny plays the leader of the KGB group, and this trailer looks like it may just give away the entire plot of the film. We haven’t seen a good submarine thriller in quite a long time, so here’s hoping Phantom delivers.
