Sweet Trailer…’Black Sea’

Black Sea HeaderJude Law wowed film fans this year in Dom Hemingway, Richard Shepard’s hilarious story about a retired safe-cracker. It really was the role of a lifetime for Law (check out our review here). But now, his next film finds him playing a character just as complex only far less animated. In Black Sea, Law plays a rogue submarine captain who, with a crew as reckless as he, is searching the depths of the titular Black Sea for sunken treasure. Sounds good to us, but if you’re not convinced, have a look at the first trailer below…

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.

Black Sea is directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland, The Eagle) from a script by Dennis Kelly. It stars Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn, and David Threlfall. Focus Features has slated the film for release this Winter on January 23th, 2015.
