If movies have taught us anything, it’s that money drives people mad. Movie after movie depicts people doing terrible things for money. Killing, kidnapping, and worse. Now take that tension between people desperate for money, shove it into a super-confined space, and push the container deep under the ocean. The result is Black Sea.
Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), Black Sea stars Jude Law as a submarine captain who is let go from his job. Desperate to make a buck, he agrees to lead a rouge mission into the depths where one of Adolf Hitler’s World War II submarines is sitting at the bottom of the ocean, reportedly filled with gold.
Black Sea, which co-stars Scoot McNairy, Ben Mendelsohn and David Threlfall, opens January 23. Check out the Black Sea trailer below. Read More »
