There isn’t much treasure hunting movie these days but you can leave it to Jude Law to deviate from the norm as he stars in the suspense drama “Black Sea” directed by Oscar-winning helmsman Kevin Macdonald. Read on to know more about this latest film.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. From Focus Features comes a film that is centered on desperation – for money and some air. It gets more ignited with sheer hope and an intense bargain. Jude Law turns on his Scottish Accent as he stars in the suspense drama, “Black Sea.” Helmed by award-winning director Kevin Macdonald, the movie is centered on a submarine that is filled with half Russian and half British men pursuing an old Nazi U – boat that is filled with $182 million worth of gold. Jude Law plays as a captain who heads the treasure hunting group.
Looking at the trailer, it’s very much sensible that desperate times will resolve to desperate measures but we all know that when things get too desperate, they get too awry on the next. Seasoned and frustrated, Captain Robinson (Law) has been working with submarines for most of his life. He lost his family for it and it was the only thing he has left. When he got laid off by the company he was working for, he comes at a loss and stumbles upon nothingness for the remaining of his life. It is then that he got an offer to man and head a submarine journey set to pursue a boat filled with fortune and will hopefully, offer him a redemption on his life that had gone astray. But then again, when things went below the surface and when oxygen thins, it’s only a matter of time before trouble sets in and for greed to overcome the entire crew.
“Black Sea” is speculated to be a hit according to Deadline as they reviewed the historical Box Office results of films that fall under the submarine subgenre. Apart from brewing on to that fact, dramas that are attached to submarines have always been a hit and crowd pleaser. The film also carries the right kind of riveting formula: a crew of mixed Russians and British men, a diver who is both a necessity and a liability to the crew and the premise of mutiny. It will open in theaters early next year on Jan. 23, 2015.
