Trailer: Black Sea

Give me a solid old-school adventure like Black Sea over your latest effects-pumped Marvel superhero epic any day. Directed by Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void, The Last King of Scotland), this submarine flick is a rarity these days: a mid-budget action-thriller emphasising performances and strong character work, hinging on a tense real-world/working-class type scenario. Jude Law's accent is a bit suspect, but the film has received some encouraging reviews so far: Empire says it's a "superbly shot men-on-a-mission thriller with chest-tightening tension and a striking contemporary resonance", and Time Out London: "its blend of old-fashioned storytelling values and zeitgeisty relevance make it a worthy addition to sub-aquatic cinema's nerve-juddering legacy." We're looking to secure a couple of screenings in March - fingers crossed! In the meantime, get your palms clammy with the trailer below:
