Jude Law hunts for Hitler’s gold in ‘Black Sea’ trailer – watch

Submarine thriller from 'Marley' director Kevin Macdonald in cinemas December 5

Jude Law dives the depths of the ocean on a quest to find sunken treasure in the first trailer for thriller Black Sea.

Kevin Macdonald, the Oscar-winning director of Bob Marley documentary Marley and The Last King of Scotland, casts Law as a rogue submarine captain who brings together a crew of misfits for a dangerous treasure hunt seeking Nazi gold worth $182m. They’re after a haul of gold bars thought to be lost at the bottom of the sea in one of Hitler’s old U-boats.

The film’s synopsis has revealed: “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.”

Also starring Scoot McNairy (Monsters), Ben Mendelsohn (The Place Beyond the Pines) and Michael Smiley (Kill List), Black Sea is in cinemas December 5.

Jude Law has been twice Oscar-nominated for Cold Mountain and The Talented Mr. Ripley. The actor, who plays Watson alongside Robert Downey Jr as Holmes in Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films, is set to appear once more alongside Nicole Kidman as the writer Thomas Wolfe in the drama Genius.
