The first trailer has arrived for “The Hunt” and “Far from the Madding Crowd” director Thomas Vinterberg’s new intense submarine drama “Kursk” starring Matthias Schoenaerts, Colin Firth, Lea Seydoux, Max Von Sydow and Michael Nyqvist in his final performance.
The story deals with the ‘unsinkable’ K-141 Kursk submarine and the disaster in which 118 Russians perished in the year 2000 during the first major Russian Navy exercise since the end of the Soviet Union.
The Kursk was sunk during a Russian naval exercise in the Barents Sea following explosions within the submarine. The Russian government refused help from foreign governments for almost a week.
The film premieres in Toronto this week and opens overseas in November, but no U.S. theatrical release is yet set.
