While Matthew McConaughey continues to be deservedly praised for his career turnaround, how about a little shout out to Jude Law? He too has put together a pretty nice string of pictures over the past few years, teaming twice with Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion," "Side Effects"), logging time with Martin Scorsese ("Hugo"), Wes Anderson ("The Grand Budapest Hotel") and Joe Wright ("Anna Karenina"), and taking a big bite out of next spring's delightfully raunchy "Dom Hemingway" (review here). And oh yeah, he's got the thriller "Black Sea" coming too, and some first look images have arrived...

While Matthew McConaughey continues to be deservedly praised for his career turnaround, how about a little shout out to Jude Law? He too has put together a pretty nice string of pictures over the past few years, teaming twice with Steven Soderbergh ("Contagion," "Side Effects"), logging time with Martin Scorsese ("Hugo"), Wes Anderson ("The Grand Budapest Hotel") and Joe Wright ("Anna Karenina"), and taking a big bite out of next spring's delightfully raunchy "Dom Hemingway" (review here). And oh yeah, he's got the thriller "Black Sea" coming too, and some first look images have arrived...

The movie teams Law with director Kevin Macdonald in a tale that follows Robinson, an unemployed submarine captain and former British Navy man who is hired to lead an expedition to find a sunken sub supposedly loaded with gold, supposedly sent as a bribe to Hitler. So he puts together a ragtag crew to take on the gig, and naturally, things don't go as planned. Macdonald cites "Run Silent, Run Deep" and (of course) "Das Boot" as thematic touchstones for the film.

“They’re incredibly tense, exciting films because of the claustrophobia and the sense that you’re somewhere you shouldn’t be. Like in space, if something goes wrong, you’re dead,” he said. 

There is still some filming to go on "Black Sea," but you can expect it drop anchor in 2014. Pics below. [EW]
