I don’t know about you , but I love a good submarine war thriller. Gerard Butler getting one of his own. It’s titled Hunter killer and it’s first explosive trailer has been released for it. The movie actually looks really exciting.
Hunter Killer is an upcoming American action thriller film directed by Donovan Marsh and written by Arne Schmidt and Jamie Moss, based on the 2012 novel Firing Point by Don Keith & George Wallace. The film stars Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Michael Nyqvist (in one of his final film roles) and Common.
Deep under the Arctic Ocean, American submarine Captain Joe Glass (Gerard Butler) is on the hunt for a U.S. sub in distress when he discovers a secret Russian coup is in the offing, threatening to dismantle the world order. With crew and country on the line, Captain Glass must now assemble an elite group of Navy SEALs to rescue the kidnapped Russian president and sneak through enemy waters to stop WWIII.
Based on the trailer, Hunter Killer has the feel of The Hunt For Red October if Michael Bay was allowed in the editing room. The sub-based fiction flick seems to be a send up to those military espionage thrillers of the mid-80s and early 90s, back when Tom Clancy was king, Sean Connery could pass for Russian, and military-themed movies had enough sense to shoot for authenticity in addition to technical accuracy.
