Hunter Killer UK trailer: Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman save the world
Hmm, it might not be the best time to release Hunter Killer, given the 'tensions' being played out through the media at the moment. The title could've perhaps been a bit more subtle at least. It's not exactly Das Boot by the looks of it but it could be good throwaway fun, as long as Butler isn't chewing up too much of the scenery. It does aim for a sly The Hunt For Red October look at the end which is a bit cheap. Take a deep dive and check out the trailer for Hunter Killer above.
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. Captain Glass must now assemble an elite group of Navy SEALs to rescue the kidnapped Russian president and sneak through enemy waters to stop World War III.
Donovan Marsh is in the directors chair with a cast also featuring Gary Oldman, Caroline Goodall, Common (isn't he in everything nowadays?) and Caroline Goodall.
Hunter Killer emerges in UK cinemas on October 19th 2018.
