Ahead of next month’s release, Signature Entertainment has released a new tense fuelled UK Trailer

Based on the gripping true story of the Kursk submarine tragedy of 2000 in which 118 men lost their lives, Kursk: The Last Mission is a tense submarine thriller from critically-acclaimed director Thomas Vinterberg (The Hunt, Far From the Madding Crowd).

When a Russian naval exercise goes horribly wrong, the Kursk submarine erupts in flame killing most of the men onboard and sending the trapped survivors to the bottom of sea. Time is running out for Russian Captain Mikhail Averin (Matthias Schoenaerts) and his crew, as fire engulfs the vessel starving them of oxygen.

Ignoring the advice of their own people, the Russian government refuses the help of the UK Navy operation headed by Captain David Russell (Colin Firth). When they finally give way to mounting domestic pressure, it’s too little too late…

Mirroring the callous greed shown by BP in Deep Water Horizon and with the claustrophobic tension of submarine classics The Hunt for Red October and Crimson Tide, this is the story of the doomed operation to recover the Kursk.

The film also stars Léa Seydoux (Spectre, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Red Sparrow, The Danish Girl).Thomas Vinterberg directs the film (The Hunt, Far From The Madding Crowd remake).

Kursk: The Last Mission will be released in UK Cinemas as well as Digital Download from 12th July.
