In his review of the film, James Rocchi (The Wrap) says the film, “will have any thrillseekers in the theater clutching their armrest and shivering with imagined terrors.”
Black Sea is a suspenseful adventure thriller centering on a rogue submarine captain (two-time Academy Award nominee Jude Law) who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.
Back Lot Music is issuing the digital soundtrack album for Black Sea, directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald, it was announced today. The soundtrack features 25 new score cues by composer Ilan Eshkeri. »

The plays of William Shakespeare have received more than their fair share of the cinematic treatment over the years. From the silent era version of The Taming of the Shrew to more recent “modern” adaptations of Titus Andronicus, Coriolanus, and everyone’s favorite standby Hamlet, the works of the Bard have been plumbed to the very depths. Yet, somehow, some of Shakespeare’s lesser known works have yet to see the light of a cinema screen. That is now being rectified with the upcoming Anarchy, a new and updated version of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline.
Anarchy takes Cymbeline out of the world of kings and courtiers and into modern-day motorcycles, street gangs, and drug dealing. The original play tells the story of King Cymbeline, his daughter Imogen, and her secret marriage to Posthumus Leonatus. Scheming members of the royal family and elsewhere lead to war between the Britons and the Romans. »
