With tensions between the U.S. and Russia seemingly the highest they’ve been since the Cold War, it is clearly time for a new submarine thriller that imagines both countries on the verge of World War III. In Hunter Killer, Gerard Butler (who else?) plays an American submarine captain tasked with rescuing the Russian president after he is kidnapped by a rogue general as part of an attempted coup. The fate of the entire world hangs in the balance, obviously. Crimson Tide or The Hunt for Red October it ain’t, but even a lesser submarine flick usually delivers some tense moments. Hunter Killer co-stars Gary Oldman, Michael Nyqvist, Linda Cardellini and Common and it hits theatres on Oct. 26th. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
