Samuel Goldwyn Films
It’s been quite some time since German auteur Wim Wenders has made a decent narrative feature, but the first trailer for SUBMERGENCE, a political thriller starring James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander, looks like a big sweeping epic unlike anything we’ve seen from Wenders in quite some time.
It’s also his first film in quite some time based on someone else’s screenplay, in this case Erin Dignam’s adaptation of J.M. Ledgard’s nove.
Submergence premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September, and it’s already opened in a few other countries. Samuel Goldwyn Films picked up its U.S. rights, and the distributor has released a new trailer for the film.
The official plot summary for the film is:
James (James McAvoy) is a British agent and Danny (Alicia Vikander) is a scientist working on a deep-sea diving project. A wild love affair develops even though their jobs, and their individual dangerous missions, are destined to separate them.
Samuel Goldwyn Films will release Submergence in select cities on April 13, and you can watch the new trailer for the film below.
