Hmm, does a film set in August 2000 count as a period drama?

If Colin Firth is leading the cast, we’re going to say ‘yes’!

A trailer has been unveiled for upcoming Russian submarine thriller The Command, which tells the gripping true story of the K-1412 KURSK.

The K-1412 KURSK was a Russian flagship nuclear powered submarine that sank to the bottom of the Barents Sea in August 2000.

The official synopsis reads: “As 23 sailors fought for survival aboard the disabled sub, their families desperately battled bureaucratic obstacles and impossible odds to find answer and save them.”
