“I’ve been working on submarines for nearly 30 years,” Law says in the trailer, with a thick Scottish brogue. “I lost my family to this job.”

Law sets his sights on a Hitler U-boat full of gold that promises to make him and his men rich. Once underwater, tensions rise and the crew begins to turn on each other in the hopes of upping their individual take from the treasure.

“Black Sea” is due out in theaters January 2015.
