“Ed Harris plays the captain of a Cold War Soviet missile submarine who has secretly been suffering from seizures that alter his perception of reality. Forced to leave his wife and daughter, he is rushed into a classified mission, where he is haunted by his past and challenged by a rogue KGB group (led by David Duchovny) bent on seizing control of the ship’s nuclear missile. With the fate of humanity in his hands, Harris discovers he has been chosen for this mission in the belief he would fail. Phantom is a suspense submarine thriller about extraordinary men facing impossible choices.”
Looks like an entertaining movie. But if the story is about Soviet Russian submariners, why do I feel like it’s a movie about American submariners? I guess it’s probably because those actors, though damn talented, are way too anchored in America to really play commie characters.
Anyway, here’s the official poster:
You’ll never see it coming.
Inspired by actual events.
Besides Ed Harris and David Duchovny, the cast also includes William Fitchtner, Sean Patrick Flanery, Johnathon Schaech, Lance Henriksen, Jason Beghe, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Julian Adams. The release date of Phantom is set for March 1, 2013.
