added: Mon, Mar 5th '18

Check out the new U.S. trailer for "Submergence," an epic romantic drama starring James McAvoy and Alicia Vikander.

Directed by 72-year-old German auteur Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire, Paris Texas), the film is based on J.M. Ledgard's acclaimed novel of the same name. And it tells the story of a British spy (McAvoy) who, after meeting and falling in love with a beautiful bio-mathematician (Vikander), is assigned to undertake a dangerous mission in Somalia. He is soon captured by jihadists and becomes their prisoner.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Vikander's oceanographer character also finds herself in a touch-and-go operation while working on an equally dangerous deep-sea diving project. Despite being half a world apart, both characters find themselves reflecting on their love affair and hoping they can survive their respective situations in order to reunite and continue their romance.

After premiering at last year's Toronto International Film Festival, "Submergence" is scheduled to be released in select U.S. theaters and on VOD/Digital beginning April 13th.

James (James McAvoy) is a British agent working undercover, and Danny (Alicia Vikander) is a bio-mathematician working on a deep-sea diving project. While preparing for their respective missions, a deliriously wild love affair develops. They rapidly and unexpectedly fall into each other's arms, even though their jobs are destined to separate them. Danny sets off on a perilous quest to dive to the bottom of the ocean; James's assignment takes him to Somalia, where he is sucked into a geopolitical vortex putting him in grave danger. During their missions, they suffer different kinds of isolation as they pine for one another, hoping to reconnect amidst their dangerous journeys.
