When a horrific accident hits a nuclear-powered Russian submarine, its crew must fight to survive.

Full film details

As the Russian navy prepares for its first large exercise in over a decade, it launches the Kursk into the northern seas of the Arctic Ocean, with 118 men on board.

But as crashing explosions rock the nuclear-powered vessel, disaster strikes and many of the crew perish, with officer Mikhail Kalekov (Matthias Schoenaerts) among the surviving few.

With the clock running down by the minute and air getting low on the sinking craft, the suffering crew members can only wait for a swift rescue.

However, complications arise above the surface with political gameplaying taking hold. Despite the desperate insistence of help from British navy chief David Russell (Colin Firth), all foreign aid is refused.

As time runs out for the sunken sailors, a decision needs to be made. But with oxygen quickly depleting on the submarine, will any attempt to save the men’s lives be too late?

Kursk: The Last Mission is based on the true story of the Kursk submarine incident that took place almost 20 years ago. This dramatic feature stars Lea Seydoux (Spectre, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Blue is the Warmest Colour), Colin Firth (Kingsman: The Golden Circle, The King’s Speech, Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again), and Matthias Schoenaerts (Red Sparrow, Rust and Bone, Bullhead). Thomas Vinterberg (Far From the Madding Crowd, The Hunt) directs.
