Ok, so don’t let the wacky sounding title fool you. “Black Crab” is a Swedish action thriller coming to Netflix next month and the first trailer does a great job selling the film. It’s based on a novel of the same name by Jerker Verdborg and it thrusts its audience into a harsh and dangerous post-apocalyptic world. Noomi Rapace stars and Adam Berg directs this movie that could turn into a surprise hit for the streaming giant.
Rapace plays Caroline, one of six soldiers sent on a daring covert mission across a frozen archipelago. Their mission is to carry a mysterious package to an unknown party waiting on the other side. But for Caroline, it’s about something else entirely – something much more personal. As they make the trek, the team encounters countless threats from both nature and man. The snippets we get from the trailer look incredible, and it seems like Berg is really leaning on his perilous setting. I can’t wait to see where this one goes.
“Black Crab” premieres March 18th on Netflix. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
