Universal has released the first clip for Black Sea featuring Jude Law as a rogue captain hunting for hidden Nazi gold.

The suspenseful adventure thriller is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald (Touching the Void; The Eagle) and follows a submarine captain who pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

This first clip sets up how a treasure from the 1940s has survived and is still salvageable more than 70 years later. We also get to see some of the claustrophobia on display as the crew mates show their first signs of turning on each other in the hopes of gathering a greater share of the treasure for themselves. 

Check out the first scene from Black Sea as it prepares for its release this January in theaters nationwide.
