Netflix has revealed the trailer and key art for Black Crab, a Swedish action thriller launching on the streaming service March 18, 2022. You can watch the trailer using the player below and you’ll find the key art underneath.
Black Crab is set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by war. During a long, harsh winter, six soldiers embark on a covert mission across a frozen archipelago, risking their lives to transport a mysterious package that could end the war.
As they enter hostile enemy territory, they have no idea what dangers lie ahead or who — if anyone — they can trust. But for speed skater turned soldier Caroline Edh, the mission is about something else entirely.
The film was directed by Adam Berg from a script by Berg and Pelle Rådström. The movie is based on the novel Svart krabba by Jerker Virdborg.
The cast is lead by Noomi Rapace and also includes Jakob Oftebro (The Letter for the King, Hamilton, Norsemen), Erik Enge (Tigers, The Bridge), Dar Salim (The Devil’s Double, Game of Thrones, Darkland), and Ardalan Esmaili (The Charmer, Greyzone).
Director Adam Berg said: “I’m very happy and proud to have such a strong cast breathe life into this movie and our characters. These skilled actors, their eyes, voices, faces and bodies will carry us through the story.
“They will make us feel the brutality of war, the importance of hope in a hopeless world and the hard price you have to pay for survival. They will bring a beautiful humanity to the cold harsh world that is the Black Crab.”
The movie is produced by Malin Idevall, Mattias Montero. The executive producers include Noomi Rapace, Christopher Granier-Deferre, Adam Berg, Emil Wiklund, and Kim Magnusson.
