Gerard Butler “Dives Deep” to save the world from WWIII in the new action thriller “Hunter Killer”.
The United States Navy has the submarine USS Tampa Bay shadowing a Russian submarine under the Ice just outside Russian waters. The crew of the US sub witnesses an explosion on the Russian submarine just before they are hit by a missile sinking them. Word gets back to the Pentagon that the Tampa Bay is missing and there were two explosions in the area and the Russians are moving their warships.
RA Fisk has mustered the USS Arkansas out of Scotland and Fisk has “picked up” a submarine captain, Joe Glass to command the sub and search for survivors. Glass is working class Navy, never commanded a sub but has done every other job on the ship. The Russians believe the US sunk their submarine, so tensions are high. The Arkansas finds the remnants of the Tampa Bay on the ocean floor, no survivors. Next, they come across the Russian sub and see the blast hole, all evidence points to an internal explosion…sabotage! There is a sound picked up by the radio, there are survivors on the Russian ship.
