Black Crab Release Date

Black Crab, a Scandinavian action-thriller, starring Noomi Rapace, is coming to Netflix this year, and the streaming service has given us the first look at it.

The film is directed by award-winning Adam Berg and is based on Jerker Virdborg’s acclaimed novel “Black Crab”. It also marks Rapace’s big return in the Sweden Industry after spending the previous ten years abroad starring in films and series such as Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes, and What Happened to Monday.

Black Crab Plot

The movie follows six soldiers in a desperate attempt to put an end to the war that has devastated their lives in a post-apocalyptic world ripped apart by climate change and war. Six soldiers are sent on a dangerous trek across the ice sea to deliver a mysterious package that could bring the conflict to an end during a never-ending winter. They have no idea what risks they will face as they enter hostile enemy territory, or who they can trust if anyone.

Noomi Rapace, a BAFTA nominee whose credits include The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Lamb, and others, has executive produced and is the leading lady of Netflix’s Black Crab.

“I’m very excited to come back to Sweden and do Black Crab. My first Swedish film in years. Can’t wait to get suited up and go on this journey – explore human shadows and slide through broken dreams and a world on edge. Survival to what price?”, Noomi Rapace said, as quoted by What’s on Netflix.

David Kosse, Vice President, International Original Film at Netflix, as quoted by What’s on Netflix, added, “This project combines so many great attributes: a compelling story, a strong creative team, and of course an incredibly talented lead actress. We are looking forward to a great collaboration with Adam and the team at Indio and are confident that our members in Sweden and the rest of the world will enjoy this movie.”

“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 beautiful humanity to the cold harsh world that is the Black Crab”, Adam Berg told What’s on Netflix.
