“We are losing the war, but we’ve been presented with one last option.” That’s the sound of Netflix going post-apocalyptic for Black Crab – and a new trailer gives us a closer look at the thriller.
Directed by Adam Berg, the film is set in a world torn apart by conflict. 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 they can trust. But for speed skater turned soldier Caroline Edh, the mission is about something else entirely.
Noomi Rapace plays Caroline, and you can see her in action when the film premieres on 18th March. Here’s the trailer:

Noomi Rapace is returning to Netflix to star in new feature film Black Crab.
The movie, based on the novel of the same name by Jerker Virdborg, is set in a post-apocalyptic world torn apart by climate change and war. During an endless winter, six soldiers are sent on a dangerous mission across the frozen sea to transport a package that could finally end the war. Equipped with ice skates, unaware of what they’re carrying, or who they can trust, the mission challenges their beliefs and forces them to ask: what are they willing to sacrifice for their own survival?
Rapace will play the lead role, marking her return to Sweden after spending a decade abroad in films such as Prometheus, Sherlock Holmes and Netflix thriller What Happened to Monday. The film is written and directed by Adam Berg, who will make his feature debut on the project. He has previously been exec-producer on Amazon’s adaptation of Tales from the Loop and had a successful music video and commercials, including Carousel, winner of Grand Prix in Cannes, Assassin Creed’s Black Flag and Happiness’ All Apologies.
The feature film is produced by Malin Idevall together with Mattias Montero from Indio.
Rapace says: “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?
“As a Swede you grow up knowing you live in a country of peace and equality, all in all life’s good and safe here. But lately we have all learned how fragile our societies are due to pandemics, civil wars, global warming and economic chaos. How would it be to wake up one day in a totally destroyed and war torn Sweden? Producing Black Crab is about flipping the coin and from a Scandinavian perspective show what happens to humanity when chaos arrives. It’s a big production and a great challenge and thanks to Netflix we can tell this Swedish story to a global audience.”, says Montero.
Black Crab will be relesased globally on Netflix in 2022.
