Here's the trailer for the new French film Desplat scored. Sounds like his score over the second half, including a Russian chorus.



It's a strange Europudding production - French/Belgian-produced, about the sinking of a Russian submarine, in English, with Dutch, British, French, and Swedish lead actors.

It premieres at Toronto this week and comes out in France in November. Hopefully there will be a French CD when it's released there. The film has no US release date.

The movie has already been released but still no info re the score album?

I saw the film yesterday. The music is very sparse in it. There's a wonderful Russian flavoured melody, some harsh music during the dark scenes and a Russian orthodox church song (I think the Russian flavoured melody I mentioned before is based on this song. It may happen that it was actually written by Desplat, I don't know.)

I think there's probably 15-20 minutes of score in the movie if my memory serves right.

It's a French film, and was released there in November, where it was a huge flop.

Box Office Mojo shows it has been released in a couple of other European territories:

It hasn't been released in the US and doesn't even have a release date here.

Looks like the film went direct-to-streaming in the US, under a new title, THE COMMAND:

It actually had a contractual obligation release in the "Los Angeles area" a few weeks ago, playing only at the Galaxy Mission Grove (possibly only once or twice a day). I didn't know it was retitled or being released until the Onion AV Club panned it that week.

Between this and The Mercy, films starring Colin Firth based on real-life oceanic tragedies are not exactly a sure bet, to say the least.

Yowza, that's terrible. The reviews out of Toronto weren't wretched, just mediocre.

At least someone posted the music from the 5.1 surrounds on the French Blu-Ray. I don't know if that's considered "allowed" here, if not, please tell me and I'll take down the link. However, since YouTube hasn't taken it down, I'm assuming it's okay:
