In lieu of the forthcoming AFM market, Strongbow Pictures released new sales art and a long synopsis for a deep sea horror film that takes place at the height of the Cold War.
Phantom, which is written and directed by Todd Robinson, begins when “a Soviet diesel-electric submarine attempts to launch a nuclear weapon at the United States Navy’s Pacific Fleet. In the end, one man stood between the apocalypse and the survival of mankind. But, in the indigo depths of the South Pacific, man and machine are not alone.”
Andy Garcia (The Godfather: Part III ), William Fichtner (Drive Angry 3D), Ed Harris (The Abyss, A History of Violence) and Natascha McElhone (“Califorication”) all star.
The film teases “someTHING” aboard their vessel. Check out the newest promo artwork above with a long synopsis inside.

To observe the manoeuvres submarine Captain Dmitri Zubov, an experienced sailor but a man troubled by a past he struggles to live with, sets sail on what is the final mission of Soviet submarine B756. Armed with multiple torpedoes and a single tactical nuclear ballistic missile the sub is also fitted with a cloaking device that can render them invisible to the Americans.
When B756 fails to make a position report – the last that is heard from the sub it was 500 nautical miles NW of the Hawaiian Islands – Fleet Command classifies the vessel as missing. Fearing western retaliation they send their entire fleet after B756.
Meanwhile deep under the Pacific Ocean Captain Zubov and the ship’s crew of the B-756 uncover a plot that will destroy humanity. Zubov is determined to foil the plot but as the sub is pushed to its very limits and air supplies diminish, he and the crew face almost impossible odds and an increasingly unsettling sense that they are not alone…”
