Alicia Vikander and James McAvoy make for a very attractive couple in the first U.S. trailer for their romantic thriller Submergence — exclusive to PEOPLE!

Directed by Wim Wenders (Pina), the film is based on the novel of the same name by J. M. Ledgard.

McAvoy plays a British Secret Service agent who’s taken hostage by Jihadist fighters while on a mission in Somalia. Thousand of miles away in the Greenland Sea, Danielle Flinders (Vikander) prepares to dive in a submersible to the ocean floor. Both stuck in their confines, the pair are drawn back to the Christmas of the previous year, where a chance encounter on a beach in France led to an intense romance.
