When faced with our darkest hour, hope is not a tactic.
With an all-star cast and based on a true story Deepwater Horizon tells the story, and recounts the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.
On April 20th 2010 a huge explosion occurred on the Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. The explosion caused the rig to burn and sink, and the same blowout that caused the explosion also caused a massive offshore oil spill in the surrounding waters, considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in the world, and the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history. Equally as devastating was the loss of 11 workers and the numerous injuries that also occurred as a result.
Directed by Peter Berg, the film stars Mark Wahlberg in the lead role, with an extensive cast that includes Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien, and Kate Hudson.
The film is due for a worldwide release on September 30th, but you can watch the thrilling trailer below.
