On April 20th, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. Starring Mark Wahlberg and directed by Peter Berg, this true life story honours the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever.
Joining Wahlberg in the film are Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, Kate Hudson, and Dylan O’Brien. The story is also reportedly based on the human drama and tragedy on board the oil rig and not a politically-charged drama as many would have expected.
Deepwater Horizon opens in theatres later this year.
