Mark Wahlberg stars in this explosive true story that's legitimately stranger than fiction.
In April of 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, sending up a fireball that could be seen up to forty miles away. Eleven crewmen were killed in the blast, the rig (engulfed in flames which proved impossible to put out) sank to the ocean floor, and the resulting oil spill was the largest ever to occur in U.S. waters.
Peter Berg’s DEEPWATER HORIZON tells the story of the brave men who were lucky enough to escape the Deepwater Horizon with their lives… and their frantic attempts to get an imminent ecological disaster under control.
Starring Mark Wahlberg (reuniting with Berg after 2013’s LONE SURVIVOR), Kate Hudson, Dylan O’Brien, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, and Gina Rodriguez, DEEPWATER HORIZON tells an explosive true story that’s legitimately stranger than fiction.
