Deepwater Horizon

Mark Wahlberg has faced Transformers, terrorists, corrupt cops, and deadly trees. This time, he's facing an oil drilling rig that experiences a deadly blowout and threatens everyone on board. Deepwater Horizon is the latest film from Lone Survivor director Peter Berg, chronicling the real life disaster that happened nearly six years ago. The exposition in this trailer juxtaposed with the dramatized disaster is done very nicely, but things really get intense when the rig goes up in a huge fireball. This just might be good.

Here's the first Deepwater Horizon trailer from Lionsgate:

On April 20, 2010, the world’s largest man-made disaster occurred on the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico. Directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor), this story honors the brave men and women whose heroism would save many on board, and change everyone’s lives forever. Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O'Brien and Kate Hudson star in the true story with a script from Matthew Michael Carnahan and Matthew Sand. Lionsgate releases the film September 30th.

    This actually looks solid. I like how they went with "real heroes" in this age of superhero films.

      Yeah, why not... Although I thought the best part of the trailer was until 1:30. If they'd stopped after the Coke can started gushing, it might have been even better. Other than that: not a bad start...

    Hurry, toss some golf balls down the hole!

    I'm not a fan of Wahlberg and Berg has recently been off his game but I was impressed with the restraint shown in this trailer and the particularly impressive cast.

      Almost every 'star' listed, has a good body of work. Even if this movie sucks, I doubt it'll be because of their performances.

    I wonder if the movie will tackle the aftermath of this disaster, starting with the tons of oil spewed in the gulf, the attempted coverup, the killing of thousands of animals, all the way to the huge fine paid by BP which didn't really seem to hurt their bottom line anyway....
      As well as the freakish recovery mother nature has managed to pull off.
    Berg is (almost) always a solid director. I was pretty apprehensive about DEEPWATER HORIZON, but yeah, I will definitely have to check it out.
