Lionsgate has released a new Deepwater Horizon poster, featuring Academy Award nominee Mark Wahlberg who stars as Mike Williams, one of the last crew members to escape the ill-fated BP drilling rig.
Based on the true events that occurred on the oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, the story chronicles the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.
The film also stars Golden Globe nominee Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight), Academy Award nominee John Malkovich (Red, Burn After Reading), Dylan O’Brien (The Maze Runner), Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) and Academy Award nominee Kate Hudson (Almost Famous, Nine).
Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) directed screenplay written by Matthew Sand and Matthew Michael Carnahan (The Kingdom), based upon the 2010 New York Times article “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hours” by David Barstow, David Rohde and Stephanie Saul.
Deepwater Horizon arrives in theaters on September 30th.
