The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion is chronicled in the upcoming feature Deepwater Horizon, and the new trailer for the film has just been released. Mark Wahlberg is Mike Williams, the electrician who escaped the tragedy that killed 11 people, and the project continues his collaboration with Lone Survivor director Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights, Hancock). Wahlberg was seen last year in the indie thriller Mojave, which reunited him with The Departed screenwriter William Monahan (he directed the feature), Daddy’s Home, and Ted 2.
The movie also stars Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) and Kurt Russell (Bone Tomahawk, The Hateful Eight) as crew members Andrea Fleytas and Jimmy Harrell. BP representative Donald Vidrine is played by John Malkovich.
Deepwater Horizon opens nationwide September 30. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
