Just a few days ago we got our first real look at Lionsgate’s upcoming true story based action drama Deepwater Horizon. The film is directed by Peter Berg (Lone Survivor) and stars Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and many other solid cast members. Following the release of those first look images, we now have a teaser trailer to go along with them.
Deepwater Horizon tells the true story of the 2010 BP oil rig explosion that took place off the Gulf of Mexico, recounting the extreme courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon rig and their moments of bravery and survival during the world’s biggest man-made disaster. It’s an incredibly effective teaser trailer, as it goes back and forth between scenes on the rig and Wahlberg’s on-screen daughter explaining how the oil rigs works, foreshadowing the impeding doom that will strike the Deepwater Horizon. It’s still unknown whether or not the film will touch on the political side of the events, but the action drama also looks to have a bit of a thriller feel to it, which is very intriguing.
What the new trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Peter Berg’s Deepwater Horizon hits theaters later this year on September 30th and stars Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien, Kate Hudson, and John Malkovich.
