Lionsgate has released a new trailer for their upcoming Peter Berg directed film Deepwater Horizon. The film 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.
The first trailer for the film was a very effective teaser, as it flipped back-and-forth between moments on the oil rig and Mark Wahlberg’s characters daughter almost narrating the events through a school project. The following trailer explores much more of the story and dives deeper into the action the film will feature. And to be quite honest, it was difficult to watch. not because if was a bad trailer, because it was that complete opposite. But because as I was watching, I realized that these are true events and the incredible brave men and women on this rig went through these tragic moments. And that’s a true testament to director Peter Berg and everyone involved. I for one knew this film would be tough to watch from the beginning, but Berg has captured an essence that can’t be shaken. I’m not only looking forward to it as much as anything that comes out at that time, but I’m also a bit stirred to go see it because of what kind of images will take place.
Take a look at the new trailer below, and don’t forget to head down the comments and let us know your thoughts. Did it have as much of an effect on you as it did me?
