Lionsgate has released a new poster for Peter Berg’s upcoming “Deepwater Horizon” about the true story tragedy that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20th 2010. Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Dylan O’Brien, Gina Rodriguez and Kate Hudson star in the film which opens September 30th.
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.
In terms of another film about a true disaster but with a happier outcome, Warner Bros. Pictures has just released the first poster for Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” which stars Tom Hanks as Captain ‘Sully’ Sullenberger who helped glide a disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. That film co-stars Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney and opens September 9th.
