Watch the Intense First Trailer for ‘Deepwater Horizon’

The film takes on the tragic drilling rig explosion that caused one of the worst oil spills of all time.

2010’s BP Oil Spill has gone down as one of the world’s worst environmental disasters. Director Peter Berg hopes to encapsulate that moment with his movie Deepwater Horizon, which specifically focuses on the heroic efforts by the men and women out in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico that day. Starring Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich, Dylan O’Brien, and Gina Rodriguez as the ship’s crew, the early teaser footage barely describes the destruction they’ll be face to face with after rig’s untimely explosion. Knowing the conclusion to this movie doesn’t lower the stakes whatsoever.
