Based on the true story of a heroic band of oil rig workers on Deepwater Horizon, the submersible offshore drilling platform in the Gulf of Mexico that exploded in 2010, this film follows the dramatic events that followed as the workers desperately fought to stay alive in the aftermath of the worst oil spill in US history. 

Mark Walhberg and director Peter Berg team up again after their 2013 film Lone Survivor with a tense drama that recreates the frenzied moments that lead up to the worst disaster in US oil drilling history. John Malkovich, Kurt Russell and Kate Hudson co-star.
