M-Net Movies Premiere, DStv Channel 104 will screen Deepwater Horizon tomorrow at 18h15 (September 28, 2017).

Directed by Peter Berg in 2016, the thriller stars Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell and Douglas M Griffin.

A real-life drama with a powerful ensemble cast. It is based on the Deep Water Horizon explosion, which resulted in millions of litres of oil being spilt into the sea in the Gulf of Mexico – with a disastrous effect on marine life.

The senior executive of a major oil company issues instructions to reduce safety inspections in order to speed up the drilling process on a massive rig in the Gulf of Mexico – in spite of warnings that this will endanger the lives of everyone on the rig. The result? The biggest oil spill in US history. Rating:13VL
