Last October 4, 2016, @IGersManila watched the advanced screening of Deepwater Horizon. Big thanks to Viewers’ Choice Philippines for the invitation to watch the said film in SM Megamall Cinema 6.
The movie is a story of survival and was inspired by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill which began on April 20, 2010, in the Gulf of Mexico – it is considered to be the worst Oil Spill disaster ever happened. The movie circulated with the story of Mike Williams – Chief Electrical Engineer of an oil company – portrayed by Mark Wahlberg.
It is true that danger may come when we least expect them so the only way to survive when that time comes is to be prepared and resilient. This movie indeed captivated a lot of viewers because it is part of our history. What we don’t know are the stories behind it.
The movie earned a total of $88M worldwide for 3 weeks.
