      Workers on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico try to restrain the power of oil and mud gushing from the sea floor. Tensions mount on the surface as company executives urge cost-cutting that puts the lives of workers in danger.

      Dolby Atmos® audio and Dolby Vision™ imaging help bring to life the day-to-day sounds and sights of the oil rig, and the efforts of oil-industry workers who brave a fiery crisis. "With a film like this," says director Peter Berg, "you have to be as authentic as you can. These are very foreign worlds."

      Based on a real-life disaster that killed 11 people in 2010, Deepwater Horizon takes you to a dark world where profits come before people, and workers face impossible odds as they try to keep an oil rig from a disastrous end.
