Kurt Russell, John Malkovich and Dylan O’Brien also star in the Peter Berg-directed disaster film.

In April 2010, an offshore oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, causing one of the largest man-made environmental disasters in recent memory. In September this year, moviegoers can see the events that lead to said disaster.

The trailer for Deepwater Horizon sees Mark Wahlberg at breakfast with his daughter, explaining how offshore drilling works. This tableau is intercut with footage of workers on the rig in the moments leading up to the explosion. 

The ensemble cast of the Peter Berg-directed drama includes Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Dylan O’Brien, Gina Rodriguez and Kate Hudson.

Deepwater Horizon hits theaters on Sept. 30.
