A dramatization of the disaster back in April 2010, when the offshore drilling rig called the Deepwater Horizon created a giant explosion, which created the worst oil spill in American history.
Mark Wahlberg reportedly stayed in character on-set, in between each scene and take.
I don't want to die! I don't want to die.
Mike Williams: You're not going to die. Trust me.
During the movie, several views are made of the moon pool, where the riser top is supported by the Riser Tensioner cables. On a Semi Submersible rig, the Riser is anchored to the top of the BOP, on the seabed, and thus fixed with regards to the floating Rig. When the Riser is connected, the compensators hold the Riser via the Riser tensioner cables. The Rig is floating, following the heave. During the shots from the moon pool, you can see the cables holding the riser, but everything is absolutely still.
During the opening logos and first few opening credits, you can hear a real life audio clip from the trial that ensued following the disaster.
