“I will see them again, you understand me?!”

Lionsgate just released the first trailer for the upcoming motion picture “Deepwater Horizon,” and it looks pretty intense. If you like disaster and action movies based on true stories, this movie is going to be perfect for you. Mark Wahlberg and Gina Rodriguez star in a film that tells the story of the crew and families affected by the disastrous (and preventable) oil spill that led to the deaths of 11 men in April 2010. The pulse-pounding trailer gives you a glimpse of a disaster that all but destroyed the Gulf of Mexico and crippled local businesses that relied on the Gulf.

Gina Rodriguez portrays Andrea Fleytas, the 23-year-old employee who sent out the only distress signal to the Coast Guard.

IRL, Fleytas was on the rig when the explosions crippled the rig and noticed that not one distress signal had been issued. The young woman got on the radio and sent the only distress signal. “Mayday. Mayday. This is Deepwater Horizon. We have an uncontrollable fire,” Fleytas said, according to Wall Street Journal. She was then REPRIMANDED by a superior for making the call. Yes, reprimanded. ?

“Deepwater Horizon” is in theaters this fall.

Dimension Films

The 2005 cult classic The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl is coming back to save the day! That’s right, the beloved characters of the family adventure film directed by Robert Rodriguez (who also helmed the popular Spy Kids franchise) will return, this time for a new Netflix movie called We Can Be Heroes.

Rodriguez’s new Netflix film will focus, this time, on the kids of the two superheroes.

“Sharkboy and Lava Girl show up as superhero parents who now have a daughter who has shark and lava powers,” Rodriguez recently revealed, in an interview published by Collider. It’s unclear if Twilight actor Taylor Lautner will make an appearance in the film, but Rodriguez did confirm that Taylor Dooley will make come back to take on her role as Lavagirl.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Pedro Pascal are also set to also perform in the film.

Speaking at a Comic-Con@Home panel Rodriguez described the new movie as an Avengers-type kids movie.

“But they all have kids,” Rodriguez explained. “The kids have powers but they don’t know how to use them because they’re just so young.”

“The movie features 11 young superheroes, and Sharkboy and Lavagirl’s daughter has to figure out how to merge the opposing powers she got from her parents,” People reports. The movie, which completed filming before the COVID-19 crisis, is currently being scored by Rodriguez with an orchestra in Vienna, Austria.

Rodriguez has said that the reboot was born out of Netflix’s desire to create more kid-centered movies with the director behind the wheel.

“Netflix came to me because the Spy Kids movies had done just so well on their service,” Rodriguez explained. “They said ‘Could you make a series of films that do that?’ And I said, ‘I’d love to!'”
