Watch: Mark Wahlberg Faces Disaster in ‘Deepwater Horizon’ Trailer
Lionsgate has released the first teaser-trailer for “Deepwater Horizon” with several scenes re-creating the massive 2010 explosion that killed 11 men working on the platform.

Wahlberg plays an electrician on the oil rig. John Malkovich, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez and Dylan O’Brien also star. The movie will mark the first onscreen pairing of Russell with his daughter Hudson.

Four Different Directors Could All Win Oscars Sunday

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Four different directors whose films are nominated for best picture could all win Oscars at Sunday’s ceremony.

Birdman, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, and Boyhood, directed by Richard Linklater, are frontrunners in the best picture race. Both directors are nominated as co-producers on their respective films and both are also nominated for best director. If Inarritu wins for best picture and Linklater wins for best director (or vice versa), it would be the 24th time in Oscar history where best picture and best director have split.

Wes Anderson, director of The Grand Budapest Hotel, and Damien Chazelle, director of Whiplash, are nominated for original screenplay and adapted screenplay, respectively. Anderson co-produced The Grand Budapest Hotel.

If Anderson and Chazelle win for their screenplays (and Linklater and Inarritu win), it would be the second year in a row where three or more directors won at the same awards ceremony.
