Does your memory go as far back as 2010, or have too many catastrophes and cataclysms blurred your vision? Peter Berg’s tense account of the Bp Gulf Oil Spill debacle covers twenty hours of technological peril, as Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russell battle idiotic executives and a badly-cemented oil well that’s fixing to blow sky high — and to turn a massive floating oil rig into a hellish inferno.

Director Peter Berg's explosive Deepwater Horizon film starring Mark Wahlberg has just made its Digital HD debut with a physical disc release slated for early next year. To compliment its Digital release, Lionsgate Home Entertainment and developer SubVRsive have rolled out the Deepwater Horizon Vr Experience app adding a new dimension to home video commentaries.
Starting immediately you can download the Deepwater Horizon Vr Experience app from the Apple App Store or Google Play for no charge whatsoever. With the app you can watch a 360-degree commentary from Peter Berg and the film's editor, Colby Parker Jr., for three more complex scenes from the film.
The first scene with 360-degree commentary will be immediately available to anyone who downloads the free app. The two additional scenes will only unlock when the app detects you own the Digital HD version of Deepwater Horizon.

Unlike in years past, when movies outside the best picture fray like “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Speed,” “Se7en” and “Out of Sight” could manage film editing nominations, the editors branch of the Academy has, of late, hued closer to the Oscars’ top category in its collective selections.
That’s increasingly been the case over the last seven years, the era of an expanded best picture field of more than five nominees; only three times during that span of time has a film that wasn’t nominated for best picture landed a film editing nomination, most recently last year for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” But there are a number of options at play this time around.
