From The Director of The Perfect Storm and Troy.

It's New Year's Eve on the Poseidon. Partying voyagers lift glasses to toast the future. The future comes in a rush: a 150-foot rogue wave flips the cruise ship over... and a desperate struggle to survive begins.

Director Wolfgang Petersen (The Perfect Storm, Das Boot) returns to the sea with a thrill-packed, cutting-edge screen adaptation of Paul Gallico's novel The Poseidon Adventure. Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum and more portray the passengers who must rely on each other as they seek safety through the water, flames and wreckage of a world turned upside down. There's another active player in this spectacular nail-biter: the 13-deck, 20-stories tall Poseidon as it shifts, lurches and implodes. The sights dazzle. The suspense surges. All hands on deck, movie fans!
