- An oil rig was built in Chalmette, Louisiana especially for this film. It’s also been one of the biggest set pieces to have ever been built.
- The film is based on the true story of 2010’s Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill that happened in the Gulf of Mexico.
- $122 million of the film’s $156 million budget was spent in Louisiana alone!
- Mike Williams who is a survivor of the real event worked closely with the film crew to help make the film stay real as possible to give viewers an understanding of what the real circumstances were for those who lost their lives and survived.
- This is the first film Kate Hudson has worked on with her step-father Kurt Russell.
