Marea Negra y Deepwater Horizon

Muy buenas,
Hace no mucho estuve en una charla sobre el desastre y, al poco, me enteré de la película:

Basado en los eventos sucedidos en el Golfo de México en abril del 2010, cuando un accidente en un oleoducto causó una catástrofe que mató a 11 personas e hirió a otras 16, provocando además una de las catástrofes medioambientales más graves causadas por el hombre. (FILMAFFINITY)

A ver qué tal.
P.D: Información sobre lo que ocurrió:

Deepwater Horizon was an ultra-deepwater, dynamically positioned, semi-submersible offshore drilling rig owned by Transocean. Built in 2001 in South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries, the rig was commissioned by R&B Falcon (a later asset of Transocean), registered in Majuro, and leased to BP from 2001 until September 2013. In September 2009, the rig drilled the deepest oil well in history at a vertical depth of 35,050 ft (10,683 m) and measured depth of 35,055 ft (10,685 m) in the Tiber Oil Field at Keathley Canyon block 102, approximately 250 miles (400 km) southeast of Houston, in 4,132 feet (1,259 m) of water.

On 20 April 2010, while drilling at the Macondo Prospect, an uncontrollable blowout caused an explosion on the rig that killed 11 crewmen and ignited a fireball visible from 40 miles (64 km) away. The fire was inextinguishable and, two days later, on 22 April, the Horizon sank, leaving the well gushing at the seabed and causing the largest oil spill in U.S. waters.
