Peter Berg’s upcoming disaster thriller Deepwater Horizon gives faces to the men and women who were aboard the titular drilling rig when it was rocked by an explosion. The blast ignited a fireball visible from 40 miles away, led to 11 casualties and created the largest oil spill in American history.
Mark Wahlberg plays Deepwater Horizon’s southern-drawled crewman Mike Williams. Written by Matthew Michael Carnahan and Matthew Sand, the film also stars Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, and Kate Hudson.
In cinemas September 30
Wahlberg teams up with Peter Berg once again in another true disaster story, Patriots Day looks at the Boston Marathon bombing that happened in 2013.
Wahlberg leads the film as sergeant Tommy Saunders and follows his attempt to catch the bombers before they strike again.
This film is just one of three Boston Marathon bombing dramas that are in the pipeline, this film is released first and will be followed by Stronger which stars Jake Gyllenhaal and then Boston Strong which stars Casey Affleck.
Transformers: The Last Knight
Michael Bay’s blockbuster series has earned a staggering $3.7 billion worldwide to date, so there’s no chance of them giving up on the franchise just yet. That’s why we’re getting the fifth film in 2017, Transformers: The Last Night, and we don’t expect it to be the last either.
Wahlberg is back to lead the cast, and Josh Duhamel returns to the franchise too. Laura Haddock, Anthony Hopkins and Isabela Moner also join the cast.
From a post on Michael Bay’s Instagram account, it’s also been revealed that Megatron — the leader of the Decepticons — will apparently return in the new Transformers movie. But that’s as much as we know about the plot so far.
The film is expected in cinemas June 2017.
Daddy’s Home 2
The ending of Daddy’s Home certainly suggested that there would be a sequel, and it looks like it is coming. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg will return as Brad and Dusty. Beyond that, not much has come forward in terms of plot details or information as to where the story may go from here.
New David O Russell movie
David O Russell and Mark Wahlberg will team up again for the fourth time, after working together on Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees and The Fighter. And it's going to be another biopic too, this time about an athlete who became a priest.
Father Stuart Long is a former boxer and together both Mark and David are working on a script for the firm.
