It's New Year's Eve on the luxury liner Poseidon. Partying voyagers toast the future.
And then the future comes in a rush: a 150-foot rogue wave flips the cruise ship over…and a struggle to survive begins.
Director Wolfgang Petersen (The Perfect Storm) 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 play passengers who must rely on each other as they seek safety through the water, flames and wreckage of an upside-down world.
