Second Poseidon Trailer Hits the Waves

by | March 20, 2006 | Comments

Click right here to enjoy trailer #2 for what’s fast becoming one of my most anticipated early-summer releases. (Mainly because I love the original "Poseidon Adventure," but also because disaster flicks are a whole lot of fun.) This second promo piece features a lot more dialogue and "character moments" than the first one … and the special effects look pretty darn swanky.

"It’s New Year’s Eve and festivities have begun aboard the luxury cruise Poseidon, at sea in the North Atlantic. One of the finest vessels of its kind, Poseidon stands more than 20 stories tall, boasts 800 staterooms and 13 passenger decks.

Tonight, many of the ship’s guests have gathered to greet the new year in style in the magnificent Main Ballroom. They raise champagne glasses as Captain Michael Bradford delivers a holiday toast and the band rolls into a version of Auld Lang Syne. Meanwhile, on the bridge, the First Officer senses that something is wrong.

Scanning the horizon, he sees it – a Rogue Wave; a monstrous wall of water over one hundred feet high, bearing down on them with tremendous speed. He tries to steer the ship away from maximum impact but it’s too late.

The wave strikes with colossal force, pitching the ship heavily to port before rolling it completely upside down. Passengers and crew are thrown into free fall, crushed by debris or dragged into the sea as water bursts in through shattered windows. Supports collapse, broken gas lines ignite flash fires and lights fail, leaving vast sections of the ship in darkness and chaos.

In its aftermath a few hundred survivors are left to huddle in the still-intact Main Ballroom, now resting below the waterline. They should stay together, the captain maintains, and wait here for rescue.

One man, professional gambler Dylan Johns, prefers to test the odds alone. Ignoring orders, he prepares to exit the Ballroom and find his own way to safety, but is collared by eight-year-old Conor, who asks that Dylan take him and his mother Maggie along. Fast behind them is Robert Ramsey, anxious to search for his daughter Jennifer and her fiancé Christian. Only an hour earlier this young couple had found it impossible to tell him they were engaged and now face much graver challenges.

Wary of alliances, Dylan reluctantly leads the small band of survivors upward through the bowels of the ship. Those who choose to join them rather than wait below include a shy stowaway, a suicidal man who re-discovers his will to live and a young waiter with knowledge of the ship’s layout.

Determined to fight their way to the surface, they must forge a path together through layers of wreckage as the ship continues to sink. Bonds form quickly in this journey of vertical climbs, dead ends and sheer drops. And trust proves vital."

Starring Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, and a whole bunch of familiar faces, "Poseidon" hits the screens courtesy of "The Perfect Storm" director Wolfgang Petersen. May 12th, cruise fans, is when the festivities begin.
