When faced with our darkest hour, hope is not a tactic
Inspired by a true story of real life heroes
Kristen Stewart was initially offered the lead role but had to decline due to scheduling conflict

The movie had recieved a standing ovation after its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival

JC Chandor was attached to direct, but dropped out citing creative differences

This would be the second collaboration of Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg, earlier they had worked on 'Lone Survivor'

A role was offered to Emma Stone initially but she declined as the script was still being worked on

Graham McGinnis who potrays the Coast Guard Lieutenant is an active duty Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmer stationed at USCG Airstation New Orleans in real life

A large number of oilfield workers in the Gulf of Mexico were against making the film because they feel that it dishonors the men who had died during the actual event

An oil rig was built just for this film and is located in Chalmette, Louisiana where the filming mostly took place.

The producers of the movie had contacted Mark Wahlberg as they wanted a screen combo of an older and younger male lead together.
