“We’re not gonna die out here.” Coming off one of the most ruthless hurricane seasons in memory, here is the new trailer for Adrift, the survival-at-sea drama starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin from director Baltasar Kormákur. Landlubbers who blanch at the thought of facing a wave the size of an office building might want to look elsewhere.
The based-on-a-true-story logline: As free-spirited sailors Tami Oldham (Woodley) and Richard Sharp (Claflin) set out on a journey across the ocean, they couldn’t anticipate that they would be sailing directly into one of the most catastrophic hurricanes in recorded history. In the aftermath of the storm, Tami awakens to find Richard badly injured and their boat in ruins. With no hope for rescue, Tami must find the strength and determination to save herself and the only man she has ever loved.
Aaron Kandell & Jordan Kandell and David Branson Smith wrote the screenplay based on the memoir by Tami Oldham Ashcraft with Susea McGearhart. STXfilms, which made a deal to produce and distribute Adrift just before of the 2017 Berlin Film Festival, will release it June 1. Plant your feet on terra firma, have a look at the trailer above, and tell us what you think.
