Coming Soon has shoveled out our first look at the new extended Poseidon trailer and can I just say how happy I am that Leonardo DiCaprio is nowhere near this sinking ship. When the teaser for this one hit awhile back, I was kind of annoyed at how similar to Titanic the film felt. However, after checking out this new trailer, while the two share a similar "Holy crap, the ship is sinking and we need to save our butts" vibe, Poseidon appears to kick up the action a notch.
In this remake of the classic 1972 film, The Poseidon Adventure, folks like Josh Lucas, Kurt Russell, Jacinda Barrett (Wait, wasn't she on The Real World?) and Richard Dreyfuss must come together and figure out how the hell to survive after the luxury ocean liner they're traveling in gets smashed by a gigantic tidal wave. Of course, everyone involved has their own personal stuff going on throughout (personally, I'd be thinking about who would take my massive DVD collection should I perish) and, after we build our characters for awhile, this one really looks like it's going to be a fun ride. Poseidon officially sets sail on May 12th.
