The blockbuster phenomenon now becomes a precedent-setting new miniseries that raises the stakes - and the fear factor - in a thrilling adaptation of Paul Gallico's bestselling passage of unfathomable suspense.
As the luxury liner Poseidon slices through the waters of an ocean storm, the greatest danger is already on board: a terrorist with an explosive message for the world. Detonated on New Year's Eve, the blast capsizes the ship leaving a motley crew - the madman among them - struggling for survival in this upside-down life-and-death drama.
With an all-star cast, THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE is an ingenious mix of breathtaking special effects, heart-pounding human drama, and alarming suspense surpassing all that has come before for sheer epic adventure-level by terrifying level.
Made-For-TV remake of the 1972 disaster classic starring Gene Hackman and Shelley Winters. Includes almost 40 minutes of additional footage not shown during the original broadcast! Notable Cast/Crew: Steve Guttenberg, Adam Baldwin, Rutger Hauer, C. Thomas Howell, Peter Weller, and Alex Kingston.
