Deepwater Horizon VR App Is A Treat

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017 by | Filed Under: Android, App Reviews, iOS

Apps have the potential to change the way we interact with movies forever. Take the groundbreaking virtual reality app for Deepwater Horizon. This app takes film commentary to the next level featuring three special sequences from the epic action disaster film.  Deepwater Horizon  chronicles the April 2010 oil rig disaster that created the worst oil spill in U.S. history. It stars Mark Wahlberg and  Kate Hudson,  Hudson’s father Kurt Russell also stars along with John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’ Brien, and Ethan Suplee.

This new (iOS and Android mobile) that puts viewers in the same room as director Peter Berg for exclusive commentary from editor Colby Parker Jr. Created by SubVRsive in partnership with Lionsgate, viewers will be surrounded by renderings and sketches of the various special effects used in the film, as Berg and Parker Jr. reference them.

The first scene is fully accessible when  the  app  is  downloaded  and  the  additional  scenes  are  unlocked  using  audio  recognition  while  viewing Deepwater Horizon. The app can be used on an iPhone or Android smartphone with a compatible virtual reality viewing device such as Google Cardboard, which should be used while seated.  Alternately, users without a mobile VR viewer can enjoy the  experience  in  360  video  mode.  All  instructions  included  with  the  compatible  VR  viewing  device  should  be followed before use and such use should not continue if any discomfort or health reactions are experienced.
