With Oscar®-winning special effects and an all-star cast (including Gene Hackman, Ernest Borgnine, Red Buttons, Roddy McDowall, Shelley Winters, Leslie Nielsen and many more), The Poseidon Adventure is the mother of all disaster movies. The Poseidon is the largest ocean liner ever, bigger than the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mary combined. A ship full of passengers are celebrating New Year's Eve. Just after the New Year is rung in, the Captain spots a tidal wave. A huge tidal wave. Soon, everybody else sees it, too. For almost all of the passengers and crew, it will be the last thing they ever see. The ship is capsized, turned completely upside-down, and only ten people have survived. Now those survivors must make their way from the capsized top of the ship up to the bottom before they drown as well.
