Director Baltasar Kormákur has a thing for disaster movies – but ones based on real events. Adrift, starring Shailene Woodley and Sam Claflin is his latest.

The guy who gave us The Deep and Everest takes on the true-to-life survival tale of a young couple’s ocean adventure that becomes all the more “exciting” as they sail into one of the most full-on hurricanes in recorded history.

Adrift is set to cruise into Aussie cinemas on June 28.
