Before there was Titanic–there was The Poseidon Adventure. This multiple Oscar®-nominee (including a win for Best Song) set the standard for seagoing disaster films. As the luxury liner Poseidon charts its course on New Year's Eve, disaster strikes when an undersea earthquake causes a titanic tidal wave and capsizes the vessel, leaving just 10 survivors. Led by a no-nonsense reverend, the group must maneuver through airshafts, electrical cables and a burning engine room to the boat's hull, which is their lone chance for escape.
