Kurt Russell endured a bout with pneumonia. Josh Lucas was hospitalized twice, split his eye open and suffered three permanent scars. And although the lovely Emmy Rossum got to scuba dive, she also nearly drowned and suffered a concussion.
Wolfgang Petersen directed this remake of the 1972 film, 'The Poseidon Adventure,' which chronicles how passengers struggle to survive when a wave capsizes their cruise ship.
You can see if the cast's pain was well worth it, when 'Poseidon' sails into theaters on May 12.
