The actress, 37, had the pleasure of walking the red carpet with her beloved stepdad, Kurt Russell – who’s also her costar in the thriller.
The film is based on the real-life Gulf Coast oil rig, named Deepwater Horizon, that burst into flames on April 20, 2010, causing one of the worst environmental man made disasters in history. It also stars Mark Wahlberg, Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez and John Malkovich.
Hudson stars as Felicia Williams, Deepwater Horizon oil rig engineer Mike Williams’ (Wahlberg) wife in the inspired-by-true-events film. Russell, meanwhile, plays Jimmy “Mr. Jimmy” Harrell, the boss of the rig.

Hudson commemorated working with her dad with a sweet post on her Instagram Tuesday.
This will be the first time the stepdad and stepdaughter will appear together onscreen. Speaking about working with Russell on the film, Hudson recently told Entertainment Tonight, “I got to see Mark [Wahlberg] and my pa, Kurt, together. I’m biased obviously – it’s my dad – but I just thought, ‘What a great combination they are!’ ”
She also revealed that while this is the first time the two have worked together, she’s always reminded of Russell when she does a movie.
“Growing up watching him work, he’s such a pro and I think it was a great lesson for me when I was younger as to what kind of actress I wanted to be and the person on set I wanted to be,” Hudson said. “I just love everything he’s done.”
