June 29, 2016 – Universal Studios.  One of the actors, above, engaging the audience and explaining what is about to happen.  Waterworld is a story set in a  future in which Global Warming has melted the ice-caps and Earth is almost entirely under water.  The Mariner is a loner mutated to have working gills, and he happens to be in the right place and right time to help a woman and child to survive an attack by the Smokers and find dry land.  The actual 1995 movie is directed by Kevin Reynolds and stars Kevin Costner as the Mariner, Jeanne Tripplehorn as Helen, and Tina Majorino as the child with the map to dry land etched on her back.
