Shailene Woodley's Distress Call Goes Unanswered in Harrowing 'Adrift' Clip (Exclusive)

ET has an exclusive look at the survival story, which stars Woodley and Sam Claflin as a couple who get lost at sea.

"Mayday! Mayday!" Tami (Shailene Woodley) cries out in this exclusive clip from Adrift. "Does anyone copy? Hello?! Our last recorded position was 129 degrees West and latitude 12 North. Does anyone copy? HELLO?!"

The romance-turned-survival story centers on a couple, Tami and Richard (Sam Claflin), tasked with chartering a sailboat 4,000 miles across the ocean and inadvertently sailing directly into a category four hurricane. From director Baltasar Kormákur (Everest), Adrift, out June 1, is based on real events and follows the fight for survival after the 40-foot waves and deadly winds have passed and left their boat wrecked, as in this clip with Tami calling for help and only receiving static in response.

Ascending above deck to attempt the distress call from a secondary radio, she cries, "Mayday! Mayday…," as she shakes the waterlogged receiver to no avail. "Is anybody there? Our boat is sinking..."
