Captain Phillips – Official Movie Trailer 2013

Captain Phillips
It wouldn’t be a real award season without a Tom Hanks film.
The latest film starring Tom Hanks is based on the 2009 true story of Captain Richard Phillips, who was Captain of a ship that was hijacked by Somali Pirates. The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Greengrass. Who is best known for his work on the action films The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum and the action Drama Green Zone. Based on the trailer, this latest film titled Captain Phillips looks like more of a drama than an all out action film, but it still features Greengrass’s trademark thrils.
The trailer definitely looks to be a well rounded examination of the real-life events. It even appears to have a hint of sympathy at the financially strapped pirates, who are looking to simply make a better lives for themselves with these actions.

It will be interesting to see if audiences will respond to the film. A Tom Hanks fronted film in the past usually meant big box office as well as critical kudos. But his latest films Cloud Atlas and Larry Crowne under performed at the box office and underwhelmed the usually gushing critics.
Captain Phillips stars Tom Hanks, and Catherine Keener. The screenplay is written by Billy Ray and the film is directed by Paul Greengrass. Captain Phillips is scheduled for release October 11th, 2013.
