The first official trailer for the movie Captain Phillips directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Trilogy, United 93...) has just been released. It's bracing, exciting, riveting and it is considered by many as another Oscar contending role for Tom Hanks. You can watch it in our videos by clicking on the thumbnails below.
Update: the trailer is now available in HD.
The movie is based on Richard Phillips's memoir A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea and tells the story of Capt. Richard Phillips, the leader of the cargo ship Maersk Alabama who gave himself up as a hostage to Somali pirates to keep his crew from having to leave the ship with them. After three days alone with the armed pirates in a small lifeboat, Phillips was saved by Navy SEALS who staged a raid that left three captors dead and another in custody.
The script was written by Billy Ray (Hart's War, Flightplan, State of Play…). The movie is produced by the team behind The Social Network, that is to say Scott Rudin, Michael De Luca, Dana Brunetti and Kevin Spacey.
The movie will hit threater on October 11, 2013 in the United States and in the United Kingdom.
