New York Film Festival : videos, photos & reviews
September 28, 2013 - 0 comment
"Hanks, meanwhile, is a revelation all over again, giving his best performance in at least a decade, possibly two. Simply put, Captain Phillips would not function without Hanks. Whether he’s doing basic captain duties, corralling his crew to ward off pirates, playing a duplicitous helper dropping subtle hints to his crew, or a frightened man carefully attempting to create dissent among the ranks of the pirates, Hanks is always convincing. The actor particularly excels in his line delivery, striking a difficult balance between gaining trust with some while simultaneously alienating others." - Forrest Cardamenis, The Film Stage -
Most of these reviews praise the last five minutes of the movie and Tom Hanks's performance in that last scene saying it could well be "the most raw, emotional acting he's ever delivered on screen." During the post-screening press Q&A, Tom Hanks and Paul Greengrass explained that this scene has been improvised on the spot from an intuition they both shared. Also, real crew members of the USS Bainbridge appear beside Tom Hanks in that scene, not actors. You can watch extracts from that Q&A in our videos, in which they explain how they shot this scene. We've also added a red carpet interview of Tom Hanks as well as two new TV spots that offer some new footage.

We are just two days away from the New York Film Festival where Captain Phillips will premiere. In the meantime, Tom Hanks has appeared on the cover of Parade Magazine on September 22 and will be on the cover of Hollywood Reporter on October 4 along with co-star Barkhad Abdi. You can see these two covers in our gallery and read the articles in our press archive.
We've also added a quote from Paul Greengrass who talked to Parade magazine about working with Tom Hanks. You can read the full quote in our Quote from others section.
"I just love him as an actor. He’s given me so many of my treasured moments in the cinema. [...] We did it in just a couple of takes; it felt intensely real. [...] Tom has that ability to be so entirely in the moment." - Paul Greengrass -
These two magazines also published photoshoots of Tom Hanks with the real Captain Phillips and with Barkhad Abdi. You can click on each thumbnail to access the respective photoshoot. Hollywood Reporter even has a video interview of Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi. You can watch it here.
Five new movie stills have also been revealed by Sony Pictures. You can click on the thumbnails to see them in our gallery.

A new TV spot for Captain Phillips, entitled "Survival", has been released by the studio. There aren't really any new images from the movie but you can still watch it and download it in HD in our videos.
We've added to our audio files a short interview from June 2013 where Tom Hanks talks with Hollywood Outbreak about the filming of Captain Phillips and what it was like to shoot on an actual ship that would leave port and come back every day.
Also, a Korean poster for the movie was released. It features a new picture of Tom Hanks. You can see it in our gallery by clicking on the image.
