First Trailer for Robert Zemeckis' Live-Action Film Return with 'Flight'
"The way you landed that plane is nothing short of a miracle." It's been over a decade since we've seen a live-action film from Robert Zemeckis (after Beowulf, The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol became the director's focus), and ironically enough, that film was Cast Away, which followed Tom Hanks trying to survive on a desert island after a plane crash. Now the director is back to live-action filmmaking with a film that has a plane crash being prevented as the catalyst for a powerful drama starring Denzel Washington. The first trailer is here and it is quite something, quite a lot to take in, yet looks fascinating and quite good.
Here's the first trailer for Robert Zemeckis' Flight, originally in high def from Apple:
Flight marks the return of Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Cast Away) to live-action filmmaking after diving into motion-capture films like A Christmas Carol, The Polar Express and Beowulf. Written by John Gatins (Real Steel, Coach Carter), the film follows an airline pilot (Denzel Washington) who saves a flight from crashing, but an investigation into the malfunctions reveals something troubling about how the events unfolded. Don Cheadle, John Goodman, James Badge Dale, Melissa Leo and more star in the film which Paramount Pictures is sending to theaters on November 2nd this fall. Your thoughts?
