Watch: Official Trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Sully' Starring Tom Hanks
"I want you to know, I did the best I could." Warner Bros has unveiled a trailer for Clint Eastwood's latest film, titled Sully, telling the "untold" true story of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, played by Tom Hanks. Captain Sully is the pilot who successfully and safely glided a malfunctioning US Airways airplane into the Hudson River in 2009 in order to save the lives of everyone onboard. The film also stars Aaron Eckhart as Sully's co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Laura Linney as Sully's wife, Lorraine Sullenberger. This is an intriguing trailer, it cuts smoothly between the time after the landing and before, showing bits of Sully's life leading up to and directly after. I really like the way this trailer plays out, looking forward to seeing this.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Clint Eastwood's Sully, direct from WB's YouTube:
On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain "Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career. Sully is directed by veteran actor/filmmaker Clint Eastwood, of Gran Torino, Invictus, Hereafter, J. Edgar, Jersey Boys and American Sniper most recently. The script is by Todd Komarnicki, adapted from the book. Warner Bros will open Eastwood's Sully in theaters starting September 9th this fall. Thoughts?
