Watch: Second Trailer for Clint Eastwood's 'Sully' Starring Tom Hanks
"This is the Captain - brace for impact." Warner Bros has debuted a second trailer, specifically an "IMAX trailer", for Clint Eastwood's new film Sully, starring Tom Hanks as the famed pilot. The film examines the "untold" true story of Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger, the commercial airline pilot who safely and successfully 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 another impressive trailer like the first one. Not only does it open with Eastwood talking about the film, but the way it intercuts between the airplane going down and the rest of the drama (before and after) is quite gripping. Maybe this movie will be pretty good after all.
Here's the second 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?
