Tom Hanks Outwits Pirates in New 'Captain Phillips' Theatrical Trailer
"The Navy is not going to let you win. They would rather sink this boat than let you win." Columbia Pictures has revealed another new trailer for Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks in the true story of a shipping vessel overtaken by Somali pirates. We featured the first trailer back in May and it looked riveting then, but this takes things to a whole new level. I dig the way this trailer builds, with the perfect score that enhances the suspense and intensity. I'm fascinated by the dialogue between Captain Phillips and the other pirate Captain, I'm curious to see how their battle of wits plays out. Looking forward to seeing this.
Here's the second theatrical trailer for Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips, originally from Yahoo:
Tells the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. Phillips spent three days as a hostage of the Somali pirates before being rescued by Navy SEALs in a raid. His heroic exploits landed him a book deal and it's Phillips' own memoir, A Captain's Story: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs and Dangerous Days at Sea, that was optioned by Sony. Captain Phillips is directed by Paul Greengrass, of the Bourne Trilogy, Bloody Sunday, United 93 and Green Zone previously. The screenplay was written by Billy Ray (Flightplan, Breach, State of Play). The film arrives in theaters on October 11th later this year.

This trailer gave away too much. I know this is based on a true story, but come on. Hollywood why must you ruin everything?

I like that pirates aren't made out to be one dimensional carboard cutout baddies.

Was really hoping they'd give the Somali actors to play developed and enhanced characters - especially the captain, and not just make them out to be drones who happened to want a large boat one day. Looks like they've pulled it off, can't wait to see it ... "maybe in America, maybe in America".

Great to see Hanks in the kind of role that he's best at.
