Captain Phillips

We've already seen the first trailer for Captain Phillips, the adaptation of the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and his days spent as a hostage on an American cargo ship taken over by Somali pirates, and the film looks like quite the drama. Now the film from Paul Greengrass gets some hype fit for the wall with a new domestic and international poster for the film starring Tom Hanks. The domestic poster features a couple of the pirates climbing up the side of the MV Maersk Alabama while the other features a worried but composed Hanks already in the clutches of the pirates, one seemingly photobombing. Look!

Here are the two posters for Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips from the film's Facebook page:

Captain Phillips

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.

Yeah! They have the SEAL that made that shot on the History show called TOP SHOT. His neck is thicker than my thigh. Certified badass.
