Captain Phillips

Last night, the hit AMC drama series "Breaking Bad" came to an end, and since millions were watching, some of the big studios decided it was the best time to promote some movies. The most ambitious of which was a two-minute trailer for Captain Phillips starring Tom Hanks. Using a scene from the hijacking sequence before using a montage from bits of the rest of the film, this is easily the best trailer for the Paul Greengrass directed film yet. The true story just premiered at the New York Film Festival and it sounds like the performances turn the story into much more than you average hostage thriller. Plus, IMAX just announced the film will hit the giant screen the exact same day as regular theaters. Watch the trailer now!

Here's the new trailer for Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips from Sony Pictures:

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 month.

That was a good trailer, but it needed more Bryan Cranston and crystal meth...

This movie looks like an oscar contender for sure

As a ship's captain frequently trading in the Gulf of Aden area, I can vouch for the authenticity of the maritime and piracy scenes. In many respects they are terrifyingly lifelike. With the tragic recent events in Nairobiand East Africa over the last few days, the movie has become especially topical and relevant. For more intuitive background to this sad part of the world and the life of pirates and those seafarers working in the area, check out Amazon Books - 'The Megiddo Revenge'
