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?

I remember when this happened. I was sitting at my desk at work and I saw the plane floating down the Hudson - did a major double take. Hopefully this will be in the movie....

Looks like another immaculate direction by Eastwood. And this should be well worth the viewing in IMAX.

There's a MOVIE about this? Seriously? What could they possibly do for 2 hours. Clint, give it up man and talk to the chair.

Watch Flight. It's possibleZ

*rolls eyes* Do you know the whole story at all? There was drama during and after. It sure exactly makes for a good story. Get your stick out of your ass. Sheesh.
Sascha Dikiciyan on Aug 20, 2016
Yeah, I know the whole story. It was explained to death in bad episode of Dateline. What more could there possibly be to this story? BREAKING NEWS: the airline tried to cover their butts. If you think it'll be worth it, go for it!
Charles Knowlton on Aug 22, 2016
That stick still up there? No one forces u to watch this. The fact that they tried to put this on the one person who actually saved people is what makes this interesting. No one gives a shit if you think it's worthless.

This looks like it will be a completely inoffensive joint that will compel for one viewing and do its thing well. I think it's pretty crazy how many films Eastwood is able to make.

Ah, the corrupt nature of the human condition. This man safely lands an airplane in the water to save everybody on board and the higher ups try to make him the scapegoat so they won't have to shoulder any blame for why the plane malfunctioned to such a degree he was forced to 'ditch' it in the river. It looks well done and I admire Eastwood and Hanks for telling this shameful story of how they tried to railroad an honest-to-goodness, for real hero. Pretty ugly stuff.

I was a huge Clint Eastwood fan, until I knew he was a Trump supporter.

I was a huge Leonardo Decaprio fan until I found out he was a Hillary supporter
Doug on Aug 19, 2016
Fair enough. But Dicaprio is more talented than Decaprio anyway. ;D
tarek on Aug 20, 2016
These folks do need to be corrected, tarek, in the simplest of spelling and so forth. Tough road to travel though as they all seem to be in need of that. Now, I'm going to bow out of this as it has absolutely nothing to do with this movie and this thread...lol...
Bo on Aug 20, 2016
;D Always a pleasure to read you Bo. Take care.
tarek on Aug 22, 2016
Likewise, tarek. Likewise. Don't forget to tune me in to your observations and opinions when you see Bourne. When, Tuesday did you say? Tomorrow?
Bo on Aug 22, 2016
Yep! This time, i won't miss out. ( I hope so ;D)
tarek on Aug 22, 2016
I wait with bated breathe...just what the hell that means I don't know, but I've always heard it....Hmmmmm....later.

Hey Bo. I am back with crusty news. ;D Here is my short review [SPOILER ALERT] . . . . 9 years After the 3rd and final installment of the perfect Bourne trilogy, which concluded magisterially the redemptive journey of a Jason, looking for answers and forgiveness for his sins, what new element could be brought to the table in this new installment? The answer is: nothing, or almost nothing. The story, anchored this time in a less sweetened and familiar universe, starts slowly, setting the opening scene in Eastern Europe whose daily lives are made of gray sky and cockfighting. Bourne became a member of a fight club, maybe to earn some money, but more likely to help himself forget the loss of his beloved one and the horror he went through, by inflicting to himself physical pain, to relieve his psychological pain. Nicky is no longer this liaison so fragile we all know and love. She has embraced the underground world of hackers. Is it in order to find the last piece of the puzzle that could help Jason recover his memory completely, even if it should destroy him emotionally, or is it a leap of consciousness that pushes her to fight her former employer? The first ten minutes are a slow burner just the way I like. Little dialogue, a sordid atmosphere and an intrigue that catches our attention, all backed by a still effective music by the talented John Powell. Past ten minutes, the scenario gradually starts to skid to a less serious ground, fingering a non-stop series of "WTF Moments". For example, we picture Heather Lee, head of cyber security at the CIA, (performed by Alicia vickander) as an absolutely incompetent IT (the firewall of the CIA is as effective as a Windows firewall) who turns within 5 mn into an absolute genius (she succeeds in implanting a troyan in the computer of Nicky), and shutting down remotely the power of the hackers lair, making them (and us) sound like absolute morons. I have never seen before someone shutting down a laptop simply by unplugging the power cord… Action scenes are a real roller coaster (maybe too much?). Technically, they are perfect, but most of the time, they sound either déjà vu or phony and completely implausible and incoherent. If I looked at my feet twice in the second act ( and they aren’t even sexy), the third act made me want to pull out my cell to play a quiz, as the improbable has reached a new peak of glory. At some point in the end, I thought I was watching a Michael Bay movie. When you see an armored SWAT car fleeing a Hyundai elantra ( well, it’s not this model, but something similar), which ends at some point on top of its roof a la Fast and Furious, you can’t hold yourself from thinking to yourself : “ the screenwriter has a good dealer”. I don’t want to draw in this critique Vincent Cassel, who was supposed to be an absolute weapon. But who behaved like a Jason Statham whom a hotdog was stolen from. Long story short, I would need as many pages as the scenario of Jason Bourne to tour its inconsistencies and weaknesses. Rating: 2/5 ( 1 for Julia Stiles, because I have a crush on her. Don’t tell that to my wife)
tarek on Aug 24, 2016
Don't worry, I won't tell your wife...lol...I don't have like a crush on Julia Stiles, but I really liked her character, Nicki, in these films and am totally bummed they killed her off in the first part of the movie. Like they killed off the gal from the first film in the beginning of the second film. That was kind of understandable, from a writer's pop, in that they couldn't have him dragging her around again and killing her also gets the audience to really, really hate the bad guys. So they did it again for that same reason, I would assume, so they are repeating themselves way too obvious for me. Plus, Nicki served a very different purpose in the films and could have and should have, in my opinion, continued to do so. So they made a major mistake as far as I'm concerned. I enjoyed reading your brief view on the film and because I've read a lot about it, different reviews, etc. and seen so much footage, it seemed to me to be just about what you said it was. So thanks. Now, a personal question. Who, or what is the photo you post next to your name and why did you choose it? I am fascinated by these little 'human interest points', if you will. And is tarek your real name or a fake computer one...and if so...why that name? Just harmlessly curious is all. Cheers. And thanks again.

Tarek is my real name. As for the avatar i am using, it's the picture of Nathan Drake ( the main protagonist of Uncharted, a videogame) with the face of Nicolaj Coster-Waldau. I made it with Photoshop for the fun.
tarek on Aug 24, 2016
Thanks, tarek...my curiosity itch has now been scratched..lol...He's the dude who does his sister on Game of Thrones...now I recognize him...hell, I couldn't do that whole Photoshop thing if my life depended on it, which it doesn't thank whatever gods that be. Later.
Bo on Aug 24, 2016
I see Aaron Eckhart is playing in some decent film. Good for him. As for the film, I don't know the story, but it probably isn't something new, to cast a blame on someone because there is a possibility for it. That's always engaging to follow ...
