Sony Pictures has released a new Japanese trailer for director Paul Greengrass’ action thriller “Captain Phillips.” The film stars Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Max Martini, Corey Johnson, Chris Mulkey, David Warshofsky, Yul Vazquez.
The movie is based upon the book: A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty
Captain Phillips is director Paul Greengrass’s multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through Greengrass’s distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control.
“Captain Phillips” is set to open in theaters on October 11, 2013.
