Thanks to Sony Pictures, here’s the latest movie trailer of Captain Phillips, the upcoming action drama movie starring Tom Hanks that relates the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama:
“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 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 (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.”
Those Somali pirates tried to hijack the wrong boat! Captain Phillips is no stupid weakling he will outmaneuver those illiterate shortsighted pirates!
In theaters: October 11, 2013.
