Ever since 2010’s Green Zone, director Paul Greengrass has been signing onto and dropping out of a seemingly endless succession of projects. However now he’s actually made a movie, teaming up with Tom Hanks for Captain Phillips. Now the first trailer for the movie has arrived.
The project is based on the true story of Maresk Alabama captain Richard Phillips (Hanks), who sacrificed himself to be taken hostage by Somali pirates, so he could save the lives of his crew. He spent three days in captivity before being rescued by a Navy SEAL team in 2009.
It’s currently due out in the US in October.
