Tom Hanks is going Oscar-bait again with Captain Phillips, Paul Greengrass’ first movie since 2010’s Green Zone. Now a new trailer has been released, giving us a feel for the movie’s shaky-cam style as well a bit slightly bigger insight into Hanks’ character than we’ve had before.
The movie 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.
The film is due out in the US in October.
