Captain Phillips Trailer Starring Tom Hanks
Tom Hanks returns to the screen this fall in Captain Phillips, a high-seas thriller based on the true story of the MV Maersk Alabama, which was hijacked by Somalian pirates in 2009. Directed by Paul Greengrass who also helmed both the Bourne Trilogy and United 93, he would seem a fitting choice to handle the background story which depicts the harrowing first hostile takeover of an American cargo vessel in two hundred years. Tom Hanks stars as Captain Richard Phillips, who also wrote several books after the ordeal. Look forward to Captain Phillips when it hits theaters October 13.
