Here is the UK trailer for Captain Phillips featuring Tom Hanks in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips. In short, it’s a modern day pirate story featuring the one of the greatest living actors. Need we say more?

Synopsis: Columbia Pictures' action-thriller Captain Phillips stars two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. The film is directed by Oscar nominee Paul Greengrass (Bourne Ultimatum), from a screenplay by Billy Ray and based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.

Captain Phillips arrives October 11th, 2013.

Ok Trate. You're entitled to your am I to mine. But "one of the greatest living actors"...??? Jeez. Gush much? Some of think Hanks is merely OK. I think someone has a man crush going on.

DarkXid: the reason it's mentioned here is because it's TOM HANKS, dude. TOM HANKS: one of the greatest living actors!!! We know it's not genre...but damn!! TOM HANKS!!!

I remember following this story in the news and taking pride once again in the great job the US Navy Seals did. The genre for this movie would be biography, hey at least it's not a trailer for a Tyler Perry movie. Hanks might not make movies that I tend to gravitate towards but after Saving Private Ryan he will always have my respect.
