Trailer for Captain Phillips (2013)
Captain Phillips (2013)
This film is based on the true story of when an American cargo ship was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. This was the first time that this had happened to an American cargo ship in 200 years.
Does anybody remember how America responded to this hijacking? Do you remember Captain Phillips?
It’s hard to believe that happened about 4 years ago.
If this movie follows the truth closely, I think that it might have the potential to be a quality film and an Oscar contender.
The film is directed by Paul Greengrass. Billy Ray wrote the screenplay, but Richard Phillips wrote the book “A Captain’s Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea” that it is all based off of.
The cast includes Tom Hanks, Catherine Keener, Max Martini, John Magaro, Chris Mulkey, Corey Johnson, David Warshofsky, Yul Vasquez, and Michael Chernus.
Hanks has not had a great part for a while. Could this be the movie that puts him back into the spotlight? I will have to be there when it releases to find out.
The film is set to release on 10/11/13.

Hadn’t heard about this film, yet. Thanks for the head’s up!
Of course, Cindy. Thanks for checking it out!
looks interesting. cant wait to see it
I wonder how it will do overseas. I hope it’s true to the events that ocurred. Thanks for the comment movierob!
since i live overseas, I can say that it probably wont do as well as it will in the states
Well, often times many movies don’t do as well overseas and I’m sure it will to better in the states, but I’m just curious to know if it does better than average overseas or worse. Being that I live in the states, I don’t really know how certain movies are perceived in other countries.
depends on the movie. big action movies, big name franchises or Major Oscar bait usually do well overseas
So where do you live?
That’s what I thought based on the wordpress stats.
I assume you live on the west coast and suffer from insomnia 🙂
Ha! I live in Minnesota. I’ve always kind of been a night owl.
whoa. never woulda guessed that. I grew up in Michigan, but have been here for over 20 years
Wow! That’s a huge change of scenery. Why the huge change?
long story. in a nutshell came here to study for one year, loved it and stayed
That’s pretty awesome. A very daring life-changing event.
It is getting pretty late. Nice chatting with you. Take it easy.
