“Bourne” director Paul Greengrass takes to the seas in “Captain Phillips”, the true story of that American cargo ship that was hijacked by Somali pirates a few years back. As I recall, that didn’t quite work out for the pirates, since some Navy SEALs guys eventually got involved. When Navy SEALs gets involved in something, it usually doesn’t turn out well for the guy on the other side. Just sayin’.
Check out two new posters for “Captain Phillips”, starring Hanks. Most of the film, of course, takes place on the seas, which means when you complain that director Paul Greengrass’ camerawork is making you seasick, it’ll all be part of the movie watching experience.
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, 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.
