This is going to be so, so good. Remember the 2009 hijacking of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates? How could you forget, especially the dramatic Easter Sunday rescue mission on the high seas by U.S. Navy sharpshooters. Anyway, Columbia Pictures adapted the story into a feature film directed by a Paul Greengrass. It stars Tom Hanks as the captain of the MV Maersk Alabama cargo ship, along with Catherine Keener, Max Martini, Yul Vazquez, Michael Chernus, Chris Mulkey, Corey Johnson, David Warshofsky, John Magaro and Angus MacInnes. Release is scheduled for October 11th.
Meanwhile, the first trailer just hit the Internet. Check it out.
