Trailer of the Day: Captain Phillips (2013)

Thoughts on this:

  • Hanks looks pretty good. This seems like a good role for him: a grounded, true-life, life-or-death movie. The human-sized hero.
  • Paul Greengrass as director? I hope the movie is more “United 93” than, say, “Green Zone.”
  • I really need to see “Bloody Sunday,” Greengrass' first big movie, which was about the massacre of Irish protestors on Jan. 30, 1972; same as the U2 song.
  • Why oh why did Capt. Phillips have to be from Boston?

Opens October 11.
