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.
