First trailer for Tom Hanks’ Captain Phillips

Tom Hanks stars in the new film from Paul Greengrass, based on the true life story of Captain Phillips...

Who fancies a wager? Because since we heard about the movie Captain Phillips, we’ve suspected it might just be Oscar bait. And we also suspect that it’s one of the leading candidates for a Best Picture nomination already. We say that having not seen it, we should point out. But the pedigree here is quite something.After all, Paul Greengrass, he of the good Bourne movies and United 93, is behind the camera. Tom Hanks, meanwhile, is in front of it, playing the title role. The movie tells the true story of when Somali pirates captured Captain Richard Phillips’ cargo ship in 2009. Phillips has been involved in putting together the script for the movie, and we’ve now got a first trailer for it too.The movie is due out in October. And we think this is shaping up to be something really quite special. Take a look…
