Tom Hanks plays Maersk Alabama captain Richard Phillips in CAPTAIN PHILLIPS.

Captain Phillips... Check out the newest trailer for Paul Greengrass' upcoming film Captain Phillips...which is about the 2009 hijacking of the American cargo ship Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates in the Indian Ocean. The reason why this movie is exciting enough for me to post screenshots from the preview is because of how the actual event ended: Like in Zero Dark Thirty, the heroism of U.S. Navy SEALs is on display when they are able to free Captain Richard Phillips from the marauders. In case you don't know how he was released from captivity, wait till the flick gets released in theaters nationwide (on October 11) to find out. It's pretty awesome how Phillips' liberation took place. One shot. One kill.

Water hoses aboard the Maersk Alabama are activated to thwart Somali pirates from approaching the cargo ship in CAPTAIN PHILLIPS.
