The true story of Captain Richard Phillips, played by Tom Hanks, and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
Director Paul Greengrass definitely knows his way around re-enactments. The director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum also tackled the ’72 civil rights massacre that took place in Ireland in Bloody Sunday and he gave us a chilling account of a hijacked plane during 9/11 in the chilling United 93.
This looks great.
