Captain Phillips (2013)

Captain Phillips is a new drama based on the true story of a ship captain in 2009 whose ship was boarded by Somali pirates. His ship was the first American one to be hijacked in 200 years. Loser.

The cargo ship’s captain, Richard Phillips, was a relatively normal guy. Married with two kids, he wasn’t exactly Jack Sparrow. When his ship was boarded he did what he could to save the people on his ship, even risking his life time and again to fight the bad guys. The trailer looks intense as hell.

Paul Greengrass is the director of Captain Phillips, and he’s got a pretty good history of quality films. He made a couple Bourne films with Matt Damon, then made Green Zone, which wasn’t half bad. He definitely knows how to make an exciting film, with plenty of up close action to make you shit yourself.
