Captain Phillips is the true story of Richard Phillips who allowed himself to be taken hostage by Somali Pirates in 2009 in exchange for the safety of his crew.
Paul Greengrass of the Jason Bourne series directs, but don’t expect Bourne style action scenes. Just incredibly tense torture and more intense hostage negotiations chatter. This is United 93 with a happy ending.
Opens October 11th.
