The movie focuses on the emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549
The intense 3 minute, IMAX trailer shows the emergency landing itself, which happened a matter of minutes after take-off. Tom Hanks is starring as the titular character, Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger, who was the captain responsible for the unconventional landing. But the movie won’t focus on the crash itself, it will actually be focusing on the lengthy investigation the pilots were put through afterwards. Trust me, director Clint Eastwood explains it much better, and I’m already hooked!
The movie also stars Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart, Anna Gunn, and Mike O’Malley. It comes out September 9th.
