New Captain Phillips Trailer: Castaway’d Again

The first Captain Phillips trailer gave us a solid intro — Tom Hanks, Boston accent, true account of Somali pirates hijacking the Maersk Alabama cargo ship back in 2009. In the new trailer, we learn some more: Hanks will get voted off the boat and spend some time in a smaller, yellower boat. He'll also have some bonding time with the pirate leader, leading to questions of terrorist negotiation, American exceptionalism, fun stuff like that. Directed by Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Ultimatum, United 93), Captain Phillips opens Oct. 11.
