Captain Phillips Trailer With Tom Hanks

Captain Phillips Trailer: Tom Hanks Gets Hijacked on the High Seas

Tom Hanks takes the lead in Captain Phillips, the trailer that already has me swearing off any future ocean escapades. Hanks plays Captain Richard Phillips in the terrifying true story of the Maersk Alabama, a ship that was commandeered by Somali pirates in 2009. The trailer really builds the tension, starting slowly and quietly as Phillips notices two dots approaching his ship on the radar screen. He knows the passengers are "not here to fish."

I couldn't help but shrink into my seat watching this trailer, and I'm not sure I could handle the whole harrowing movie. Although, given that one my my favorite actors of all time is in the lead role, I'm gonna have to chance it. Captain Phillips opens Oct. 11. Until then, watch the trailer after the jump.
