About this Film

When the MV Maersk Alabama was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009, it was the first time in 200 years that an American ship and its crew had been held to ransom.

Action thriller 'Captain Phillips', starring Tom Hanks, recounts the incredible true story of how the crew escaped the captors whilst their captain was held hostage, sparking a dramatic joint operation by the US Special Forces and Navy.

'Captain Phillips' also stars Catherine Keener (The Interpreter) and Christopher Stadulis (Jack Reacher).

Great Film
