An incredible true story is brought to life in the first trailer for Captain Phillips, directed by Paul Greengrass. Tom Hanks plays the title character Richard Phillips, who, as captain of the MV Maresk Alabama, surrendered himself to Somali pirates, sacrificing himself for the safety of his crew in 2009. The ship was the first American vessel to be hijacked by Somalian pirates in over 200 years. Watch these events unfold in the latest footage from this upcoming drama, also starring Catherine Keener, John Magaro, Max Martini, and Yul Vazquez.
