New 'Captain Phillips' Trailer Shows Two Sides Of The Story

When you're talking about the director of The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum, the last thing you might be thinking is "wize, evenhanded political pieces", but that's exactly what we get with Paul Greengrass, the man who also gave us United 9898 was a 9/11 related film, and I don't have to tell you how problematic that could have been.  But it was evenhanded for every party involved and we got a wonderful film.  It looks to be the same case with Captain Phillips.

In some ways, this had the potential to be more controversial than United 98.  After all, people tend to sympathize more with destitute Somalian pirates than members of Al Quaida.  Greengrass seems to have realized this, though, and so he's turned the film into something more than "evil un-white men attack Americans get shot YAY!"  Let's hope that the final product doesn't botch the great setup.

Captain Phillips will be released on Oct. 11th.  It stars Tom Hanks.
