IMAX is excited to announce that Captain Phillip™ will arrive to IMAX® theatres worldwide starting October 11.
Director Paul Greengrass presents Captain Phillips through a distinctive lens – turning a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama into a pulse-pounding thriller. Check out the trailer below:
Captain Phillips stars Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks as Captain Richard Phillips and Barkhad Abdi as the Somali pirate captain Muse. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
The film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.
Captain Phillips arrives to select IMAX® theatres Friday! Click here to purchase your tickets and check out participating theatres below:
