Out in the UK on October 18th, Captain Phillips comes from director Paul Greengrass (The Bourne Trilogy) and it is the fantastic directors take of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.

A big fan of Greengrass’s work we recommend you take a look at the trailed below and then read on

The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi).  Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control.
