These days, most movies based on giant news stories are produced and released with shocking swiftness (often to their detriment).
That's not the case with Captain Phillips, which tells the story of the famous 2009 Somali pirate kidnapping.
Watch the Captain Phillips trailer, starring Tom Hanks:
Hanks stars as Captain Richard Phillips, who was in charge of the Maersk Alabama when it was boarded by pirates off the coast of Somalia.
Catherine Keener, Max Martini, Yul Vazquez, and Chris Mulkey also star. Captain Phillips comes out October 11.
