Tom Hanks may have been setting the YouTube community alight with his simply hilarious character David S. Pumpkins following his Saturday Night Live stint over Halloween weekend, but he has a much more serious upcoming role heading to our shores.
Sully, set for release in the UK on 2nd December, sees the veteran actor in yet another fascinating role, and leading to the film’s release we have the new poster. Here we get to see the man suited and booted as the real-life pilot who did the impossible on the Hudson River.
You can see the new poster below.
From Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood (“American Sniper,” “Million Dollar Baby”) comes drama “Sully: Miracle On The Hudson”, starring Oscar winner Tom Hanks (“Bridge of Spies,” “Forrest Gump”) as Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.
On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.
“Sully” also stars Aaron Eckhart (“Olympus Has Fallen,” “The Dark Knight”) as Sully’s co-pilot, Jeff Skiles, and Oscar nominee Laura Linney (“The Savages,” “Kinsey,” Showtime’s “The Big C”) as Sully’s wife, Lorraine Sullenberger.
Eastwood is directing the film from a screenplay by Todd Komarnicki, based on the book Sully: My Search For What Really Matters by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow. The project is being produced by Eastwood, Frank Marshall, Allyn Stewart and Tim Moore, with Kipp Nelson and Bruce Berman serving as executive producers.
The film reunites Eastwood with several of his longtime collaborators, who most recently worked with the director on the worldwide hit “American Sniper”: director of photography Tom Stern and production designer James J. Murakami, who were both Oscar-nominated for their work on “The Changeling”; costume designer Deborah Hopper; and editor Blu Murray.
