Airplanes are bloody scary. I personally get anxiety just watching a plane. Sure. The world has opened up thanks to air travel and it’s one of the safest ways to travel. But when incidents happen, all you can do is strap yourselves in and accept your fate. See, bloody scary. Though accidents and fatal plane crashes happen very rarely compared to the hundreds of flights that take place per year, the panic and fear is still there.
What would you do if your plane crashed? That’s the topic of upcoming fim Sully.
For pilot Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger, January 15th would be no ordinary day as both of his engines were blighted. Deciding they would not make it to the airfield, Sully lands his plane on the Hudson river – ensuring all passengers and crew were rescued before then evacuating. The reserved pilot is then thrown into a media storm that could leave him questioning everything…
Directed by Clint Eastwood and also starring Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart, , the film focuses more on the aftermath of the accident in the same way Flight was, looking to blame Sully as a pilot to absolve the company of guilt. In any case, the film looks terrifically poignant and I had chills just thinking about it.
Plus this is Tom Hanks, who is always…just…so good.
What do you think?
SULLY IS OUT LATER THIS YEAR!
