Sully trailer – Hanks flying toward more Oscar gold

Sully trailer has Hanks building aerial thriller

With Tom Hanks collaborating with Clint Eastwood, you might as well pencil Sully in for Oscar nominations already.

Sully is based on the ‘Miracle on the Hudson’ where Capt. Sullenberger successfully glided a disabled plane onto the Hudson River with all 155 passengers’ lives intact.

Hopefully for the filmmakers enough time has passed between now and Flight, the Denzel Washington film with a very similar premise.

Still if anyone can pull off a familiar plot it’s Hanks (Bridge of Spies) and Eastwood (American Sniper). The cast is pretty well stocked as well with Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney in major supporting roles. Sully is based off the Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow’s novel Highest Duty.



Sully lands in theaters September 9.
