The movie is based on the autobiography Highest Duty by Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger. The story is about Sully heroically landing the troubled US Airways Flight 1549 full of passengers on the Hudson River after dual engine failure.
The trailer for the movie has been released. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow proudly present this real story to the viewers. We see the busy New York City and hear the flight operator clearing the US Airways Flight 1549 for take-off.
We see Tom Hanks, seasoned and white haired with a complimenting white moustache looking distantly. We can guess that he is reviewing the events in his mind when someone calls him from behind. The scene then diverts to inside of the plane’s cockpit where his co-pilot is calling his name while we see people panicking and screaming and the plane is going down.
Someone calls him out of his thoughts and he jerks a little bit. The person asks him ‘where are you’. The scene changes to the airport. We then his voiceover while he boards the plane and takes charge in the cockpit.
His voice says that no one warned them. No one told them that the plane was going to lose both engines at a lower altitude than any jet in history. He explains that this incident was a dual engine loss at 28,000 feet followed by immediate water landing with 155 souls on board. No one has trained for an incident like that. We see the plane taking off.
We then see Sully running in Times Square and a voice tells Sully and his co-pilot played by Aaron Eckhart that their job is to investigate what happened. Eckhart’s character scoffs. Sully explains that it was not a crash. It was a forced water landing. An officer says that simulation shows that they could have made it back to the airport.
Sully says that it was not possible because he felt it go. We then get back to the aircraft while they are going down and he says my plane and his co-pilot agrees. He tells Laura Linney’s character that he wants her to know that he did the best he could. She says that of course he did. She tells him that he saved everyone.
A reporter tells him that he is being hailed as a hero. He says that he doesn’t feel like a hero. He says that he is not used to all this attention. Another man tells him that the left engine was still working. He then questions if he was wrong and he had endangered the lives of all those people. He is asked in an inquiry when his last drink was and was he facing any problems at home.
We see Sully in the plane telling his passengers to brace for impact and they all keep their heads down as told by the air hostesses. Laura Linney’s character tells him that there were 155 people on that plane and he was one of them. Sully says that he has been in the air for 40 years but he will be judged by the 208 seconds of the incident. We see him checking the plane calling out.
The movie title appears with the date of release on September 9th. The movie will also release on IMAX.
