"Captain Phillips"
The first trailer has arrived for Paul Greengrass' "Captain Phillips," starring Tom Hanks in the real-life story of the Maersk Alabama cargo ship that was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. 

The film is Greengrass' first since 2010's "Green Zone"; the director, best known for the second two "Bourne" installments in the original Matt Damon-starring trilogy, has been drawn to true stories before, directing the nail-biting 9/11 dramatization "United 93" in 2006.

Hanks was last seen in many guises in the Wachowskis' "Cloud Atlas" last fall.

"Captain Phillips" has an Oscar-friendly October 11 release date, via Sony.
