FILM TRAILER: CAPTAIN PHILLIPS – STARRING TOM HANKS (HOLLYWOOD’S LONG AWAITED SOMALI PIRATE MOVIE)

I posted news about this film in 2011 when there was a casting call for Somali actors to play the pirates.  And now the ‘Captain Phillips’ story is finally here in all it’s “Hollywood glory”.

The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.

Hmmmm…… I can already see where this is likely to go but I will try to reserve judgement until I have actually seen the film.
