Captain Phillips – Mesmerizing Geopolitical Thriller

Posted 8 years ago by myetvmedia

Greengrass decided to film most of the movie on the open sea and to keep the actors in the two worlds apart until the moment of conflict.  In an interview at the London International Film Festival he admits it was “extremely dangerous water work and my heart was certainly in my mouth on more than one occasion but thankfully no one was hurt”. Tom Hanks says he and his crew were genuinely terrified when the Somali actors first confronted them waving automatic weapons with their skinny arms.


Captain Phillips from Sony Pictures is the top seller on iTunes, released on Blu Ray and back in theatres. The world premiere was held at the 51st NYFF where it was the Opening Night Gala film. Paul Greengrass was also featured in the NYFF51: HBO Directors Dialogues
