It’s been a long time coming; Back to the Future director Robert Zemeckis has been heavily experimenting with motion capture in such films as The Polar Express and A Christmas Carol. But he’s finally back to the live-action format and bringing on board one of Hollywood’s finest actors with Flight.
The drama sees Denzel Washington as an airline pilot who successfully lands a crashing plane, only to have his alcholism come back to haunt him. It certainly looks like the type of dramatic work that could lead to some awards. I’m mostly intrigued at where the story goes, with the structure of the plane crash happening early on in the film. With a great ensemble including John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo, James Badge Dale, Brian Geraghty and Bruce Greenwood, one can see the trailer, featuring The Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter, below via Apple.
In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane?
