Extended TV Spot for CAPTAIN PHILLIPS Starring Tom Hanks


During last night’s series finale of Breaking Bad, AMC ran an extended TV spot for Paul Greengrass’ new dramatic thriller, Captain Phillips.  Tom Hanks plays the eponymous captain whose vessel, a container ship, was attacked by Somali pirates in 2009.  I saw the film at NYFF last week, and was a little let down by it, so this TV spot doesn’t do anything for me.  For the most part, it’s not misleading, and it doesn’t really give anything away.  As I said in my review, Captain Phillips is probably better if you’re unaware of Richard Phillips’ fate.
