The first trailer for Robert Zemeckis' Flight starring Denzel Washington has landed

06.07.2012

Filmmaker Robert Zemeckis has ditched the dead-eyed mocap he's clung to for years now and returned to living, human actors on celluloid for his latest project FLIGHT starring Denzel Washington. Below we have the film's first trailer and poster, and while the film looks like it has the potential to be a nice return to form for Zemeckis, that last shot also happens to be pretty unintentionally hilarious. Not sure if that's an ill omen or what.

FLIGHT - starring Washington, John Goodman, Don Cheadle, James Badge Dale, Melissa Leo, and Bruce Greenwood - opens November 2nd.

Synopsis: 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?

The animation looks creepy

Even for a Zemeckis film, the characters look too lifelike.

"Whip Whitaker" for "Sully Sullenberger", perhaps?

The concept is very intriguing, it's great to see Zemeckis back in the real world where he belongs and also Denzel Washington in another great, believable blue-collar role.

So.. Denzel's brought around a runaway train, and now an out-of-control airplane. What's next, Titanic 2?

Loving the premise tho.. Its like someone watched too many of those 90s disaster situation movies and thought to themselves, "What happens after the day has been saved?"

Its about F*cking Time

To have Robert Zemeckis back to the real world! He's one of the very few directors who can do a Drama film this much intriguing, I liked the after rescue parts of CAST AWAY even more than the Robinson Crusoe parts....And he chose 2012 of all years to return, the year of (potential) GREAT MOVIES. Hoo-YAY!!

I take it a lot of people are going to avoid flying after watching this movie.

Between Castaway and this, I'd say Zemeckis knows how to stage a convincing plane crash.

Airframe, anyone?

Trailer looks awesome, but did anyone else notice similarities to the novel Airframe by Michael Crichton? I read that book a long time ago, but remember loving it.

Yup, I remember it too, though that was more an airline conspiracy right? Wow, just looked it up, that came out in 96! I remember Demi Moore was supposed to be in it and John McTeirnan directing but obviously never happened...

To the person who put together the poster for this movie: Try not to work too hard, man.

I don't know why you're getting thumbs down. You were at -3 earlier. The poster is so plain.

Having to land upside down because the bottom is falling off the fucking plane is about the most terrifying thing I can imagine.

Looks great: a non-political, non-shoot 'em up thriller? I'm sold.

Dig it.

Trailer is awesome. Didn't find the last shot hilarious at all. Don't know what George Merchan is smoking.

Looks like a slick piece of filmmaking to me.

The story appears to be handled in a rather fresh way. And I hope that the songs in the trailer represent the direction that the actual soundtrack is gonna take. Though Gimme Shelter should remain in the trailer, that's Martin Scorsese's track all the way.

Good to have you back Mr. Zemeckis.

awesome

First, i dont see anything hilarious about that last shot. It looks scary as shit to me and likely to anyone else thats ever been on a plane.
Second, this cast is perfect. The score for the trailer is great and I think with this and Real Steel, Zemeckis has finally gotten his head out of his ass
