Tom Hanks has to deal with a piracy situation in the second trailer for Captain Phillips

The first trailer for CAPTAIN PHILLIPS gave us surface details on the true life experience of Captain Richard Phillips. Now in the second trailer what we once thought was intense, is now preying on our every claustrophobic fear. I think if you weren't sold on the first trailer this one will certainly reel you in:

There's talk out there that this is potential Oscar bait, and maybe a win in the Best Actor category for Tom Hanks. I can definitely see it possibly getting some awards: true story coupled with a powerhouse performance from Hanks. Sort of a no-brainer if they film turns out to be as intense as the trailer leads it to be.

Synopsis: Captain Phillips is director Paul Greengrass's multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is – through Greengrass's distinctive lens – simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks), and his Somali counterpart, Muse (Barkhad Abdi). Set on an incontrovertible collision course off the coast of Somalia, both men will find themselves paying the human toll for economic forces outside of their control. The film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty.

CAPTAIN PHILLIPS hits theaters October 11, 2013.
