Inferno is more of the same with a crazy weird puzzle that must be solved to prevent a dead biochemist’s plan to kill off half the world’s population (to save it) from coming to fruition. This must be done by a half-dead Robert Langdon who is recovering from a head trauma and the doctor who helps him.

Tom Hanks has another Oscar®-worthy role in another very entertaining movie.

Clint Eastwood’s Sully tells the story we never knew about – the NTSB investigation into whether Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberg made the right/only choice when he landed Castle 1549 in the Hudson River in January of 2009. All 155 souls aboard survived, but the investigators claimed he didn’t have to land there.

208Seconds Trailer: Sully: The IMAX Trailer!

USP-01608rv3

208 seconds after takeoff, on January 15, 2009, Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger landed his disabled plane on the Hudson River – saving everyone aboard. That’s the part of the story we all know.

The part we don’t know is the one where, behind the headlines, an investigation was going on could destroyed his reputation and career. That’s the basis for Clint Eastwood’s Sully.

In a trailer made for IMAX (the film was made with IMAX cameras), Eastwood talks a bit about the movie. The trailer follows the break.

Sully opens on September 9th.

Bridge of Spies: Like John LeCarre, Only Real!

Brooklyn lawyer James Donovan (Tom Hanks) meets with his client Rudolf Abel (Mark Rylance), a Soviet agent arrested in the U.S. in BRIDGE OF SPIES, directed by Steven Spielberg.

Bridge of Spies tells a story that unfolded over five years in a little under two-and-a-half hours. It’s the story of a man who was on the prosecutorial team at Nuremberg but had spent the time between then and 1957 as an insurance lawyer. Then he was asked to represent a Soviet spy and, in trying to do his job properly, became the second most hated man in America (after the spy) – until the Soviets shot down U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers.

It’s a case where real life became something out of a John LeCarre spy novel.

Saving Mr. Banks: Making Mary Poppins Through a Glass Disney!

Saving-Mr.-Banks 3

The story of how Walt Disney persuaded P.L. Travers to sell him the movie rights to Mary Poppins is the subject of Saving Mr. Banks. It’s a tale of saving in many respects – it saved Mrs. Travers from bankruptcy; saved Mr. Disney from breaking a promise to his daughters, and its Christmas season release may have saved Disney Studios from missing out on awards nominations – and possible wins. For all that, it’s a remarkably effective, surprisingly direct movie with a lot of superb characters interacting in ways you might not have expected in a Disney movie.
