Tom Hanks plays a real-life hero pilot in ‘Sully’

Sully tells the real story of Captain Chesley Sullenberger, a pilot who safely landed a plane in the Hudson River back in 2009. It was a captivating story ripe for the Hollywood treatment so it only feels right that Tom Hanks plays the titular role while Clint Eastwood directs. 

In this first trailer, Sully not only tells the story of the original drama but it also goes a step further to explore the internal investigation that could have ruined Sullenberger's career.

Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney also star. You can watch the full trailer above.
