Captain Phillips – Blu-ray, DVD & UltraViolet – March 6, 2014
Directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from the producers of The Social Network and American History X, and starring two time Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks, Captain Phillips is a pulse-pounding thriller detailing the hijacking of a US container ship by a crew of Somali pirates. Based on a true story, this highly acclaimed and gripping action adventure, nominated for four Golden Globes® including Best Motion Picture (Drama), is available on Blu-ray™, DVD and UltraViolet™ from March 6, 2014.
Through Greengrass’ distinctive lens, Captain Phillips throws audiences into a world of suspense, exploring the complex portrait of the effects of globalisation. As the Maersk Alabama is boarded by pirates in foreign waters, Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) fights to maintain the safety of his crew. Rendered helpless under the control of their commander, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), Phillips is forced to use wit rather than brawn to keep himself alive.
