Tom Hanks Makes A Comeback With Captain Phillips
It seems to have been a while since Tom Hanks had a really big movie that everyone is anxiously awaiting. Even though he has been right here the whole time, it kind of seemed as though he had disappeared. Let’s face it, it happens to the best of them. A lot of actors and actresses have phases they go through , you know the old phrase “here today, gone tomorrow” ? Well it may not be that extreme, but we all know how fast popularity can change. Once an “A” lister, now a “D” lister, I bet some celebrities feel as though that can happen over night. Tom Hanks may not have dived down to the “D” list, but he was certainly a bit scarce for a while.
So let’s welcome him back on the big screen for his new movie Captain Phillips.
Courtesy of IMDb- The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.
Though there is some controversy surrounding the movie I think that it will receive some pretty amazing reviews and be a huge hit for Tom. Congratulations for landing the role, as a long time fan I can say with confidence that I am certain you will not disappoint.
Captain Phillips is rated PG-13 and in theaters this Friday, October 11th
