'The Finest Hours' Trailer: Chris Pine Is a Hero Facing Perfect Storm
"The Finest Hours" covers the true story of what's being called "the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history." Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, and Eric Bana star in the action thriller, and Disney just released the first trailer.
Check it out:
It's hard not to make some comparisons to "A Perfect Storm," even if this is set in the 1950s and the plot is quite different. "The Finest Hours" follows a massive nor'easter that struck New England on February 18, 1952. The storm wreaked havoc on the ships caught in its path, including the SS Pendleton. Affleck plays the senior officer on board, who realizes it's up to him to take charge. Meanwhile, as word reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Bana's warrant officer orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Four men, led by Pine's Coast Guard captain, set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little means of navigation to face freezing temperatures, 60-foot high waves, and hurricane-force winds. Talk about heroes!
Disney plans to release "The Finest Hours" on January 29, 2016. What do you think, so far?
