Tales of heroics are swell.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of what follows – of what comes after an act so bold it singularly is credited with the saving of lives.
Clint Eastwood’s upcoming Sully will do just that: examine the frenzied aftermath – thanks, media! – of 2009’s “Miracle on the Hudson,” the defining moment of Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger’s career in aviation.
Co-starring Aaron Eckhart as Sullenberger’s first officer and co-pilot that fateful day, Laura Linney as the captain’s wife, Anna Gunn (AMC’s Breaking Bad), and Mike O’Malley (TV’s Glee), the Tom-Hanks toplined Sully is due out on Sept. 9.
Here’s the trailer.
