Trailer out for ‘Captain Phillips’ starring Tom Hanks as Vermont sea captain Richard Phillips

The trailer is out for “Captain Phillips,” and here’s what you can expect when it hits theaters in October. Tom Hanks trying to pull off some kind of New England accent, since he plays Richard Phillips, the Vermont ship captain who survived being taken hostage by Somali pirates in 2009; drama galore, considering that Paul Greengrass, who directed Matt
Damon
in “The Bourne Ultimatum” and “The Bourne Supremacy,” is directing; and plenty of recognizable scenery, since several scenes were filmed not in Underhill, Vt., Phillips’s hometown, but at Sudbury’s Town Hall.  The movie costars Catherine Keener and David Warshofsky, and a really big boat that looks just like the Maersk Alabama that was taken over by pirates. Best line of the trailer? Hanks says of the fast-approaching
pirates: “They’re not here to fish.”
