The first design is the domestic one-sheet showing a long shot of two pirates climbing up a ship, while the other, which showcases leading man Hanks, is the international design.
The film is the true story of Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) 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. Phillips, married father of two, surrendered himself to a group of four Somali pirates in order to protect his crew off the coast of Africa. After an unsuccessful escape attempt, he was subsequently rescued when US Navy SEAL snipers shot and killed three of the pirates.
“Captain Phillips” is directed by Oscar-nominee Paul Greengrass (“United 93,” “The Bourne Ultimatum”) from a screenplay by Billy Ray and based upon the book, "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea," by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty.
Opening across the Philippines in October 2013, “Captain Phillips” is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Visit http://www.columbiapictures.
