Disney is taking a break from sports movies based on true events for a disaster movie based on true events with The Finest Hours. Set in 1952 during one of the worst nor’easters in New England history, Chris Pine is a Coast Guard captain who sets out on a seeming suicide mission to rescue the men of the SS Pendelton, a gigantic tanker that has broken in half because of the storm and only has hours before it completely sinks. Casey Affleck is the senior officer on the tanker and Eric Bana is the Coast Guard warrant officer who orders the rescue. The movie has a “Perfect Storm” vibe but things worked out a little better for everyone involved here. The movie is out in January next year and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
