Following yesterday’s reveal of the film’s poster, Walt Disney Pictures has released The Finest Hours trailer. Take a first look at the upcoming real-life action-thriller in the player below!
Directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm), The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine (Star Trek), Casey Affleck (Interstellar), Ben Foster (Lone Survivor), Holliday Grainger (Cinderella), John Ortiz (Blackhat) and Eric Bana (Deliver Us from Evil).
The Finest Hours is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the
Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on anything caught in its destructive path, including two
500-foot oil tankers. The SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer, bound for Boston, Massachusetts
and Portland, Maine, respectively, were both ripped in half, trapping their crews inside. For the
senior officer aboard the stern of the Pendleton, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey
Affleck), he quickly realizes that it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and
encourage them to work together to keep the ship afloat for as long as possible. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.
The Finest Hours hits the big screen January 29, 2016. What did you think of the The Finest Hours trailer? Let us know in the comments below!
