To be released in October. The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. Based on the book "A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea" by Richard Phillips and Stephan Talty. Tom Hanks stars as Maersk Alabama Captain Richard Phillips.

Garnered good reviews so far and it has good high seas/military action components - Somali pirates, the US Navy, and Seal Team Six.

I'll probably check it out.
