'The Finest Hours' Trailer: Chris Pine and Casey Affleck Fight to Save a Sinking Ship

'The Finest Hours' Trailer: Chris Pine and Casey Affleck Fight to Save a Sinking Ship

Jul 08, 2015

Hollywood and audiences alike have long held a fascination with dramas on the high seas. It doesn't matter if they're entirely fictitious (The Poseidon Adventure, Life of Pi) or based on a true story (The Perfect Storm), there's just something about men and women trying to survive while the ocean rages around them that people love.

In the next few months we'll actually be getting two movies that fit the bill. First up is In The Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard and hitting theaters on December 11, 2015. And now today gives us the first trailer for The Finest Hours, starring Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Holliday Grainger, and Eric Bana and hitting theaters on January 29, 2016.

Directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl), The Finest Hours takes on the true story of an oil tanker that was literally ripped in half by a storm in 1952 and the Coast Guard team that set out to rescue them. Chris Pine leads the Coast Guard team, while Affleck is the man trying to hold the survivors together on the sinking ship. It looks like a dash of The Guardian, a sprinkle of The Perfect Storm, and one giant heaping of Disney's sincere optimism that makes movies like this so irresistible.
