Remember in 2009 when breaking news spun across the country that a plane, in NYC, was deviating from it’s path?  Remember holding your breath and seeing the plane somehow land on the Hudson?  Remember wondering how that plan managed to stay in one piece and somehow stayed afloat long enough to get everyone safely off board?  Remember marveling at the skill it took to make that happen?

If you remember, or even if you don’t, that emergency landing and the events following it are now a major motion picture staring Tom Hanks.

On January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the “Miracle on the Hudson” when Captain “Sully” Sullenberger glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.

Sully opens in theaters on September 9, 2016.


Directed by Clint Eastwood.

Written by Todd Komarnicki, based on the book Highest Duty by Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow.

Starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Jeff Skiles, Laura Linney.
