The latter, Muse, stamps his authority early on, declaring himself the new captain of the ship, but that doesn't stop the captain from negotiating and indeed counselling his captor. At one point in the trailer, Phillips asks "There's gotta be something other than kidnapping people", to which Muse responds "Maybe in America". Hanks has already won two Academy Awards, but if this trailer is anything to go by, it would be no surprise to see him nominated once again. Greengrass' Captain Phillips also stars Catherine Keener as Phillips' wife - seen here in one of the trailer's opening shots - and Kevin Spacey, who also has a producer credit for the film.
Paul Greengrass' Captain Phillips is released in UK cinemas on 28 October, 2013.
