Warner Bros. released the first trailer for Sully this week — a film about U.S. Airways pilot Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s daring water landing in New York City’s Hudson River in 2009 that saved the lives of all 155 passengers and crew.
Tom Hanks plays Sully, who famously piloted U.S. Airways Flight 1549 into a soft water landing in the Hudson River after a flock of birds took out both engines shortly after takeoff on January 15, 2009.
The incident turned Sullenberger into a national hero and became referred to as the “Miracle on the Hudson.”
The film stars Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, Anna Gunn, Sam Huntington and Laura Linney.
Clint Eastwood directs off of a script from Todd Komarnicki (Perfect Stranger, Resistance).
Sully is in theaters September 9.
