Captain Phillips wallpaper 1
The film tells the true story of Captain Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks, Cloud Atlas, Saving Private Ryan) and the hijacking of the American cargo ship Maersk Alabama by a band of Somali pirates in 2009 while in international waters. This was the first case of an American ship being captured in 200 years. Pirate Captain Muse's (Barkhad Abdi) gang holds Phillips and his crew for three long days. The American captain tries to keep the rest of the sailors alive by offering himself as a bargaining chip. The tension between the two captains, Phillips and Muse, will increase when the rescue team approaches the vicinity of the hijacked vessel. Captain Muse is willing to kill whoever it takes to get his demands met.
