Chris Pine braves the storming seas for a rescue mission in Disney's Finest Hours teaser

9 July 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A dangerous rescue on the stormy seas lies ahead for Chris Pine in a trailer for Disney's The Finest Hours.

Disney's action-adventure epic re-tells the true story of the 1952 Pendleton rescue mission, which followed a storm irrevocably damaging two oil tankers at sea.

Pine takes on an almost suicidal mission as Coast Guard serviceman Bernard Webber to rescue Ray Sybert's (Casey Affleck) crew aboard the doomed tanker.

The Finest Hours was filmed along the coast of Quincy, Massachusetts by Fright Night director Craig Gillespie.

Its release comes five years after Disney first secured the rights to the historical novel of the same name.

The Finest Hours opens in Us and UK cinemas on January 29. »

Directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm, Lars and the Real Girl), The Finest Hour is a true story of a dangerous rescue mission staged by the Boston Coast Guard in 1952.

Here’s the full synopsis:

On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern.

Watch: Chris Pine Braves a Ferocious Storm in Disney’s ‘The Finest Hours’ Trailer

8 July 2015 12:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Pine embarks on a suicide mission in the official trailer for Disney’s “The Finest Hours.”

Based on a true story, the film is set in 1952 in the wake of a treacherous storm that rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, leaving more than 30 sailors trapped inside. While first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) musters the courage to take control out at sea, Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Pine) sets out in a wooden lifeboat to save the crew.

From massive crashing waves to Pine’s romantic interest (played by Holliday Grainger) asserting agency in a room full of men, the leads must face multiple forms of fear to survive. In the trailer’s opening scene, Grainger foreshadows the film’s dramatic crux: “It scares me at night, that’s all,” she says, referring to the water. “You can’t see what’s underneath.” Pine replies in a heavy Boston accent, »

First Trailer for Coast Guard Drama 'The Finest Hours' with Chris Pine

8 July 2015 10:48 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I'm not giving up on him! Not on my watch." Disney has unveiled the first trailer for The Finest Hours, a Coast Guard drama about the most daring rescue mission in U.S. Coast Guard history. Chris Pine stars, along with Ben Foster, Eric Bana, Holliday Grainger and Graham McTavish. This trailer definitely has a Perfect Storm vibe to it, but there's also some history to the story since this takes place in the 1950s. It actually looks pretty good, with some strong performances, but there are a few odd scenes tossed in that I'm just not sure what to make of yet. I'm curious to take a look. Always down for inspirational tales of tenacity. Here's the first official trailer for Craig Gillespie's The Finest Hours, direct from YouTube: The Coast Guard makes a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil »

The Finest Hours Trailer Chronicles the Most Daring Rescue in Coast Guard History

8 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney has released the first trailer for their thriller The Finest Hours, chronicling the true story of the most courageous small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. From director Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm, Lars and the Real Girl) the film stars Chris Pine as a Coast Guard Captain who leads a daring and ill-equipped rescue mission to save the crew of the SS Pendleton, an oil tanker literally ripped in half by a massive nor'easter. The film also stars Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz, and Eric Bana and arrives in IMAX 3D January 29, 2016. That is a pretty fantastic trailer. The scale is enormous and the hits are visceral; plus there's something about those sea-faring aquatic thrillers that immediately ratchet up the stakes. This looks like one of those immersive films I'll go out of my way to see in IMAX. You also can't argue with that cast. »

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' First Look: Do we even care anymore?

3 July 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The most surprising thing about "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"? That they actually ended up making it. After losing three directors and at least one major star (Natalie Portman), the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling mashup novel is finally headed to the big screen, and EW has the exclusive on the first official images from the film, which director Burr Steers ("Igby Goes Down") says will be played without the tongue-in-cheek tone readers of the book may have been expecting: “The idea was that it was Pride and Prejudice set in this alternate world and then for everyone to play it straight,” Steers told EW. “The movie’s big wink is that there is no big wink.” Added star Lily James ("Cinderella"): “It’s definitely not camp.” You can view the images below. But first, here's a capsule history of the long-in-the-works production: April 2009: Seth Grahame-Smith's »

The surge in remakes, and their collateral damage

25 June 2015 8:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

With everything from The Craft to Kindergarten Cop getting some kind of remake right now, what's the real damage that's being done?

It might just be us, but the number of remake announcements we've seen in 2015 seems to be on the increase. In recent weeks alone we've had the cheery news that new takes on Big Trouble In Little China, Sister Act, The Craft and Kindergarten Cop are getting new takes of various sizes. And the response is both understandable and predictable: has Hollywood run out of ideas?

Well, probably. And yet I'd argue it's not that simple. That, in part, the dependency on remakes and sequels is a little bit down to us, but even more so, down to the fact that fewer big movies are being made, and studios want as much on their side when they're committing a nine figure spend to a film.
