Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle star in the Flight trailer
It’s hard to believe, but it has been 12 years since Robert Zemeckis last directed a film. In 2000, he directed CASTAWAY (one of my personal favorites) and since then he’s been on a motion-capture animated kick, which included such lackluster films as THE POLAR EXPRESS, BEOWULF and A CHRISTMAS CAROL. But he’s back and his latest effort, FLIGHT, looks like it belongs with some of his best work (I’ll let you decide if that’s a compliment or not). It doesn’t hurt that he has Denzel Washington carrying the movie for him and per normal, it looks like Denzel Washington does a great job in it.
The film is about a pilot that pulls of a miracle landing and saves almost 100 lives, only to have the aftermath of the crash come under scrutiny. He struggles dealing with his hero status and when the events leading up to the crash are questioned, it starts to weigh on him. FLIGHT stars Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, Brian Geraghty, Kelly Reilly, John Goodman and Tamara Tunie. The Robert Zemeckis directed film hits theaters on November 2nd.
