Dramatic First Trailer for Flight Starring Denzel Washington
06.07.12 by Ryan
The first trailer for Flight has arrived online, offering a look at Denzel Washington's most dramatic role since, arguably, 2007's The Great Debaters. Flight sees Washington play commercial airline pilot Whip Whitaker, whose miraculous crash landing that saved nearly an entire flight of passengers is questioned when alcohol is found to have been in his system. Once his alcoholism is discovered, the entire episode is questioned, with questions arising over what really happened to the plane.
Flight is also a change-of-pace for director Robert Zemeckis, who has been working primarily on motion-capture animation movies like Beowulf and Polar Express for the past decade-plus since 2000's Castaway and What Lies Beneath.
Flight co-stars John Goodman (Red State), Don Cheadle (Iron Man 2), Bruce Greenwood (Star Trek), and Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes). The movie was written by John Gatins (Real Steel).
