The film is based on an incredible true story of an Sichuan Airlines flight. Whilst flying over the Tibetan Plateau, the cockpit’s windows smash forcing the pilots defy all odds.
This actually looks really good, maybe I’m a little bias, as I do work for an well known Airline! Thankfully only on the ground! Cine Asia are releasing the film in the UK and here is the film’s UK Trailer…
From critically acclaimed director Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs trilogy) comes The Captain, a thrilling new epic based on an incredible true story.
In May 2018, during a normal flight aboard Sichuan Airlines, the cockpit windshield shattered while flying 30,000 feet above the Tibetan Plateau. With a co-pilot fighting for his life and passengers in panic and losing consciousness, the plane’s heroic captain (Zhang Hanyu, Operation Red Sea, Operation Mekong) defied all odds and successfully landed the plane in one of the most miraculous emergency landings in Chinese aviation history. What he achieved under pressure is revered to this day.
Charged with suspense and stunning action, and visual effects from the team behind Monster Hunt and Hero, The Captain is a true epic and a tribute to real human courage.
The film also stars Zhang Hanyu, Shu Chen, Jiang Du, Joyce Wenjuan Feng.
Cine Asia presents The Captain in UK and Irish cinemas from 4th October, with previews from 30th September.
