Disney Presents THE FINEST HOURS ~ in theaters January 2016

by Heather

There are individuals that wear uniforms that elicit respect.

There are individuals that wear uniforms that work to save others while risking their own lives.

There are individuals that wear uniforms that are heroes.

The U.S. Coast Guard falls under all three categories.

The trailer below, it drew me in, I teared up, and it left me wanting to see more. THAT is the sign of a good movie … a great movie. Please watch the trailer and then join us in the countdown to January 2016!

Disney’s THE FINEST HOURS is the unforgettable story of the Coast Guard’s most daring rescue mission, which is directed by Craig Gillespie and stars Chris Pine; Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana.

THE FINEST HOURS opens in theatres everywhere on January 29th, 2016!

A heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is the remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D and IMAX® 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. 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. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.

Disney’s “The Finest Hours” is the unforgettable story of the Coast Guard’s courageous mission, which is directed by Craig Gillespie and stars: Chris Pine; Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck; Ben Foster; Holliday Grainger; John Ortiz; and Eric Bana. Produced by Jim Whitaker and Dorothy Aufiero, the screenplay is by Oscar® nominee Scott Silver and Oscar nominees Paul Tamasy & Eric Johnson based on the acclaimed non-fiction book of the same name by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. Doug Merrifield serves as executive producer. “The Finest Hours” storms into U.S. theaters on January 29, 2016 in Digital 3D and IMAX® 3D.

This doesn’t sound like something Disney would make! But, all the same, it sounds like a wonderful movie! I never knew that Disney had it in them to make an action-thriller! Way to go Disney!!!

Water movies are really intense for me ever since I watched the original Poseidon Adventure when I was a kid. Some other ones are The Hunt for Red October and The Perfect Storm. I think this one will be just as intense!

This movie sounds like it’s worth checking out. I get bored easily, typical Gemini, and need something that will hold my attention. My husband says I’m the worst person to watch a movie with because when I get bored, I’ll get up and start doing something else. Then I’ll come back and ask what I missed.
