Still shot from the movie: Captain Phillips.

Captain Phillips

In 2009, pirates on the high seas seemed a romanticized thing of the past -- until a US cargo ship was hijacked by a group of armed men from Somali. This movie dramatized the real life events that Captain Richard Phillips (played by Tom Hanks) and his crew endured during the hostile takeover. Get the movie review and more. »
