Trailer: Denzel Washington in 'Flight'
The first trailer for Robert Zemeckis's 'Flight' starring Denzel Washington ('Safe House', 'Unstoppable') hit the web, showing the Oscar winner in a life-and-death scenario, 35 000 feet in the air.
The trailer includes scenes of the dramatic landing of a plane taking a nosedive. After the pilot, played by Washington, wakes in a hospital, a series of scenes unfold with the media hounding him first as a hero and then at a trial.
This action drama follows the pilot from the miraculous crash landing to facing celebrity as a hero. But things turn upside down, and an investigation provides revelations and raises questions about what really happened.
The cast costars Don Cheadle ( Iron Man), who plays the pilot's attorney, John Goodman ( The Artist) and Oscar winner Melissa Leo ( The Fighter).
Director Robert Zemeckis ( A Christmas Carol, The Polar Express) departs from motion-capture filmmaking to return to the action-suspense genre, a decade after his film Cast Away with Tom Hanks.
Flight opens November 2 in North America and the Netherlands, following in the UK, Sweden and more European markets in early 2013.
