In 2016, the director Clint Eastwood
dramatized the savings account of an airline pilot who saved a planeload of passengers in Sully, and now hes recreating substitute true-energy onboard rescue in The 15:17 to Paris. But even though he cast one of the worlds biggest movie stars, Tom Hanks, as the pilot, this period the filmmaker enlisted the actual Americans who thwarted a 2015 terrorist irritate nearly a European train to accomplish themselves: Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone.
The newly released commercial for the performing, based upon the lp written by the three men (by now Jeffrey E. Stern), features scenes of their friendship, their childhood and the European vacation that brought them international renown. While the men had no professional acting experience, Mr. Skarlatos did make it to the finals of Dancing With the Stars tersely after the incident.
Mr. Eastwood has surrounded the neophytes with seasoned pros, and the trailer includes footage of Jenna Fischer (“The Office”) and Judy Greer (“The Descendants”) as the mothers of Mr. Skarlatos and Mr. Stone. Of course the major draw here is the director, who scored the biggest hit of his career with “American Sniper” (2014), which grossed $350 million in alone.
“The 15:17 to Paris” targets a similarly broad audience with the populist tagline “In the face of fear, ordinary people can do the extraordinary.” Warner Bros. will release the film in theaters on Feb. 9.
