Broadsheet Trailer Park: Sully



What you may need to know:

1. The story of Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), the pilot who landed an Airbus A320 with 155 passengers on the Hudson River in 2009..

The Man with No Name directs the Man from Fed Ex.

This all-American biopic from Hanks and Clint Eastwood might come to the attention of Oscar voters.

4. Next year, members of the Academy will include Idris Elba John Boyega and, um, Ice Cube (there’s one vote in the bag for Kevin Hart in Ride Along 2).

5.  There are nearly as many T-Hanx stories as there are Murricane stories. The Hanx ones are true.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Oscar calling.

Release Date:
December 2.

    I don’t understand why you bother posting the numbered list of not even irrelevant but annoying non-thoughts unrelated to the film itself.

      So Ryall identifies as gender neutral, his posts are ‘non-thoughts’.

      Very thinly veiled transphobia…

    Worth reading Fly By Wire, William Langewiesche.
    He’s a terrific writer about all aspects of flying.

    Not only is it crazy that he was able to land it on water, but it’s insane that he didn’t hit anything *on* the river. There are ferries and other boats/tugs going up and down constantly.

    If I got that lucky once I’d be afraid to ever leave the house again.

    It’s an amazing story, but surely a very short one? Flight had bird strike 3 minutes into the flight, lost power and ditched in the Hudson 3 minutes after that. In all, less than 10 minutes of actual events….lotsa padding required
