Paramount has debuted the first trailer for director Robert Zemeckis’ Flight. In the movie, Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously lands his plane after a midair collision, saving the lives of hundreds of passengers. But as more details emerge, Whitaker becomes the focus of the investigation about what truly happened on that plane.
Washington is always a draw on the silver screen and he has an outstanding supporting cast that includes Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Melissa Leo and Bruce Greenwood. However, this trailer borders on the obscenely ridiculous when you realize that John Gatins’ (Real Steel) screenplay has the disabled plane land upside-down. That’s right, you have to watch this to believe it…
