In January 2009, a swarm of birds hit a U.S. Airways Airbus A320 that had just taken off from LaGuardia Airport in New York, forcing its pilot, Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, to maneuver a difficult crash landing in the Hudson River. You remember the rest: all 150 passengers survived, and Sullenberger was received as a national hero, earning an invitation to President Obama’s first inauguration and a place in the spotlight as an aviation safety pundit.

Now Tom Hanks is playing him in a biopic with Clint Eastwood directing it. The trailer for Sully went up on Wednesday, and it looks rather dark — darker than you’d expect in a story that ultimately had a happy ending (compared, at least, to the alternative). We see the psychological aftershock of Sullenberger’s ordeal, exacerbated by the side of the story that didn’t get nearly as much media attention: concern over the possibility that Sullenberger could have made it back to the airport, rather than ditching the plane in the frigid Hudson.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
