Tom Hanks, who is currently starring in the film Captain Phillips, says he believes that these days, violence in film has been glamorized. Hanks recently told The Daily Mail that when he was younger, he did his best to stay away from violent films. Hanks has this to say: "We got into another era where it becomes the kind of glamorous it can be to fire guns and blow up buildings and stuff like that. And I understand that to a degree, but even when I was young I wanted to see films that somehow reflected my world or the world as I understand it or an authentic take on how on how complicated we all are." Hanks stated that he expected some film franchises would have to have certain amounts of violence. Hanks stated "While there's always room for a fabulous James Bond movie with a great action sequence in it, there is without doubt another type of film out there that is not that interested in it, there is no moralization that goes on , and I simply don't choose to see them. There have always been movies like that and it's just that now they are part of and parcel of the grand commerce of the motion picture industry." Hank is starring in the film Captain Phillips in the lead role as a captain of a ship that gets hijacked by Somali pirates. The film will be opening at the 57th BFI London Film Festival, which will run from October 9th until the 20th. Captain Phillips comes out in the US on October 11th and in the UK on October 18th. Take a look at the Captain Phillips trailer below.
