The first trailer for the star-studded Coast Guard rescue film The Finest Hours is here, and it’s intense.
Chris Pine stars in the heroic thriller based on the true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history.
The film follows the story of a massive nor’easter that struck New England in February 1952, ripping two 500-foot oil tankers, SS Pendleton and SS Fort Mercer in half, trapping their crews inside.
When the U.S. Coast Guard Station in Chatham, Massachusetts gets word, Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) dispatches a small, 26-foot motorized wooden lifeboat under the command of Captain Bernie Webber (Pine) to search for survivors on what seems like a suicide mission.
Before embarking, Pine turns around in the doorway and states, “You have to go out, but you don’t have to come back.”
The Finest Hours hits theaters Jan. 29, 2016.
