Paramount Pictures has unveiled the trailer for "Flight," starring Denzel Washington, Kelly Reilly, Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, Brian Geraghty, Tamara Tunie and John Goodman. Check it out below.
Plot: The story revolves around "Whip" (Washington), a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a heroic feat of flying in a damaged plane, saving 98 lives on a flight carrying 106 people. While the world begs to embrace him as a true American Hero, the everyman struggles with this label as he is forced to hold up to the scrutiny of an investigation that brings into question his behavior the night before the doomed flight.
The new movie is directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, Cast Away, Polar Express), who returned to live-action after a decade of focusing on animated projects. "Flight" is set to hit theaters on November 2nd.

I hope Denzel taps that stewardess' fine piece of ass. There is just something so smoking hot seeing sexy stews walking down an airplane aisle. So Denzel probably liquored up and had a lap dance or two the night before. The dude rolled a commercial airliner and landed it on its belly. Hopefully they show him doing that to the stewardess as well.
^^Yeah, I know, I think you said that a few times already, so congrats.
Anyway, so what did you guys use, editing-wise? Avid or Final Cut, or something more exotic, like scissors and tape?
I hate the fact Apple not only destroyed Shake, one of the best compositors out there, but then they refuse(d) to make Final Cut available for Windows-based PCs, even though a Mac these days is virtually no different from a PC, save the on-board ROM.
And Avid, well, you have to have specialized hardware to get the best from it, which is strange because a high-end compositing package like NUKE works on old laptops. Smoke and Flame, well, different damned story.
So that leaves Adobe's garbage, like Premier, which is being used less and less, thank god, given the sh*tty workflow, and Vegas, Sony's pile of sh*t DIY editor, which is about as professional as using a rabid beaver's buck teeth for the cuts and camel c*m for the adhesive.
We just used Avid. I cut the plane crash sequence, which was obviously green screened, and used vanilla Avid tracking to temp in the background plates. It didn't look great, but it was good enough to give us an idea of what worked and what didn't. Atomic Fiction which is an effects house out of the San Francisco bay area, then did all the real effects work. They're good.
In general, everyone in Hollywood still uses Avid. I've worked on one doc that used FCP, years ago. And now with FCPX essentially sh*tting the bed and catering to YouTube content creators (I assume, because there's no way I can see any other 'professional' application for it), Avid is consolidating their stranglehold on the pro market even more.
^ ^ That was one of the best film in the last 20 years as a perfect combination of Scorsese/De Niro/ Pesci & S. Stone!
Speaking of De Niro, his best performance, aside Raging Bull, is def in The Deer Hunter. I saw that movie at least a dozen time and it still gets me every time especially with Christopher Walken. His performance moved me to my soul. Walken was never any good after he received his Oscar for best supporting actor. Pitty.
@PORNFLY: no amigo, not surprised just plain bored with the useless bitch.
It's amazing how the Studios these days can pay with millions knowing full well that this one or another has absolutely no f*cking talent but it's sufficient for them to use that image of a girl or boy just to be profitable enough. f*cking wankers!
I understand why Brad Pitt has dumped her! She was more of a burden than anything else.
@kurskij- thanks bro. my credit, AFAIK, will be 'Additional Editor'. Bob Z. has his main editor, Jeremiah O'Driscoll (who cut all his mocap movies) as the top-line credit on the film. I was brought in, along with Artie Schmidt (came out of retirement), to help speed up post production. They're both great editors, but Artie is a f*ckin legend (all the BTTF filmes, Roger Rabbit, Gump- the dude has two Oscars). Neither of them wanted to deal with the plane crash sequence, so that was my baby. Like I said before, any visual effects that I did was only temp.
I should add that Bob Zemeckis is a f*ckin fantastic editor himself.... and a nice guy to boot :)
The motion-capture thing was becoming trite, thank god he's going back to love-action. This looks pretty damn decent. Washington isn't in enough films, he truly one of the best actors around. At first I thought this was going to be another "Unstoppable" but I was wrong. Adding this one to the list.
