Watch The Very Fine Trailer For Disney’s The Finest Hours

Described by Disney as a “heroic action-thriller” that “transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale,” The Finest Hours is “the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the U.S. Coast Guard.” Set for a January release, this fact-based military drama is hoping to emulate the surprising blockbuster success American Sniper enjoyed around the same time last year.

Directed by shape-shifting filmmaker Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Fright Night, Million Dollar Arm), The Finest Hours stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Eric Bana, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, and John Ortiz. Judging from the new trailer, this film is equal parts Das Boot, U-571, and The Perfect Storm. In other words, if you have a thing for boats in peril, this is the film for you.


Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D, and IMAX® 3D, The Finest Hours arrives in theatres on January 29th. For a non-3D preview of the waterlogged crises to come, watch the trailer below.
