First look at Tom Hanks as 'Sully'

First Look at Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood's Sully

On January 15, 2009, something awesome happened just off the west side of New York City: Pilot Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger landed a damaged US Airways flight on the Hudson River - and all 155 passengers and crew survived.

This very well put together trailer establishes the dramatic tone of the film, teases a sure shot Oscar-worthy Tom Hanks performance, some fantastic visual effects and Clint Eastwood's trademark no-nonsense directorial style.

It was in January 2009 that the world saw Captain Sully glide his doomed jet into the Hudson River, making it "The Miracle on the Hudson". Consequently, Eastwood's film also trains its focus on the messy aftermath of the incident.

Check out the trailer above to see Hanks as the famous pilot!

The trailer for "Sully" was released Wednesday, offering a preview of the Clint Eastwood-directed film coming to theaters on September 9, 2016. It was determined the plane suffered engine failure after a flock of geese struck both engines of the Airbus A320.

Hank's co-star Aaron Eckhart told People that the two-time Oscar victor "embraced the role in every way".

Which leads him to wonder: "What if I did get this wrong?"

Hanks is ably supported in the film by Laura Linney, Aaron Eckhart, Anna Gunn, and Jerry Ferrara. He wonders if he did endanger the lives of the people onboard the flight after all.

Tom Hanks is setting his sights on this year's Oscar race for a second consecutive year.

The highly anticipated drama Sully is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on September 9.
