With five Oscar nominations and two wins, it’s safe to say that Denzel Washington is well resepcted by his peers. And with the first batch of reviews for “Flight” mostly giving the picture a thumbs up, Washington could find himself back at the Dolby Theater in just a few months.
Penned by John Gatins, and marking the return to live action filmmaking by Robert Zemeckis, the movie tells the story of a pilot (Washington) who makes a remarkable landing when the plane he’s piloting starts to go down. He’s labeled a hero for saving so many lives in what could’ve been a tragedy, but it soon emerges he may have been drunk at the time, putting his life and career in jeopardy. With the movie soon making its way to theaters, fifteen new images have arrived not only showing Washington, but the extended cast as well, including Kelly Reilly, John Goodman, Don Cheadle and more.
“Flight” will play the Savannah Film Festival this weekend (where Goodman will be earning a career award) before it opens nationwide on November 2nd.
