Plot - The true story of Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) who in 2009 was the captain of the American container ship Maersk Alabama which was hijacked by a crew of Somali pirates, and who subsequently found himself taken hostage by the pirates on board one of the ship's lifeboats.
During an interview on NPR's "Fresh Air", Tom Hanks said the first time he met the actors playing the Somali pirates was when they started filming the pirates taking over the bridge.

But as film goers we can easily cast our minds back to the last great Somalia film: Black Hawk Down.
