Denzel Washington Lands a Plane in ‘Flight’ Trailer

Denzel Washington
Paramount Pictures

For Robert Zemeckis’s return to live-action filmmaking, he’s got Denzel Washington in the middle of an averted tragedy. The trailer for ‘Flight’ shows Washington pull off something miraculous, but that may not be enough for the press and public.

The trailer also showcases the film’s great supporting cast, which features Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood and John Goodman, and has some great effects work (to be expected from Zemeckis), and what looks to be a compelling narrative. One wonders if Martin Scorsese is annoyed about the use of The Rolling Stone’s “Gimme Shelter,” as Scorsese has been using it in his movies since ‘Goodfellas.’

Zemeckis is one of those directors who fell in love with the tools of film making, and like a lot of gear-headed directors (George Lucas, Peter Jackson, and James Cameron to name a few), there’s a sense with his motion captured movies that he was more interested in advancing the technology than telling a compelling story. After Zemeckis had his mo-capped ‘Yellow Submarine’ film fall apart, this was his rebound film, and (perhaps forced) return to live action. But if the film plays as well as the trailer, perhaps he hasn’t lost his interest in humans. We’ll know for sure when the film hits theaters November 2.
