Tom Hanks has done it again and landed himself another strong lead role. 

He’s sure to be tipped for awards season for his latest role.

The actor plays heroic Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger in the latest epic directed by Clint Eastwood.

The film portrays what happened in New York City when Capt. Sully landed Flight 1549 on the Hudson River in 2009 after a bird strike, saving all 155 passengers on board.

Laura Linney plays Lorrie, the wife and confidante of Hanks in the movie.

Check out the behind the scenes video below as Linney describes what she thought when Clint Eastwood asked her to come on board this true to life project.
