Hanks stars as the real-life ship captain who has allowed himself to be taken hostage by Somali pirates in exchange for his crew's safety.

New trailer for "Captain Phillips" has been unleashed via Yahoo! Movies. The movie is a thriller based on true story of real-life Captain Richard Phillips and 2009 hijacking of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates. It stars Oscar winner Tom Hanks as the titular character.

As seen in the video, when the pirates board the ship, the captain does everything he can to safeguard his crew even if it is his life that is put at stake. Unlike the first one, the second trailer gives more of what happens between the brave man and the pirates as they spend days inside the tiny confines of the 18-foot lifeboat where he is taken hostage.

The real captain Phillips recalls tense situations inside the lifeboat when interviewed by Yahoo! Movies. "They took me aboard and they were not happy. Punches and slaps to the head, hitting me with their pistol and their gun. Trussing me up very tight, so tight I still have some scars and numbness today," he says.

He, however, did not give up. "If I gave up I'd be a hostage, just something they could ransom or murder," Phillips continues explaining. "If I didn't give up, I could play mind games with them as they were playing with me."

Directed by "The Bourne Ultimatum" helmer Paul Greengrass, "Captain Phillips" also stars Catherine Keener and Max Martini. It is set as the opening-night film at the New York Film Festival next month and will be released nationwide on October 11.
