Watch Chris Pine In ‘The Finest Hours’ Trailer From Walt Disney Pictures

Chris Pine stars in the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures film, ‘The Finest Hours’ this coming January. A heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small boat rescue in Coast Guard history. Presented in Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D, the film transports audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale.

Directed by Craig Gillespie (“Million Dollar Arm”), “The Finest Hours” stars: Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films); Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck (“Interstellar”); Ben Foster (“3:10 to Yuma”); Holliday Grainger (“Cinderella”); John Ortiz (“Silver Linings Playbook”); and Eric Bana (“Lone Survivor”). Produced by Jim Whitaker (“Cinderella Man”) and Dorothy Aufiero (“The Fighter”), the screenplay is by Oscar® nominee Scott Silver (“8 Mile”) and Oscar nominees Paul Tamasy & Eric Johnson (“The Fighter”) based on the acclaimed non-fiction book of the same name by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. Doug Merrifield (the “Pirates of the Caribbean” films) serves as executive producer.

The Finest Hours” is packed with thrilling, larger-than-life action sequences and it is anchored by the strong central theme that resonates throughout the story—the strength of the human spirit. “It is an uplifting story about people accomplishing something with great, noble intentions because it was their job,” says producer Jim Whitaker. “I really believe in movies that are about hope, and that is ultimately what this film is about.”

It’s a very simple story about these guys who have a job, and it just so happens that on this day their job requires them to go out into the belly of the beast,” says Chris Pine. “It wasn’t done for glory and there wasn’t a self-aggrandizing vibe to it…it was just men doing their job.
