If you haven't heard, "Flight" is now playing in theaters. And while the R-rated airplane drama from director Robert Zemeckis is doing surprisingly well at the box office, Paramount really wants you to take note of Denzel Washington's well-received performance as an alcoholic pilot accused of causing his plane to crash. They even released this new and pretty effective 90-second TV spot, which seems like an early Oscar campaign for Best Actor. The US election might be over and done, but it seems movie's political season is just beginning.
In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash-lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault, and what really happened on that plane?
