The Finest Hours — 60-Second TV Spot


added: Wed, Dec 16th '15

Teamwork, bravery, and unwavering endurance appear to be the themes at work in this new 60-second commercial for Disney's sea rescue drama "The Finest Hours," starring Chris Pine and Casey Affleck.

Based on the 2010 book of the same name, the film recounts a real-life Coast Guard operation in 1952, in which four officers of a lifeboat crew risked their lives to rescue 33 oil ship workers who were left stranded at sea when one of the worst storms in Massachusetts's history hit the East Coast and snapped their tanker in two.

Directed by Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm, Fright Night), the film also stars Eric Bana, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger and Graham McTavish.

"The Finest Hours" heads into theaters (including Digital 3D and IMAX 3D) on January 29th.

On February 18, 1952, a massive nor'easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern.

As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men.

Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds.
