Better late than never. Starring the two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington, the much-appreciated Hollywood film Flight is all set to finally take off (read release) in India this Friday, 1 March.
While this delay in the release of Flight might irk some cinephiles in India, the only positive one can think of right now is that since the film has already released almost everywhere around the globe, the reviews are out. To the joy of the moviegoers, Flight garnered extremely positive reviews and also helped Denzel Washington earn a nomination for the Best Actor in Leading Role at the 85th Academy Awards (Daniel Day-Lewis walked away with the coveted award for his performance in Lincoln though).
In Flight, Denzel Washington plays a pilot whose life changes after he performs a daring maneuver during an airliner crash and saves the passengers. While he is initially touted as a national hero, investigations later reveal that he was drunk while on duty; here’s hoping that other pilots don’t draw inspiration!
Knowing that Denzel Washington has won Academy Awards for Training Day (Actor in a Leading Role) and Glory (Actor in a Supporting Role), Flight is indubitably unmissable. Catch the trailer of Flight below and some stills on the following pages.
