Mumbai, Jan 21 (IANS) Disney is all set to release the heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” in India on February 5.
The film will release across Indian cinemas in 2D, 3D and IMAX formats and promises to transport audiences to the heart of the action, read a statement.
Directed by Craig Gillespie, the film features a stellar cast comprising Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana.
The movie is based on a remarkable true story of the greatest small boat rescue in the US Coast Guard history.
The incident occurred on February 18, 1952, when a massive nor’easter (a macro-scale storm) struck New England, pummelling towns along the eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path. The vessels included 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.
