On Jan. 15, 2009, Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) makes an emergency landing in New York’s Hudson River after US Airways Flight 1549 strikes a flock of geese. Miraculously, all of the 155 passengers and crew survive the harrowing ordeal, and Sullenberger becomes a national hero in the eyes of the public and the media. Despite the accolades, the famed pilot faces an investigation that threatens to destroy his career and reputation.
“Sully,” rated PG-13, plays at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 6.
Director Antoine Fuqua brings his modern vision to a classic story in Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Columbia Pictures’ “The Magnificent Seven,” starring Denzel Washington in his first Western role. With the town of Rose Creek under the deadly control of industrialist Bartholomew Bogue (Peter Sarsgaard), the desperate townspeople, led by Emma Cullen (Haley Bennett), employ protection from seven outlaws, bounty hunters, gamblers, and hired guns: Sam Chisolm (Denzel Washington), Josh Farraday (Chris Pratt), Goodnight Robicheaux (Ethan Hawke), Jack Horne (Vincent D’Onofrio), Billy Rocks (Byung-Hun Lee), Vasquez (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo), and Red Harvest (Martin Sensmeier). As they prepare the town for the violent showdown that they know is coming, these seven mercenaries find themselves fighting for more than money.
“The Magnificent Seven,” PG-13, plays at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday, Oct. 7 and 8, and Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 12 and 13. It also plays on Sunday, Oct. 9, at both 2 and 7 p.m.
