Watch: Chris Pine Braves a Ferocious Storm in Disney’s ‘The Finest Hours’ Trailer

Chris Pine embarks on a suicide mission in the official trailer for Disney’s “The Finest Hours.”

Based on a true story, the film is set in 1952 in the wake of a treacherous storm that rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, leaving more than 30 sailors trapped inside. While first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) musters the courage to take control out at sea, Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Pine) sets out in a wooden lifeboat to save the crew.

From massive crashing waves to Pine’s romantic interest (played by Holliday Grainger) asserting agency in a room full of men, the leads must face multiple forms of fear to survive. In the trailer’s opening scene, Grainger foreshadows the film’s dramatic crux: “It scares me at night, that’s all,” she says, referring to the water. “You can’t see what’s underneath.” Pine replies in a heavy Boston accent, “Just more water.”

The rescue drama is directed by Craig Gillespie and also stars John Ortiz and Eric Bana. It is produced by Jim Whitaker and Dorothy Aufiero with the screenplay by Scott Silver, Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson with source material from the nonfiction book of the same name by Michael J. Tougias and Casey Sherman. Doug Merrifield is the executive producer.

The film is set to bow Jan. 29.
