There's good reason for optimism, as Hanks has proven himself more than capable as both writer and actor. Sony just acquired the worldwide rights, which bodes well for distribution. And Hanks has based his script appropriately on C.S. Forster's "The Good Shepherd" -- which justifies the age of his character:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Good_Shepherd_(novel)

The one reason we might want to lower our expectations: the budget is about $30 million. These days, esp. for a war movie, that's not much. By contrast, "Captain Phillips" cost $55 million, and "Sully" cost $60 million.

hahah. Yes.
I don´t post much around. Whenever I find some time I play SH5 and SC.

...and I work in cool film projects with strong NDAs that don´t allow me to explain the details on how awesome they might be.

I'll always go back to The Missiles Of October.
Or, as I sometimes call it, The Revenge Of The Character Actors.

Sure, William Devane had to learn to talk like JFK and he deserved top billing, but (a young) Martin Sheen delivers as Bobby and that guy, what's his name?, he always played the high school principal.., well, you get the idea.

While shot for TV in a TV studio (I think it was Lorimar?) on a TV budget, Missiles still holds up. Khrushchev comes off as almost campy in the Three Minute Egg scene and this is the closest I've seen to the REAL Gen. LeMay.

(To paraphrase-)

"Mr. President, just give the order and SAC will reply in full.."
"Against Cuber? Wouldn't that be over kill?"
"Nooo.. Not against Cuba.."




So, great performances across the board AND done on a fairly low budget.

The giant pool makes a brief appearance in Shin Godzilla when it’s filled with mud and composited over a live action shot. Long live the giant pool.

No rubber suit though

I would like to see a nice movie about Karl Muller and the Emden.

The problem is that if they made it true to life, no one would believe it.

No Buna's were harmed in this picture although a lot of bananas were consumed.
