London Film Festival Picks Tom Hanks Film to Open, Same as New York

I don’t get this at all. But hey, whatever…Tom Hanks’ movie “Captain Phillips” is opening the London Film Festival. The Paul Greengrass movie about Somali pirates taking over the Maerska Alabama will have already opened the New York Film Festival a couple of weeks earlier, in September. With all the good films coming this fall, you’d think the Brits would have chosen something else. But there is is. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
