Clint Eastwood’s “Sully” landed on the doorsteps of Oscar voters on Thursday. The film tells the true story of airline pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), the man at the center of the event known as “Miracle on the Hudson.” In January 2009 Sullenberger successfully executed an emergency water landing on the Hudson River after his US Airways flight was struck by birds and experienced engine failure at a low altitude. All 155 passengers and crew members on-board survived.
Scoring 76 on MetaCritic and 82% freshness on Rotten Tomatoes, “Sully” has made $187 million world wide to date, breaking records along the way. One such benchmark was the September haul for biggest global IMAX opening for a 2D film.
To date, 20 films have been delivered. Expect that number to rise in the days leading up to Thanksgiving (a prime time to catch up on contenders.) Below, a list of these titles with the most recent first.
