THE FINEST HOURS - 3 Featurettes and 5 Clips


Today we have a batch of three behind-the-scenes featurettes and five clips for Disney's "The Finest Hours" which is now in theaters. The true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's most daring rescue mission didn't make much of an impression on critics. While the technical aspects are dazzling and it does feature impressive performances, the reviews indicate that the film is let down by its manipulative sentimentality and a surprising lack of facts in what should have been a fact-based drama.

Directed by Craig Gillespie ("Million Dollar Arm"), the film stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz, Josh Stewart, Rachel Brosnahan, Graham McTavish and Eric Bana.

Check out the featurettes and clips after the jump.

Official Synopsis
"A heroic action-thriller, “The Finest Hours” is the remarkable true story of the most daring rescue mission in the history of the Coast Guard. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, the film will transport audiences to the heart of the action, creating a fully-immersive cinematic experience on an epic scale. On February 18, 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, which was literally ripped in half, trapping more than 30 sailors inside its rapidly-sinking stern. As the senior officer on board, first assistant engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) soon realizes it is up to him to take charge of the frightened crew and inspire the men to set aside their differences and work together to ride out one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast. Meanwhile, as word of the disaster reaches the U.S. Coast Guard station in Chatham, Massachusetts, Warrant Officer Daniel Cluff (Eric Bana) orders a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men, led by Coast Guard Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine), set out in a wooden lifeboat with an ill-equipped engine and little, if any, means of navigation, facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds."
