Is Robert Zemeckis finally back? The evil spirit that took control of the Back to the Future director for the last decade has apparently been vanquished, at least temporarily, for Zemeckis’ first non-motion capture movie since 2000′s Cast Away arrives this November in the form of Flight, a serious drama about a plane crash and starring Denzel Washington.
Zemeckis, who won an Oscar for Forrest Gump, has spent the last ten years giving us unintentionally creepy crap like The Polar Express, Beowulf and A Christmas Carol. It’s refreshing to see him directing not only a movie featuring real, non-animated actors but one that look like it has a serious shot at picking up some awards.
Watch the first movie trailer for Flight:
Flight lands in theaters November 2, 2012.
