Sometimes, you don't need a memorable title or a clever marketing campaign. You just need the promise of Gerard Butler kicking ass and worry about the rest later.
That's pretty much what we get in the latest trailer for Plane, formerly titled Mayday. Butler stars as pilot Brodie Torrance, who's forced into a tense situation when his commercial flight crash lands on an island in the midst of a civil war. To survive, he'll have to rely on one of his passengers: convicted murderer Louis (Mike Colter), whose particular set of skills should come in handy against militia men armed to the teeth. Co-starring reliable character actors like Paul Ben-Victor, Tony Goldwyn and Joey Slotnick, this feels like the perfect January movie. Nothing too flashy, nothing awards-worthy, just a good time at the movies.
Plane takes off January 13.
