Director Robert Zemeckis is returning to live-action with Flight, starring Denzel Washington, John Goodman and Don Cheadle.
Zemeckis hasn’t done a non-animated film since 2000’s Cast Away and ever since then he’s been on a slow decline. His animated movies got better in tech as they went, but less memorable on a storytelling level. It’s almost as if Zemeckis was more worried about advancing the technology and less worried about making a good movie.
That seems to be changing with his return to live-action, because Flight looks really good. Denzel Washington‘s best role in years perhaps?
The film opens on November 2nd, 2012.
