This movie has potential.
Hmmm. I'm getting sick of Tom Hanks.
The promo says it's based on a true story, but unfortunately I'm not familiar with the event it is supposed to be based on.

I certainly hope it's not full of promo bullshit on how the Americans made the crucial breakthrough in capturing the Enigma code machine used by the Germans in ww2 with their film U571.

U571 was never involved in the incident and I'm pretty sure the British had captured a Enigma machine a couple of years earlier.
Another point of contention was when they were being depth charged,they depicted the German destroyer using active sonar pings when the German Navy of the time only had passive radar..

In fact their was much more inaccuracies with the film,that IIMO, it was a bit of a insult to the men who participated in the event.

Once I saw the disclaimer at the front of that trailer that says, "...inspired by actual events...", I knew this is a full on fiction story.

The movie I really want to see, but delayed or cancelled forever due to Chinese censorship is Ba Bai (800). Where the nationalist army defend Shanghai's sihang building. Trailer looked really good, but not the communist troops fighting it...

If you're a sucker for sappy fantasy-action-romances (like I am), then you'll love it.

If you are a fan of 新白娘子传奇, the ending will bring tears to your eyes.

LOVED the references!
