Movie opening this week, definitely want to see it.

I thought it a cool choice for Eastwood to cast the actual participants in the incident (with the exception of the French passenger who continues to remain anonymous to this day, willingly).

Hope it's not as ludicrous as Eastwood's "American Sniper."

Which French passenger? I saw an interview with these guys and they said the Frenchman who was shot was in the movie along with his wife, and the Brit who also helped is in it too. I’m excited for this movie. It’s an amazing story.

Just read the article, which does say that Moogalian and his wife were in the movie and that another Frenchman who tackled the guy by the restroom wants to remain anonymous. But many of the people that were on the train that day were in this film. That’s pretty cool. Moogalian said it was actually cathartic. I bet it would be.

Yes I think it was an inspired move on Eastwood's part. Use the actual heroes instead of some overpaid Hollywood actor.

How accurate is the heroic terrorist fight in Clint Eastwood's 'The 15:17 to Paris'?

The use of real people frankly scares me. I understand that they became actors after their experience but people actually train to be actors. Meanwhile a few like athletes and musicians are stunt cast into a roll. I guess we will see Friday.

So has anybody else see the Audie Murphy story? It was the first thing I thought of after hearing that the trio would be playing themselves

Robert Bresson and Carl Theodor Dreyer routinely used non actors. Even the Dardenne brothers.

And so did the Sherwood Baptist Church for their four movies. If Clint Eastwood had used Captain Sullenberger instead of Tom Hanks it doesn't mean Sully would have been better just because of using a real person. I will await the reviews on this one.

I like movies that are about true life characters, real people, and their stories are about them.. Hollywood is good with agendas, and this one is not.. That's why I will go see it.
