Back in 2009, an American container ship set sail just like it has done so many times before. But this time was different.
This time a Somali pirate ship raced towards it, climbed aboard and took everyone hostage - all because they wanted millions of dollars.
The captain of the ship was a man named Richard Phillips who vowed to do anything and everything to keep his crew safe from the hostile pirates and their mal leader, Muse.
Catch Captain Phillips starring two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, Wednesday night on e.tv at 11pm. Interesting fact, the ship was the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in over 200 years.
