Denzel Washington, Robert Zemeckis, & Film Cast Talk "Flight's" Turbulence

Paramount Pictures new offering, "Flight" with leading men Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, and John Goodman, promises to be a film that will stay with you long after the credits have rolled. Don't you love those kinds of movies? I do!

Not to leave the ladies out, actresses Kelly Reilly, and Melissa Leo also lend remarkable performances in this film. So this film has broad appeal and it will be interesting to see how various audiences respond to it.

You've probably seen the dramatic trailer, right? If not, in it Denzel is a fast thinking pilot that manages to land a crashing plane in such a miraculous way that he saves more lives than anyone could imagine, considering the dire circumstances.

But there's an underlying issue of alcoholism as well as a cover up by the airline. Someone's got to shoulder the blame for the crash and an alcoholic pilot is the perfect scapegoat. Once again Denzel gives us a flawed hero movie goers will either root for or demonize. Good guy or bad guy Denzel's performance in this film is so good, there's rumor of Oscar nomination.

Admittedly, I'm telling you what I've heard about "Flight" because I haven't seen it, but I did attend the film's press conference. So turn up the sound and go with me as i live and work in Hollywood and enter a room full of fellow entertainment writers, bloggers, publicists, and of course actors.

Imagine sitting before us at a long table is "da man" himself, Denzel Washington, and fellow cast members, Kelly Reilly, Bruce Greenwoood, Melissa Leo, John Goodman, and director, Robert Zemeckis.

And in your mind if you picture me trying to take a picture of all that celebrity before us, then you've gotten to know me well. It's a blogger's job to document their experience by any means necessary, but photography was prohibited. (Picture me too rolling my eyes at publicists and putting my camera back in my pocket. LOL.)
 

Now just as it is in "Flight" and in life, there can be issues. So if your browser won't allow you to view the sound player, click the hyperlink below to the press conference on SoundCloud.com
