A Hijacking

A Hijacking Release Date: June 21, 2013

Proving that Magnolia Pictures is not a real player in Hollywood, their A Hijacking, released in theaters four months before Sony’s , tells the same story, virtually… but A Hijacking made nary a dent at the movie box office, compared to Captain Phillips.

In A Hijacking, the taken hostage in a cynical game of life and death. With the demand for a ransom of millions of dollars a psychological drama unfolds between the CEO of the shipping company and the Somali pirates.

A Hijacking took in a paltry $400,000 in U.S. theaters, while Captain Phillips took in well over $100 million.

Granted, A Hijacking is a film not in the English language, with English subtitles.
