Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart wave on stage at a press conference for Sully on Friday (September 16) in Tokyo, Japan.
The two actors also spoke about their film, in which Tom plays Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger – a pilot who became a hero after making an emergency landing on the Hudson River, saving everyone on board – and Aaron portrays his co-pilot, Jeff Skiles.
The two attended a special screening of the movie at the Directors Guild of America Theater in Los Angeles the week before.
Tom shared a photo of himself enjoying an authentic meal at a Tokyo restaurant with a group of friends that same night.
“Rocking Tokyo with my crew. Hanx,” Tom captioned the Twitter pic below.
The next day, Tom appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he and Ellen had a “voice off” as their respective characters Woody and Dory. They also discussed the work it took to get Tom‘s hair and mustache just right for his role in Sully!
Tom also recently visited Jimmy Kimmel Live, where the host surprised him with a special film Jimmy produced in honor of Tom‘s influential career, starring Captain “Sully” Sullenberger as Hanks!
Watch Chesley portray Tom in Forrest Gump, Castaway, and more below!
