Good news for moviegoers: Those still struggling to shake that "Gravity" high can crash-land at sea with "Captain Phillips."

"Captain Phillips," the story of the Maersk Alabama vessel that was boarded by Somali pirates in 2009, marks the fourth consecutive weekend with a potential Best Picture nomination, trailing "Prisoners," "Rush" and "Gravity." "Phillips" stars Tom Hanks and is directed by Paul Greengrass, the "Bourne" director in his first pic since "Green Zone" flopped (fiscally) in 2010.
