How to watch Plane

How can you watch Plane? What’s that in the sky, is it a bird, is it a plane… no, wait, yes it’s a plane. Gerard Butler’s the pilot and it’s about to crash, MOVE.

This is potentially what someone thinks during Plane, the latest Gerard Butler movie, where he safely brings down a troubled flight on the island of Jolo, in the Philippines. His troubles are only part over by that point because some residents aren’t in the mood for a visit from random American and European tourists.

So begins another tense thriller movie from a seasoned professional. Jean-François Richet directs the airplane movie, with Mike Colter as the allegorical co-pilot alongside Butler. How do you watch Plane? Thankfully you don’t need a passport to see films, but step this way all the same.
