FLIGHT TRAILER

Robert Zemeckis’ return to live-action filmmaking will bring the 50th New York Film Festival in for a landing. Festival officials announced Thursday that Flight, starring Denzel Washington as an airline pilot whose miraculous emergency landing only opens up a deeper mystery, will be the closing film of the festival, on Oct. 14 at Alice Tully Hall.

It’s the first major announcement for the festival, which will run from Sept. 28 through Oct. 14 at Lincoln Center.

Flight, costarring John Goodman, Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo, Bruce Greenwood, and Kelly Reilly (Sherlock Holmes), opens nationwide on Nov. 2.
