Sully (also known as Sully: Miracle on the Hudson) is a 2016 American biographical drama film directed by Clint Eastwood and written by Todd Komarnicki, based on the autobiography Highest Duty by Chesley Sullenberger and Jeffrey Zaslow. Tom Hanks stars as Sullenberger, with Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney, Anna Gunn, Autumn Reeser, Holt McCallany, Jamey Sheridan, and Jerry Ferrara in supporting roles. The film follows Sullenberger's January 2009 emergency landing of US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River, in which all 155 passengers and crew survived with only minor injuries, and the subsequent publicity and investigation.

Bartender - Pete: [Sully walks into a pub and sits at the bar] Hey, is that you? Are you the pilot, Sully? that is you, right? Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger: Yeah. Bartender - Pete: Hey, it's a pleasure to meet you. That was unreal what you did the other day, that was really something. It's a real pleasure to meet you. You know, we invented a drink after you as soon as that happened, ain't that right, Johnny? Johnny - Drunk Customer: Yeah, yeah, you did. Bartender - Pete: The Sully: It's a shot of Grey Goose with a splash of water.
  • The scene where Tom Hanks, (as Capt. Sully), and other members of the crew appear on the David Letterman Show, was CGI altered from the original interview, (similar to Forest Gump), and was not recreated for the movie. David Letterman's appearance has changed a great deal since 2009 and he is not in the film as Katie Couric is.
  • The biplane that Sully is training on in the flashback scene is a very rare Stearman Cloudboy, one of just six still flying at the time the movie was made.
  • Actual Chesley Sullenberger was present at the studio. He supported the movie and helped it to reflect reality.
  • The film takes place on January 15, 2009.
  • Laura Linney and Aaron Eckhart had worked together on Frasier (1993), playing a couple.
