WATCH:  This week, Circa attended the "Sully" movie premiere in New York City, where Tom Hanks, Clint Eastwood and Aaron Eckhart discussed everything from the heroism of Capt. Chesley Sullenberger to the pilot's hypothetical approach to snakes on a plane.

WATCH:  Based on the true story, the film recounts the events of Jan. 15, 2009, when Sullenberger's Hudson River landing of a malfunctioning plane saved all of 155 passengers and crew.

That landing, known as the "Miracle on the Hudson," turned the pilot into a star overnight.

A two-time Academy Award winner, Hanks plays the film's heroic title character.

On the black carpet, he praised the real Sully for his demeanor on and after that fateful day.

Eastwood, who directed "Sully," told Circa he experienced his own water landing, 65 years ago.

Eckhart, who plays co-pilot Jeff Skiles, said Sully could handle another in-flight danger.

WATCH:  After all, who'd side with the slithering antagonists of "Snakes on a Plane" when Sully's in the cockpit?

"[Sully] would've bit their heads off and, you know, kept on going," Eckhart told Circa. "He wouldn't have thought anything of it."
