Apollo 13

It had been less than a year since man first walked on the Moon, but as far as the American public was concerned, Apollo 13 was just another routine space flight - until these words pierced the immense void of space, "Houston, we have a problem." Ron Howard directs Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise, Ed Harris, and Kathleen Quinlan in a riveting suspense-thriller. Stranded 205,000 miles from Earth in a crippled spacecraft, astronauts Jim Lovell (Hanks), Fred Haise (Paxton) and Jack Swigert (Bacon) fight a desperate battle to survive. Meanwhile, at Mission Control, astronaut Ken Mattingly (Sinise), flight director Gene Kranz (Harris) and a heroic ground crew race against time - and the odds - to bring them home. Apollo 13 a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith and ingenuity that is all the more remarkable because it is true!
