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 Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinise and Ed Harris in a riveting suspense-thriller from Imagine Entertainment.
Stranded 25, 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 odds - to bring them home.
It's a breathtaking adventure that tells a story of courage, faith and ingenuity that is all the more remarkable because it is true!
