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 voice 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 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.
