A murder inside the Louvre and clues in Da Vinci paintings lead to the discovery of a religious mystery protected by a secret society for two thousand years -- which could shake the foundations of Christianity.
Based on the true story of the ill-fated 13th Apollo mission bound for the moon. Astronauts Lovell, Haise and Swigert were scheduled to fly Apollo 14, but are moved up to 13. It's 1970, and America have already achieved their lunar landing goal, so there's little interest in this "routine" flight.. until that is, things go very wrong, and prospects of a safe return fade.

After Swigert admits having forgotten to file his tax return, Clint Howard, who has had tax problems in real life, improvised the line where he says "That's no joke! They'll jump on him!" See more »
The Booster flight controller is seen in Mission Control at the time of the explosion. Booster flight controllers are employed by the Marshall Space Flight Center, and are only concerned with the performance of the Saturn V launch vehicle. They leave as soon as Trans-Lunar Injection is complete, and as such, he would have been long gone by the time the explosion happened. See more »

The greatest movie. A touching yet thrilling action-packed story of hope and beating the odds.
This movie is my all-time favorite. It has every element that makes a movie a classic. It is suspenseful, thrilling, and touching. It has drama, comedy, suspense, and even a little romance. I read the book "The Lost Moon" written by Jim Lovell and was the basis of the movie. The writers, producers, director, and actors did a marvelous job of portraying the events of the perilous flight of Apollo 13. The actors (Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Kevin Bacon, Ed Harris, Kathleen Quinland, and Gary Sinise) did a wonderful job as their character. I absolutely love movies where everyone comes together to fight and work toward a certain, unified goal, and I cannot think of a better example of this than what is shown in Apollo 13.
