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.

The Time Magazine 'Men of The Year' cover that Haise (Bill Paxton) and Kenneth Mattingly (Gary Sinise) look at during the Apollo 11 party at the Jim Lovell's house is a real magazine cover, famously celebrating the Apollo 8 missions orbiting of the moon. However, it has been edited, replacing the original caricature of Lovell, with one of Tom Hanks for movie consistency. Borman and Anders remain unchanged given that they don't appear in the film.

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.
