About Apollo 13

Directed by Ron Howard and nominated for nine Academy Awards®, the film stars Tom Hanks, Kevin Bacon, and Bill Paxton as astronauts Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert and Fred Haise, who were selected to fly NASA’s third moon landing mission. While en route, an explosion causes a critical systems failure, forcing Mission Control to abort the lunar landing.  As the astronauts struggle to come to grips with their perilous situation, and with oxygen and electrical supplies dwindling aboard the ailing spacecraft, Flight Director Gene Kranz (Ed Harris) and his team mount a desperate attempt to bring the three men home safely.
