#Apollo13 15th Anniversary Edition

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the historic space mission and the 15th anniversary of the Academy Award-winning film, Apollo 13 is now available for the first time ever on Blu-ray from Universal Pictures (UK) on 14th June 2010.

From Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard (The Da Vinci Code, A Beautiful Mind) and based on the dramatic events surrounding the real-life Apollo mission, this riveting story of survival, determination and hope stars Academy Award-winner Tom Hanks(Angels & Demons, Forrest Gump), Bill Paxton (Big Love, Titanic), Kevin Bacon (Frost/Nixon, Mystic River), Gary Sinise (CSI: NY", The Green Mile) and Ed Harris (Gone Baby Gone, A History of Violence).

Less than a year after the world marvelled at man's first moon walk - and only three years after the deadly Apollo 1 fire - the American public thought of the April 1970 Apollo 13 moon mission as just another "routine" space flight. But soon, four words from spacecraft commander Jim Lovell (Hanks) would change all that: "Houston, we have a problem".

Stranded 205,000 miles from home in a crippled spacecraft, Lovell, and two other astronauts, Jack Swigert (Bacon) and Fred Haise (Paxton), fought a desperate battle to survive while mission control's heroic ground crew raced against time, and long odds, to bring them home.

Apollo 13 is a visual masterpiece making it the perfect for Blu-ray and gives the viewer a more intense experience than ever before. The film picked up two Academy Awards and was nominated for a further nine including Best Picture. This ageless masterpiece is jam-packed with some fascinating extras including a feature commentary with director Ron Howard, Apollo 13 commander Jim Lovell and his wife Marilyn, along with the making of the film, and a documentary recapping the last 45 years in space plus much more. Apollo 13 offers a fascinating account of this breathtaking mission and is a must have for your Blu-ray collection.
