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.

On the morning of the launch in Florida, an exterior shot of the hotel Marilyn Lovell is staying at (when she loses her wedding ring in the shower) indicates the "Safari Inn" which is actually on W. Olive Ave in Burbank, Ca. See more »
[Jim is standing outside, looking up at the moon, covering and uncovering it with his thumb. Marilyn comes out with a garbage bag]
You're drunk, Lovell.
Yeah, I'm not used to the champagne.
[She picks at a few glasses on a table, then drops the bag in exasperation]
I can't deal with cleaning up, let's sell the house.
All right, we'll sell the house.
[Still looking up at the moon]
They're back inside now. Looking up at us. Isn't that something?

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.
