April 13, 1970. Astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert are hurtling towards the moon in the Apollo 13 spacecraft, when an explosion rocks the ship. The cockpit grows dim, the air grows thin, and the instrument lights wink out. Moments later, the astronauts are forced to abandon the main ship for the tiny lunar module, designed to keep two men alive for just two days. But there are three men aboard and they are four days from home.

As the action shifts from the disabled ship to the frantic engineers at Mission Control to Lovell’s anxious family, APOLLO 13 brilliantly recreates the harrowing, heroic mission in all its drama and glory.

This gripping story of human endurance is the basis for Ron Howard’s classic film starring Tom Hanks and Kevin Bacon.
