United 93 Poster
One of our biggest concerns when we first learned of United 93-- previously titled Flight 93 --is that a film based on the event of 9/11 may be a bit too early. Heck, it may be a decade too early for some. Considering most tragic events take decades before any film takes a look back on them, we were shocked to see that we had not one but two films based off 9/11 coming our way this year. We have so far received a teaser trailer for United 93 and a teaser poster for World Trade Center.
Is it the right time? Hard to say, but director Paul Greengrass and victims families definitely think we should never forget.
Look Inside United 93
Acclaimed filmmaker Paul Greengrass (Bloody Sunday, The Bourne Supremacy) writes and directs an unflinching drama that tells the story of the passengers and crew, their families on the ground and the flight controllers who watched in dawning horror as United Airlines Flight 93 became the fourth hijacked plane on the day of the worst terrorist attacks on American soil: September 11, 2001.
Flight 93 recreates the doomed trip in actual time, from takeoff to hijacking to the realization by those onboard that their plane was part of a coordinated attack unfolding on the ground beneath them. The film attempts to understand the abject fear and courageous decisions of those who-over the course of just 90 minutes-transformed from a random assembly of disconnected strangers into bonded allies who confronted an unthinkable situation.
Universal Pictures has released 'A Look Inside' United 93 that gives us a face to face with director Greengrass plus family members of Flight 93 victims.
To check out the inside look of United 93 head on over to Quicktime.
United 93 will have its story heard on April 28th.
