Tom Hanks attended an IMAX screening at the California Science Center to mark the March 29 release of the "'Apollo 13': Anniversary Edition" DVD
The Oscar-nominated star Tom Hanks has attended an IMAX screening at the California Science Center to mark the 10th anniversary release of 'Apollo 13': the motion picture on DVD with now added bonuses, special features, and documentaries, all of which will answer people questions about 'Apollo 13': the movie and the mission.
Directed by Ron Howard, the film portrays the trials, tribulations and ultimate triumph of the 1970 Apollo 13 mission, in which a crippled space capsule made a life-or-death race to the safety of Earth. The two-disc anniversary DVD itself boasts a bounty of extras which do not include on previous editions, including two new documentaries, "Lucky 13: The Astronaut's Story" and "Conquering Space: The Moon and Beyond."
