NASA must devise a strategy to return Apollo 13 to Earth safely after the spacecraft undergoes massive internal damage putting the lives of the three astronauts on board in jeopardy.
Tracy Reiner (Mary Haise) & Tom Hanks (Jim Lovell) also appeared together in Nothing in Common (1986), Big (1988), A League of Their Own (1992) & That Thing You Do (1996)
Gentlemen, what are your intentions?
Jim Lovell: I'd like to go home.
The version of Blue Moon heard in the film is performed by the Mavericks, although they did not exist as a band until 1989.
A digitally remastered IMAX-format version was released in September 2002. It is about 20 minutes shorter in running time than the original theatrical version. Some of the missing scenes are the dinner that the astronauts have aboard the ship that results in Fred Haise being sick into a plastic bag, and Marilyn Lovell telling the off the press.
