You know… it’s not that I’m against Hollywood making a 9/11 movie, it’s just that I want them to handle it with grace. And the fact that Charlie Sheen is starring in it, along with Whoopie Goldberg… I’m nervous, to say the least.
“Directed and co-written by Martin Guigui, 9/11 centers on five people who “find themselves trapped in an elevator in the World Trade Center’s North Tower on 9/11,” according to the official premise. “They work together, never giving up hope, to try to escape before the unthinkable happens.” One of the people trapped in the elevator is Sheen, which is notable for two reasons: it’s his first movie role since 2013’s Machete Kills, and he’s a notorious 9/11 truther. In 2006 he stated, “It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airlines and hitting 75 percent of their targets — that feels like a conspiracy theory.” Sheen also blamed the destruction of the towers on a ‘controlled explosion’.”
Not long ago I watched Patriots Day. It’s that movie about the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, directed by Peter Berg and starring Mark Wahlberg. They did SUCH a good job with that movie. I literally thought to myself, if/when they do a 9/11 movie, I hope it’s done as well as this. And now… here we are.
A 9/11 movie is about to hit the big screen THIS SEPTEMBER (September 8th to be exact). Fingers crossed they don’t screw this up.
The trailer below that you’re about to watch is in Japanese. That’s because we have a Japanese studio house to thank for the leaking of this trailer.
