Interesting understated trailer. i think that's the only way to 'sell' a film of this nature.

Hopefully he's learning with this film to create tension naturally, and not with another handheld clusterfuck.

Based on everything I've seen (including the brief shot shown in the trailer), expect this one to be handheld.

When the film was announced in August, Variety announced...
"Flight 93" will be shot using hand-held cameras and will be, in large part, improvised.
I've liked Greengrass's past two efforts, so I'm interested to see how he tackles this film. The hand-held cameras make sense in this case, especially since the film is taking place on a plane (and they're actually going for realism on a plane, unlike Flightplan or Turbulence).

For some reason I don't find myself interested in seeing this in the big screen or on dvd. I don't know if it's "too early" or anything like that. I sat through THE FLIGHT THAT FOUGHT BACK and even with kiefer sutherland's voice I felt very uneasy with it all.

I really don't see myself spending money to put myself through that.

Seriously though I always thought that the events that happened on Flight 93 would be one of the first stories told in the film media(not counting documentaries). I know they have other fictional accounts of that tragic day, but this seems to be on a much grander scale.
I am very interested in seeing this but I see Jack's point. I found it somewhat hard to listen to the trailer, so i'm sure it will be a hard film to watch espicially to those who are closer to the situation.

I don't know if I'll see this (like others have said, I was uneasy even watching the trailer), but I do hope they'll do their best to stick with the facts, as we know them. There's been a lot of rampant speculation about what happened on the flight from various parties who had one agenda to push or another.

This will create a lot of media hype. I want to see it since it should be interesting, yet sad.

After watching the trailer I can also say, I think it's just too early for me to visit this subject on the big screen.

After watching the "documentary" Loose Change (you can download this via Bit Torrent sites as the maker has condoned this) I get the feeling this movie could be about just anything.
Anyone able to explain to me how all these people made phone calls using their own cell phones from all the way up there?

You should still get phone recieption even at that elevation. Besides that, how many people these days don't have cell phones?


I think the real clicker here is that they are going to use the phrase "lets roll" in the wrong context. It wasn't some battle cry or anything like that to show the passangers tossing out one liners. It was actually them refering to the cart they were going to break into the cabin with. thus "Lets roll it". That sort of bending of the facts would really be in poor taste and in a subject like this, you can never really be certain.

While I'm interested in the film, I don't agree with the attempt at profiting of it this soon. There are still family suffering from their losses, and people who are having trouble making ends meet now. I might see this if someone I know buys it, or maybe a Netflix rental, but I'd rather hand $10 to a charity than someone making this film.

This is FAR too soon. I got chills just from watching that trailer. For anyone even slightly directly connected to 9/11, this is far too soon.

Where's your references?
The only ones I saw was referred to in Loose Change in which someone actually went up in a plane and tried in a test study and was able to connect at that altitude with a .006 probablility. And some of the same people on this plane appearently made multiple connections?

i think some of them were cel phone calls...most were from the credit card swiper phones built in to the back of the chairs...

also if you are set to roam...it opens up alot of signal not on the in network calling (that most people keep turned off to save money)

Watch Loose Change, it's free and see for yourself. I feel that most of it is just conspiricy theory stuff, but it sure makes me want some answers.

Why was building seven blown at the WTC when it was barely touched?

I think a big audience would be had if a credible TV station made a news special on all the stuff that's come out on the 9/11 stuff to debunk it and see what results from a big budget expert investigation.

But after watching Martial Law 9/11 and Loose Change, I've got more questions than answers from all the information put out.

I've seen enough 9/11 conspiracy footage to fill my need. I don't however believe that the phone calls were doctored by anyone. Especially when various outlets went deep into the flight and I see no reason why Discovery Channel had any reason to play into any sort of theory.

There's other stuff that can be questioned.. the pentagon for example.. but that's not a topic for the moment. we are discussing the flight.

Not intrested in this movie AT ALL. Way too soon to be making a movie about that tragic day.
