Flight 93 trailer.

Flight 93 is the first of two takes on the events of 9/11 -the second being Oliver Stone's as yet untitled effort with Nicholas Cage- focusing on the 'flight that fought back'. It's an interesting perspective to take on the events (Stone's movie will take place in the aftermath of the attack itself), and if anyone is up to the job handling something like this tastefully, it's assuredly Paul Greengrass who should be seminal in lending an intense realism to the piece; but not in 'Hollywood thriller' fashion. The teaser trailer can be found here , and is sufficiently engaging if a little thin. Whatever the weather this is sure to be one of 2006's most controversial and important movies, taking its cue from Spielberg's Munich and will hopefully handle itself with dignity to bring the most harrowing events of the 21st Century to the screen.
