Ron Howard's Academy Award-winning take on the Apollo 13 story. The mission, manned by astronauts Lovell (Tom Hanks), Swigert (Kevin Bacon) and Haise (Bill Paxton), starts out as a routine space flight which generates little media interest. But all that changes when an oxygen tank explosion cripples the ship and prompts the famous line, 'Houston, we have a problem'. Now Lovell and his crew have to struggle to keep going, while at Mission Control their colleagues Kranz (Ed Harris) and Mattingly (Gary Sinise) do everything they can to bring them home.

They may take away our lives, but they'll never take our Oscars!!
Is this a remaster over the original release? Just wondering whether to upgrade as it’s one of my favourites
As far as I'm aware, the 2015 20th anniversary release was from a new 4K remaster. And as far as I'm aware, the new 4K UHD release is based on that same 2015 4K scan. I'm not sure if the blu-ray included in the new 4K UHD release is any better than this blu-ray, but I'd guess that it's the same or a slight bump in quality (the reviews on blu-ray.com and other sites are a big vague on how the recent blu-ray stacks up against the 2015 blu-ray, probably because it's largely a moot-point because if someone's buying the UHD release then it's that that they're primarily interested in). It's a solid release and a great price, so if you're not interested in 4K it's a fantastic deal. Hope this helps.
I haven’t seen the first twelve..........
On a sidenote, I'd love it in they included an open-matte 16:9 fullscreen version with the blu-ray or 4K release, it's begging for it. They've released a ~16:9 open-matte version before for imax, but I realise that it'd be a logistical nightmare to have 2 versions on a multi-play release.

Thank you my friend. Yes not interested in 4K at the moment so this looks ideal
