When the trailer played before “Inside Man” last week at the famed Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, audience members began calling out, “Too soon!” In New York City, where 9/11 remains an open wound, the response was even more dramatic. The AMC Loews theater on Manhattan’s Upper West Side took the rare step of pulling the trailer from its screens after several complaints. “One lady was crying,” says one of the theater’s managers, Kevin Adjodha. “She was saying we shouldn’t have [played the trailer]. That this was wrong … I don’t think people are ready for this.” (via Newsweek.com)
Wrong…not too soon. This movie is in fact long overdue. Watch the trailer yourselves at the official movie website below.
It is about time that Hollywood addresses the War on Terror upfront and based in reality. Islamic terrorists want to kill Americans and are organized in world war to do so. Not Russians, not neo-Nazis…. Islamic radicals whose teachers are in this country and all over the globe spewing hate and death to a generation. They publicly pledge to bring down Western civilization. Yet we are afraid to deal with the facts. Instead, Hollywood glorified a fantasy film by a left-wing ideologue. United 93 is long overdue.
How dare we offend Upper West Side sensibilities! *sarcasm off*
Again my friends, offending the liberal sensibilities and ostrich mentality is also long overdue. The Democrat Party and their collaborateurs at the TV network news divisions have tried to bleach from our memories those horrific images of 9/11/2001. I thank God that director Paul Greengrass and Universal Pictures have the guts to show some of our American heroes during the hours of our nation’s darkest day.
I saw “Flight 93” on the A&E Network and it was enraging, enthralling, horribly sad, and wonderfully uplifting. This is an American story that must be told. I hope to be first in line on April 28 to see United 93.
