"United 93"
The horror and heroism of September 11, 2001, is seen from the perspective of the hijacked airplane that did not reach its intended target, thanks to a selfless group of passengers. Described by Variety as “taut, visceral and predictably gut-wrenching,” United 93 chronicles the flight as the four hijackers take control and steer a course of terror. While air-traffic controllers and military personnel scramble in the wake of planes slamming into the Twin Towers, the passengers of Flight 93 realize they are part of another suicide mission—and that they are the only hope to stop it. Written and directed by Paul Greengrass. United 93 has been seen on various HBO channels: HBO, HBO SIGNATURE, HBO LATINO and HBO HighDef.
All 3000 names (AL,V) R-1:51.

Turner and HBO are Time-Life companies. HBO is one of the few TV networks remaining that does not currently brand programming with semi-transparent logos of the main network and each respective theme channel, let alone damned annoying animated ads for other programming across the bottom of the screen.
