9.11 investigation

The 9-11 Research companion to the film World Trade Center

World Trade Center depicts the men narrowing avoiding flaming boulders and molten metal. These images are consistent with eyewitness reports of molten steel in he rubble pile, and a study by NASA that showed many parts of the rubble pile were hot enough to melt aluminum five days after the attack. Indeed, the rubble pile continued to smoulder into December, despite being doused with water cannons and heavy rainfalls.

The film World Trade Center set to debut on August 9, 2006, relates the true story of two of the last survivors rescued from Ground Zero, John McLoughlin and William J. Jimeno.

The film is being produced by Paramount Pictures, and directed by Oliver Stone, recipient of three Academy Awards. Like many of Stone's previous films, World Trade Center takes as its subject traumatic events in recent history. But this film's approach is decidedly different from Stone's most controversial film, JFK.

JFK introduced a generation to evidence that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not the work of a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, but involved a conspiracy reaching the highest levels of the US government. Stone does this by recounting the struggle of District Attorney Jim Garrison to win a conviction of suspects in that conspiracy.

Unlike JFK, World Trade Center does not directly address the many challenges to the official story of the attack. However, like JFK, it may have a profound effect on the public's understanding of the film's subject by depicting events that have been ignored by the mainstream media, such as sounds of explosions as the Towers came down, molten metal in the rubble pile, and the precipitous collapse of WTC 7 at 5:20 in the afternoon.

World Trade Center follows McLoughlin (played by Nicholas Cage) and Jimeno (played by Michael Pena), and their families, on the day of the attack. The two men, who had never met eachother, are in other parts of the city as the attack begins. Neither see the plane crashes, and World Trade Center doesn't show them, keeping the movie focused on events that the men and their families witnessed.

9/11 V endetta : THE HAUNTING "Don't just see it ... BE IT!" on Fri Eve Aug 02.Aug.2006 17:57

PDX 9/11 Truth Alliance


For the evening of Friday August 11th, we are organizing a "haunting" of Portland openings of Oliver Stone's Hollywood soap opera extravaganza WORLD TRADE CENTER.
As I understand it, the Oliver Stone soap opera opens in "major cities" on Wed Aug 9th, but in a 'berg' like Portland Oregon, not until Fri Aug 11th. Last I checked (yesterday), it was unclear what screens in Portland would carry that opening.

Please add comment if you have more solid info on Portland opening.

Come, collude with us

World Trade Center is a dramatic 9/11-themed film set to be released by Paramount Pictures. It is directed by Academy Award winner Oliver Stone and stars Nicolas Cage, Michael Peņa, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Stephen Dorff, Jay Hernandez, and Michael Shannon. The MPAA rated it "PG-13" for "intense and emotional content, some disturbing images and language." [1] It is billed as an uplifting story about everyday New Yorkers helping one another amid a cataclysmic tragedy. It is the second theatrical movie about 9/11, following United 93. It is scheduled for release on August 9, 2006.

Having gotten an invitation to an advance screening of Oliver Stone's latest film 'World Trade Center' in San Francisco last week, I gladly took up the offer to see this much-anticipated film two weeks before the official opening.
