#Remember911 Giveaway

We would like to introduce you to an awe-inspiring film starring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg titled 9/11, based on the original play, The Elevator, that centers on the events of September 11, 2001.

No matter who you are or where you were, that moment and the aftermath is indelibly etched in everyone’s mind.

The film 9/11 is based on a true story and chronicles the lives of five average, everyday people who find themselves trapped in an elevator during the events of 9/11 in the World Trade Center.
Where were you on the morning of 9/11? For me, I remember turning on the news as I woke up to go to work. I never made it out of bed. I later discovered I had one friend who happened to be in the elevator coming up from the parking below who got out and a friend from high school who didn't.
About 9/11 (The Movie)

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman(The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries), and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

  1. On 9/11 I was in New York. I almost was at the top of the Twin Towers on a tour when everything happened but somehow I had some sixth sense telling me something was wrong that day and ended up taking a tour that was 45 minutes later. I remember seeing the horror on TV, feeling the quake under my feet, watching the people in the street full of dust and debris, watching the bust streets clear in NY and getting stuck in the New York when it went into lock down. I had only be visiting for 2 days on a sweepstakes I had won but it turned into a week before I managed to get a train home. During the time I was there, I offered to help move debris to find people but the police blocked civilians from coming onsite when a few rescuers got killed from falling debris. It was a trip unlike any other in my life. It still bothers me to think about it. I will never forget the faces of those wandering the streets full of dust and dirt but with tear tracks on their face as they searched for news of their family and friends. No matter if you knew someone involved in 9/11 or not, this touched everyone's heart. I'm not sure a film could capture everything but I know it needs to be made so we never forget 9/11.

  2. I was at home on 9/11 caring for my 3 kids who were aged 5 and under at the time,they were watching Sesame Street so I was unaware of anything. My mom called me and I changed the channel to the news,while we are talking the other plane crashes into the other tower live on television,It devastating and heartbreaking and I felt and still feel so bad for the victims and their families,such a senseless act of terrorism.

  4. On 9/11/2001, I was just starting my senior year in high school NYC, maybe a week or two school started. Classmate arrived late to history class and announce the news expecting it to be a joke and then on to next period class, the principal announced the news and did our usual classroom activity except for a few where we talked about it.
