Today I’m excited to announce that Disney’s THE FINEST HOURS will make it’s home entertainment debut on May 24!! This heroic action-thriller tells the true story of a Coast Guard rescue. In 1952, a massive nor’easter struck New England, pummeling towns along the Eastern seaboard and wreaking havoc on the ships caught in its deadly path, including the SS Pendleton, a T-2 oil tanker bound for Boston, where 30 sailors are not trapped inside while it sinks! As word of the disaster reaches the nearby U.S. Coast Guard, officers plan out a daring operation to rescue the stranded men. Despite overwhelming odds, four men set out in a wooden lifeboat facing frigid temperatures, 60-foot high waves and hurricane-force winds!
The film stars Chris Pine (the “Star Trek” films), Academy Award® and Golden Globe® nominee Casey Affleck (“Interstellar”), Ben Foster (“3:10 to Yuma”) and Eric Bana (“Lone Survivor”). According to a recent press release, viewers of the film can enjoy diving into the thrilling eye of the storm with: An all-new documentary “Against All Odds: The Bernie Webber Story,” in which real-life residents of Chatham recall the events that set the stage for the film’s historic rescue mission; Four making-of featurettes highlighting cast members experiences and reflections by members of the U.S. Coast Guard; as well as two never-before-shared Deleted Scenes.
