The Final Countdown

1h 42m Science Fiction, Thriller 1980

An enormous Navy ship is thrown back through time and given the opportunity to alter the course of history.

”…THIS IS THE U.S.S. NIMITZ… WHERE THE HELL ARE WE?…”

The time is now. The place is aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz, America’s mightiest nuclear-powered aircraft carrier on maneuvers in the Pacific Ocean. Suddenly, a freak electrical storm engulfs the ship and triggers the impossible: The Nimitz is hurtled back in time to December 6, 1941, mere hours before the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. As the enemy fleet speeds towards Hawaii, the warship’s captain (Kirk Douglas), a Defense Department expert (Martin Sheen), a maverick Air Wing commander (James Farentino) and a desperate senator in the Roosevelt administration (Charles Durning) must make an unthinkable choice. Do they allow the Japanese to complete their murderous invasion or launch a massive counter-strike that will forever change the course of history?

Katharine Ross and Ron O’Neal co-star in this spellbinding sci-fi action hit filmed on location aboard the U.S.S. Nimitz with the full participation of the U.S. Navy and the ship’s crew.
