The Movie "9/11," with Charlie Sheen, Opens in Theaters on 9/8 ~ Enter to Win an Autographed Poster and Gift Pack

Do you remember where you were when the Twin Towers fell? I remember being at the office -- I was working as an editor at a publishing company then -- when word started trickling in about the attacks. The owner of the company had a big TV in his office, so we turned on the news in there (fortunately, he was out of town), and everyone stood in front of the TV in shock as we watched the towers fall. Every once in a while, we'd head back to our desks to attempt to work or contact family, but we'd always wander back to the TV eventually. Needless to say, not much work got done that day. Of course, the impact was even greater on those who dealt with the tragedy firsthand. The following movie, 9/11, explores that day in greater detail.

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 five 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.
