This actually looks as though it might be good. If you've read the book, you know that a two hour film couldn't really have done the story justice. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

This looks really good. Too bad it's only on Hulu.

Well I just cancelled my Hulu subscription, but I can always sign up again mid summer long enough to see this biggrin

A re-make? The original was very good,I doubt this will do it justice but I'm willing to give it a try.

They won’t have the number of B-25s to match the original. CGI isn’t the same.

Hmmm. Should be a good watch but nothing can compare to the original book. I haven't read it in over 30 years so I might have to dig it out.

Think George Clooney is too old to play Scheisskopf but let's see how he pulls it off.

There were two real ones and the rest were CGI.

Not sure but I think our wires are crossed OG. I agree that the original movie version of Catch 22 had several flying B-25's and Planes of Fame's B-25 Photo Fanny was one of them. It was also one of the two B-25's used in the mini series George Clooney has been filming. They actually flew Photo Fanny across the Atlantic to the island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean for the filming of the mini series and then back to Chino reversing their route.

Chino Airport (KCNO) > multiple stops in US, then > Newfoundland > Greenland > Iceland > Scotland > lost track of them on Flight Aware at this point.
