Ready to experience World War II in "4-D"? Head over to the National World War II Museum in New Orleans for the opening of Tom Hanks' latest production,
The 35-minute film takes viewers from Pearl Harbor to V-J Day, and will be shown exclusively in the museum's newly expanded Solomon Victory Theater. Featuring the voices of Kevin Bacon, Brad Pitt, Patricia Clarkson, and Gary Sinise, among others, the movie took five years to plan and complete.
Sensory effects allow audiences to feel the rumbling of tanks and the booming of anti-aircraft fire. "This is not just a widescreen movie," Hanks told the Associated Press yesterday. "There's actual things that pop up, actual elements that come into it that put you in the environment."
