Product Description:

When an inexplicable phenomenon transports a modern nuclear warship back in time to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the crew must decide between allowing the bloody attack to take place and preventing it, which could forever change the course of history. This thrilling science fiction blockbuster features a stellar cast, including Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, Charles Durning, Katherine Ross and James Farentino, as the crew and war era government officials who must decide the future of the world.

Description by Ryko Distribution:

"...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 choose between the unthinkable. 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. Blue Underground is proud to present THE FINAL COUNTDOWN in stunning High Definition with remixed 7.1 DTS-HD and 7.1 Dolby TrueHD soundtracks for the ultimate in explosive home theater excitement.
