“We prepared for everything. Not for this. Not for something this size. There’s no plan.”
World Trade Center gives an account of the tragic events of 9/11 from the personal perspective of two Port Authority police officers, John Mcloughlin and Will Jimeno, who were real life survivors of the attacks, and the experience if their families.
Nicolas Cage donated his fee for World Trade Center to charity and 10 percent of all ticket sales across the United States went to charitable organizations that honor the memory of those lost in the September 11 th attacks on the Twin Towers and provide ongoing support to their families
Nicolas Cage Quotes:
I think it’s a positive film, it’s about encouragement, that’s where it’s cathartic, these people are real people, real heroes, who sacrificed themselves for the benefit of others on 9/11, and they survived. I think that is encouraging and healing.
I don’t see this movie as entertainment. I see it as story telling which depicts history. Having said that, I have to go down the red carpet tonight and there will be entertainment based shows there. I am going there in solidarity with John Mcloughlin and all the other men who were on first response, who risked their lives on 9/11 and I’m doing that for solidarity.
