"Jenny, prepare yourself for a shock: I'm the Rocketeer."

This month go back in time to 1938 — a simpler period where the bad guys where ugly and the good guys flew through the sky on rocket packs.

Billy Campbell stars as Ciff Secord, a stunt pilot who discovers a jet pack that enables him to fly and engage in acts of daring-do. Too bad, Cliff's plans to become Los Angeles' newest superhero are complicated when the FBI, the Nazis (hiss!) and Howard Hughes enter the fray. With a supporting cast that includes the lovely Jennifer Connelly, Alan Arkin, Timothy Dalton and LOST's Terry O'Quinn (!), THE ROCKETEER is a movie that deserves to be rediscovered by today's youth. It's fast-paced, a whole lot of fun and features some of the coolest retro-styled aesthetic you're likely to see in a comic book movie. Joe Johnston (who brought audiences CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER) is responsible for this great piece of throwback entertainment. Bring the whole family and strap in for a rocket-propelled matinee of fun, fisticuffs and flying men.
