The trailer for a new September 11th movie staring Charlie Sheen and Whoopi Goldberg hit YouTube Wednesday.
In the one-minute and thirty-second clip from the movie “9/11” posted by a Japanese production company, viewers see Sheen and others get trapped in an elevator after terrorists crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center.
The movie, adapted from a stage play titled “Elevator” by Patrick Carson, dramatizes events that happened that day based on actual voicemail messages left by the victims of the terrorattack.
Co-written and directed by Martin Guigui, the trailer shows Sheen’s character get trapped in the elevator as Goldberg — who plays a World Trade Center employee — tries to get him and his co-workers out during the attack.
Sheen being cast as the lead character has raised some eyebrows as he has been a vocal 9/11 truther, saying in 2006 that “a controlled demolition” took down the twin towers.
“We’re not the conspiracy theorists on this issue,” Sheen told Alex Jones. “It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 per cent of the targets –that feels like a conspiracy theory.”
“I’ve done a lot of research,” Sheen said during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” “And it’s not just me. It’s the people that have come before me, the experts, the engineers, the physicists, the scientists and the scholars that raised a lot of these things. And I took a look at their research and said, ‘Yeah, it doesn’t add up.'”
The movie hits theaters September 8th.
