Pearl Harbor (movie)

Pearl Harbor is the title of a war film released in the summer of 2001 by Touchstone Pictures. It stars Ben Affleck, Alec Baldwin, Josh Hartnett, Kate Beckinsale, and Cuba Gooding Jr.. It was a dramatic re-imagining of the Attack on Pearl Harbor, and it was produced by the team of Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay, who had previously been involved with such action-packed blockbusters as Armageddon and The Rock. The final section of the movie relates the Doolittle Raid, the first American attack on Japanese land of WW 2.

It was released Memorial Day weekend in 2001 and was released on DVD to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the attack.

The movie cost approximately $140 million to produce, and it earned about $200 million in domestic gross. This was considered to be a disappointment, due to the accounting methods used to determine the net profit made by motion pictures.
