Space Cowboys (2000)

Coming Out at 4 August 2000 in theaters.

Action, Adventure, Thriller

Space Cowboys is adventure drama film directed and produced by Clint Eastwood. It stars Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, Donald Sutherland, and James Garner as four older “ex-test pilots” who are sent into space to repair an old Soviet satellite.

In 1958, two U.S. Air Force pilots and aspiring astronauts, William “Hawk” Hawkins (Tommy Lee Jones) and Frank Corvin (Clint Eastwood), are testing a modified Bell X-2 when Hawk decides to break a height record. The plane stalls and they are forced to eject and then freefall to lower altitude, narrowly missing a Boeing B-50 Superfortress flying with navigator “Tank” Sullivan (James Garner) as they parachute to safety. On the ground, Frank punches Hawk for putting their lives at risk, but their fight is broken up by flight engineer Jerry O’Neill (Donald Sutherland). Their supervising officer, Bob Gerson (James Cromwell), chastises Hawk for his recklessness, before taking them to a press conference, where it is announced that the Air Force will no longer be involved in space flight tests as this has now been handed off to the newly created NASA, ending the four’s dreams of reaching space.

In the present day, NASA is tasked to prevent a Soviet communications satellite, IKON, from decaying out of orbit and crashing to Earth. The design of the satellite’s electronics is archaic and based on those of Skylab that Frank had developed. Bob, now a project manager at NASA, sends NASA engineer Sara Holland (Marcia Gay Harden) to request Frank’s help.
