In the case of ‘USS Indianapolis’ there is more than just a ship that sank in the Philippine Sea with a lot of revelations that wasn’t told during the time it sank.

Based on true accounts of those who have survived during the waning days of World War II, the thrilling and inspiring “USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage” tells of the Navy warship USS Indianapolis that secretly delivered one of two atomic bombs that would eventually end the war.

“USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage,” stars Nicolas Cage, Tom Sizemore, Thomas Jane, Matt Lanter, Brian Presley and Cody Walker and directed by Mario Van Peebles. When the Japanese learned of the USS Indianapolis within reach, they attacked and sank the heavy cruiser. The USS Indianapolis’ mission was so classified it was not reported missing, and no one knew the ship had been attacked until four days later. Stranded in the shark-infested waters of the Philippine Sea, the remaining survivors of the USS Indianapolis endured hunger, thirst, heat, delirium, relentless shark attacks and the death of many shipmates. Of the 1,197 crewmembers, nearly 300 went down with the ship. Five days later only 317 men survived and were eventually rescued.
