The Final Countdown -
The USS Nimitz is cruising peacefully 200 miles off Pearl Harbour when it is suddenly caught in a storm and bathed in an unearthly green light. Almost immediately the seas are calm again.
The reconnaissance photos taken after the storm to plot the position of the ship, shows a blow-up of Pearl Harbour, circa 1941, with the battleship Arizona visible in the photo - this seems impossible; as the Arizona was sunk in the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour.
It dawns on the officers that somehow they have moved back in tack. Will the crew, with its awesome force, take the opportunity to destroy the Japanese fleet heading for the navel base? And if so, what will happen to the world as we know it?
Hercules In Ney York -
Board with his life on Mt. Olympus, Hercules decides to visit Earth against the wishes of his father, Zeus. Zeus explodes with anger and hurls a thunder-bolt at Hercules who plummets into the sea and is rescued freighter bound for New York. There he is befriended by PRETZIE (Arnold Stang) who whisks him away from a brawling free-for-all with his shipmates.
The plot thickens when Zeus wife Juno sends the dreaded nemesis to take away Hercules god-like strength. Some local hoodlums have just bet a small fortune on Hercules in a weight-lifting competition and when he fails to win, a chase all over New York is on.
