Trailers from Hell: Josh Olson on 'The Dish,' Starring Sam Neill

Even More Movies You Never Heard Of! continues at Trailers from Hell with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing “The Dish,” starring Sam Neill, Australia’s top-grossing film of 2000.

This Rob
Sitch-directed, Bill Forsyth-influenced semi-fictionalized dramedy based on
NASA’s use of a radio telescope in New South Wales to beam images from the 1969
Apollo 11 moon landing around the world. Much of the electronic prop equipment
on hand was actually used during the landing but was too heavy to ship back to
the US and ended up in the movie.
