One hundred years after the attacks that inspired this summer blockbuster, it became the highest-grossing film of its day.

The movie was based off a best-selling novel that at one point was titled “Leviathan Rising.” Charlton Heston was considered for the role in the movie, but it went to a different actor.

First featured in the September 2002 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom magazine, this Greener’s Light Harpoon Gun saved the day—and the summer.
