HBO's "The Mystery of D.B. Cooper" Debuts Official Trailer & Poster


The upcoming HBO documentary The Mystery of D.B. Cooper is so strange because it sounds like something out of a heist film. It's so wild that we're just going to give you the detailed synopsis so we don't misspeak any of it's context:

Directed by Emmy®-nominated filmmaker John Dower, The Mystery of D.B. Cooper brings to life the stories of four individuals fervently believed by their family and friends to be the mystery man who hijacked a 727 flying out of Portland, OR, traded the passengers’ lives for $200,000 and four parachutes, lept from 10,000 feet over some of Washington State’s roughest terrain, and was never heard from again. Almost 50 years later, the case continues to confound the FBI and inspire wild speculation as it remains the only unsolved airplane hijacking in United States history.

Drawing from a combination of recreated and archival footage, as well as exclusive interviews with those most connected to the infamous case and its likeliest culprits, this edge-of-your-seat documentary also explores how the heist inspired copycat hijackings and elevated Cooper to “legend” status. The Mystery of D.B. Cooper paints a dynamic portrait of a fabled fugitive whose unparalleled story became folklore.
