"Now stand by for the greatest show on Earth." Composed of stunning clips and an energizing sound track, this 40 second trailer was initially produced for a movie commemorating the last shuttle mission in 2011. The trailer was updated in 2013 to support the release of two new movies in the series, which are both available in multiple versions:
Launch: All Systems Go
- Main Sequence: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-asg-30
- With Subtitles: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-asg-ce-30
- Split Screen: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-asg-ss
- Tech Edition: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-asg-te
Launch: Maximum Thrust
- Crew Audio: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-maxt-ca
- Crew Audio with Subtitles: vimeo.com/profitic/launch-maxt-ce

The original Launch movie followed the shuttle through rollout, ascent, booster freefall, and the final climb to orbit. The movie is being edited for re-release.
