‘Unstoppable’ Trailer Rolling Like An Out-Of-Control Freight Train

Denzel Washington. Chris Pine. Tony Scott. Not a bad combo, right? The latter directs the former two in “Unstoppable,” the first trailer for which hit the Internet today.

I dig it. Maybe there are malevolent forces, terrorist-type baddies who set the marauding train seen in the trailer on its path to destruction. But I sort of like the idea of a movie with no villain other than failing technology and bad timing. The premise is laid out pretty clear in the trailer: Washington is a train operator, Pine is his trainee. While out on a lesson, the two get word of an out-of-control training hauling enough hazardous waste to put a large area in grave danger should the thing derail. So crazy plan is concocted by Washington to stop the thing. No one wants to do it– too risky. But it’s either that or put a lot of lives at risk. “Speed” on rails? Maybe. Looks fun. Check it out after the jump.
