Check This Out: The Taking of Pelham 123 Poster Debut

That sleek Last House on the Left poster wasn't the only new poster we'll to see today. Sony has debuted the poster for their upcoming summer movie The Taking of Pelham 123 over on JoBlo. The good thing is that a debut like this usually means that we'll also get a trailer, so expect that to hit by the end of the week. In the meantime, check out this new poster, because I think it's a pretty good design. I also like that it sets up a gritty tone. Plus, if you didn't catch this, in the original, the bad guys are referred to by colors and the leader is blue. In this remake, John Travolta is playing the blue character, hence why he has a blue tint.

The Taking of Pelham 123 Poster

The Taking of Pelham 123 is directed by Tony Scott, of numerous action classics, including Top Gun, The Last Boy Scout, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, Spy Game, and Deja Vu most recently. The screenplay was written by Oscar winning screenwriter Brian Helgeland, of L.A. Confidential, Conspiracy Theory, Payback, Mystic River, and Man on Fire previously. While John Godey's novel is credited as the inspiration, this is also a remake of the 1974 film of the same name that starred Walter Matthau. Sony Pictures is bringing The Taking of Pelham 123 to theaters on June 12th this summer.

    This poster looks better than anything Travolta has done in years. Hopefully being with Denzel and Tony Scott will bring back the Travolta we love. The one that doesn't pick garbage roles.

    I'm not crazy about the poster. It offers up nothing about the story; just a couple of big "star shots." Looks like a DVD cover to me. Whenever the studios decide to sell a movie on star presence alone (like 88 Minutes ) you know that you are in trouble.
  • I really want to see it. soon!

    I'm worried that it will not be nearly as good as the original, but heres hoping

    too generic, but i do like most of Scott's films, so i'll give it a chance.
  • very generic thriller poster... being an art director myself, i felt it was way too generic, considering the team involved and the topic.... considering the original poster was a classic in terms of drama, and the story tease.... this could have been better......
  • I think the poster is very good with its gritty color design. Bad ass.
