Must Watch: First The Taking of Pelham 123 Trailer!
Sony has just debuted the trailer for their summer thriller The Taking of Pelham 123, a remake of the same 1974 movie that starred Walter Matthau. In this remake, Denzel Washington plays the subway officer and John Travolta plays the "bad guy" in a very taut hijacking cat-and-mouse kind of game. I really love this dynamic, with the tension that builds up while one is sitting in his office talking to the other guy, who is on the subway threatening hostages. Could make for a really great summer thriller, which is what I'm looking forward to seeing. Hopefully Tony Scott delivers a solid hit this time, unlike Deja Vu. Thoughts?

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.
