Unstoppable Trailer

Our good friends at SlashFilm have uncovered the first trailer for Unstoppable, the upcoming Tony Scott runaway train action movie starring Denzel Washington, Chris Pine, Rosario Dawson, a few others. Unfortunately this just looks so outrageously cheesy, we've heard every line in it before, and I couldn't find any part of that I was actually looking forward to seeing in its entirety on the big screen. It also just looks like the guy from Taking of Pelham 123 (meaning Denzel) going toe-to-toe with Captain Kirk when he was still on Earth driving trains. I get what they were going for, but I really don't think this looks good. Enjoy!

Watch the first official trailer for Tony Scott's Unstoppable:

A rail company frantically works with two of their conductors out on location to prevent an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train carrying combustible liquids and deadly gas from wiping out an entire city.

Unstoppable is directed by veteran action filmmaker Tony Scott, of everything from Top Gun to The Last Boy Scout to Crimson Tide to Enemy of the State to Spy Game to Deja Vu and The Taking of Pelham 123. The script was written by Mark Bomback, of Live Free or Die Hard, Deception, Race to Witch Mountain previously. Fox is bringing Unstoppable to theaters everywhere starting November 12th later this year.

    I think it looks sorta fun. I found the trailer for this more engaging than the one for Pelham 123.
  • I got goosebumps in my balls watching that. Weird.
  • Looks good. Tense.
  • Eric
    I think it looks fine. I know I don't watch as many movies as you but I sometimes don't get what makes you say a trailer is great vs. a bad one. You really liked the trailer for Priest which I thought looked really bad but dissed this one which looks equally bad (but has some good actors so I like it more). I guess I don't have the critical eye.
  • Ravster
    There's no such thing as a critical eye. It's all just opinion. And in my opinion, this looks silly.

    Speed on the rails. This film needs a Dennis Hopper.
  • John Doe
    @#2 What?
  • Bliss
    Whoever posted that does not know anything about movies...this looks fun and with 3 great names it will be a success Stop hating!
  • OST
    Wow- this film looks sick! The effects look so good, I can't wait to check it out.
  • wrongturn687
    It looks OK. It won't be anything spectacular, but at the very least it looks like a solid thriller. I won't be seeing in theatres, but I'm deffentially willing to check it out when it comes to dvd.
  • Yo
    hmm.. Well looks like they have said it all on the trailer .. now I do not want to see it I already know what happens, why , how they will solve it and seems like there are also some images of what happens at the end. Great trailer!!
  • Yea...I really didn't think I'd like this, but that trailer was really good. This is definitely on my radar now.
  • tommyturner
    I didn't know trains were still running.
  • Brian Barajas
    i think this looks like all time stupid. in my world tony scott is something of a uwe boll.
  • lego
    agree with #5, premise is just silly. could be some decent acting, but skynet has began beta testing its take over of the world
  • Alex, I often feel like you get your hopes up for stuff that looks like crap from the get-go, but we're in agreement on this one. There is no way, no matter how much I like DW, that I could get excited about a fucking runaway train and two opposites becoming buddies trying to stop it.
  • Scagginsvolley
    The Boarding of Pelham 123. Worst prequel ever.
  • Cloudy with a chance of beefaroni
    Yeah I'm more excited about this movie than I thought I was going to be. May be rather typical but Tony Scott's movies are always worth admission.
  • noneofyourbusiness
    Does a movie about a runaway train really have to get made? this looks dumb as all hell, making what looks like an action movie out of B-disaster movie. "I'm gonna run this bitch down" wow just wow
  • last son
    This movie looks great. Tony Scott is awesome at making action films (Man On Fire/DeJa Vu/True Romance/Domino). This is a must see!!!
  • bo
    The problem with this film is that it's premise is not at all intriguing. Unlike Deja Vu or even Pelham, there is really nothing at stake here, no mystery, no wit, no cool effects. I wonder why anyone decided an unstoppable train was such a cool story to adapt. So, in the end the two engineers manage to stop the train obviously, one or both may die, but no one cares. What special effects are there going to be? A train hitting into a car/truck/signboard? Lame. An exploding train? That's a small effect in a disaster movie. Yawn.
  • Ian
    Denzel Washington likes trains
  • Yeah John Doe, I dunno, when I was watching it my balls went all goosebumped. Odd.
  • Scritti
    Denzel Washington. Tony Scott. A runaway train full of explosives. Things blowing up. And you don't think this looks any good?? Strange. In my Top Ten most anticipated of the year, without question.
  • quaked2023
    10 bucks says Washington dies hahaha
  • ryderup
    Scott knows how to shoot a movie. He just needs to get ahold of the right script (like with Man on Fire)
  • Viral
    What is it with Tony Scott and trains lately? This looks okay, but remember the time when the man used to make movies like True Romance?
    Denzel Washington keeps staring in crap like this and his career will be STOPPABLE. Didnt we see this in speed and speed 2? tony scott you can do better than this junk.
  • Gex
    I predict a simple B movie popcorn flick at best. At worst, another Phelam 123.
  • Eli
    It actually is pretty similar to speed. Still, It looks exciting. That's all people need to get off these days. you give them mindless dribble and they eat it up. I'd watch this because it's based on real events.
  • Duane
    Wow. No mention of the oscar nominated "Runaway Train" from 85? I must be that old.
  • deadpool72
    looked alright,if you don't take it to seriuosly.
  • chilin
    i've just watched the movie in 2:31 mins. the train obviously get derailed before hitting the train carrying the missiles...but did it hit the train with the kids??? Train A leaves the station in Massachusetts at 7 pm travelling at the speed of 150 miles/hr. Train B leaves at another station travelling the opposite way at 9pm at the speed of 200 miles/hr. How many objects, people and missles will be destroyed before colliding head on? DO NOT ASK YOUR PARENTS DERRICK, THIS IS FOR YOUR SAKE. MR. AND MRS. CROBAPLE, IF YOU'RE READING THIS, REMEMBER WHAT WE DISCUSSED AT PARENT/TEACHER NIGHT. -out.
  • ConnachtFan
    I think the line "It gets worse " sums it pretty well fo rme
  • MovieBuff
    What's the big deal - unhook the cars carrying the kids and run the engines into the other train. Movie is over. Snore
  • McWilly
    @ Crapola BAHAHA..... Ill download sometime and watch it on a weekday to paas the time.
  • PeteZXS
    This movie's theme is not new. It's been done to death and usually done rather poorly. This runaway train movie may just be worth seeing in the theater though. I watched them film parts of this and saw some of the attention to detail and realism - it's fantastic. Also, it was filmed in the good 'ol Northeast (not West Coast) and depicts modern and current railroading. Almost every previous runaway train movie or TV movie deals with snow capped mountains and Denver, Colorado for some reason. This is in small towns in Pennsylvania and Ohio, so it'll seem more real to Easterners. This may not be the best movie ever made, but it just might rise to the top of 40 years of crappy train movies!

    I went to see this movie yesterday. It was thrilling, edge of your seat drama. Waht was good about a gripping can't miss a monent movie no patrons where talking. I highly reccomend this movie well worth the cost of a ticket
