So we've got Denzel Washington and Chris Pine, each looking badass, some sparks flying, and "Inspired by True Events" on there - but where is the train? IMPAwards has uncovered the first poster for Tony Scott's Unstoppable, that runaway train action movie starring Pine and Washington that we featured the trailer for a few weeks back. I wasn't that impressed with the trailer so it's no surprise I'm not that impressed with this poster. I wonder if market research proved putting a train on there would turn people off? It also looks like a mix of the Live Free or Die Hard and Taking of Pelham 123 posters. Wondering what you guys think.
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.
