It's been well over a year since we last heard any word on Omid Nooshin's LAST PASSENGER, a flick about a madman who hijacks a train and offs passengers one by one while cruising along with no brakes. Sounds like a dark take on UNSTOPPABLE, with absurdist shades of SPEED thrown in as well. What's not to love about a killer on a train flick? Sounds like a hell of a lotta fun to me!
Today we have a new trailer for the Dougray Scott-starring thriller to share with you below and I gotta admit that it looks like it has the potential to be a fun ride. The flick opens in the UK on October 18. No word yet on when it'll hit North American theaters, but we'll keep our ears to the track on this one.
Lewis Shaler (Dougray Scott) is an overworked doctor and devoted single dad heading home with his young son on the last train from London. When he strikes up a relationship with a beautiful and flirtatious stranger, Lewis believes life is finally looking up. But events then take a dark turn when Lewis discovers the guard has mysteriously vanished and the brakes have been sabotaged. Unknown to the handful of remaining passengers, a vengeful sociopath has taken control of the train and is hellbent on crashing it, taking his passengers with him to the grave.
As the speeding locomotive ploughs through stations and level crossings, the body count rises and panic turns to terror. Lewis realizes that the police are powerless to stop the diesel-powered 'slammer' train, and the desperate passengers must find their own way out of this nightmare. Lewis takes the lead in a series of increasingly perilous missions to stop the train before the driver can realize his dark plan...
