Korean Pelham posters

May. 25, 2009by:

One of the less heralded films being released this summer is the Denzel Washington/John Travolta actioner THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123 , a remake of the 1974 film of the same name. Washington plays a subway dispatcher who must stop Travolta's gang of ruthless thugs from killing hostages for a large ransom. We here at Joblo recently conducted a "predict the summer box office" pool and I don't think this film made a single top ten list. Apparently the Korean's are more jacked about a good hostage thriller than we are. Check their posters below.

Very average posters.

Can I just make a small constructive criticism? It should be like standard procedure that everytime there's an article about an upcoming movie the article includes the release date.

Most of the time you guys include it but here it's missing.

Cheers.

While Washington and Scott are generally a fairly good team, I can't help but feel Washington already made this movie with "Inside Man." Or, more to the point, he made a movie that's as much a reflection of New York today as the original "Pelham" when it came out.

Not to mention only Tony Scott would think of putting Denzel in a role once inhabited by Walter Matthau. There was a time I would've been stoked to see Travolta butt heads with Denzel. Since the trailers, not so much.

But the cast is pretty solid, so it might not suck. Or it might.

I LIKED THE NEW TERMINATOR

I like the Team Scott and Washington. I don't mind remakes now, its being done almost every year. I also miss the action films. More and more films are becoming Kiddies or Comedies. I can't really count Terminators and Treks as action movies.

@ extra tidbit

LOL! I've also wondered the same about these guys:

Ridley Scott - Russell Crowe
Tim Burton - Johnny Depp
Martin Scorcese - Leonardo Dicaprio
David Fincher - Brad Pitt
James Cameron - Anrold Schwarzenegger (ok, not anymore)

I've never watched the original to this film so i guess I could like it. :)
