Tony Scott and Denzel Washington's Unstoppable trailer comes speeding out of nowhere

Aug. 6, 2010by:

Here's a loud-looking film that's been pretty damn quiet up until now.

UNSTOPPABLE, the latest collaboration between filmmaker Tony Scott (EMMA'S WAR, THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123) and Denzel Washington (THE BOOK OF ELI, THE TAKING OF PELHAM 123), is opening in just under three months, yet this is the first anything we're seeing of the film? That's usually indicative of a problematic movie. But I like Tony Scott. I like Denzel. I like Chris Pine. I like 'em together! So I will hold out hope that this will be a sound locomotive action-drama worth checking out. What do you think?

Check out the trailer below or head on over to MSN Movies to see it in HD. UNSTOPPABLE speeds its way into theaters on November 12th.

Synopsis: A 20th Century Fox drama about a runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals, pits an engineer and his conductor in a race against time. They're chasing the runaway train in a separate locomotive and need to bring it under control before it derails on a curve and causes a toxic spill that will decimate a town.

Extra Tidbit: UNSTOPPABLE marks the fifth collaboration between Tony Scott and Denzel Washington.

i can dig it. Pelham was decent but really entertaining on first watch. I think this one looks a lot better though.

Looks like fun.

I love watching Tony Scott's shooting style alone, so anything he does, I'm game.

Also, funny how despite the "bad guy" being a train, there's still gunfire and car flipping a ridiculous amount of times. I still dig it though.

I think they're going to try to attach another train to the back of the last car on the runaway train then have it start going in the opposite direction to slow it down.

The Book of Eli was AWESOME! don't mess with Denzel!

this looks interesting, but also kinda straight forward. I hope there's some kind of plot twist.

I feel like someone found a rejected Speed 3 script, changed the title, and gave it to Denzel and Scott.
Scott's last few films have only been average to me, so I'm not expecting much from this film based on the trailer.

I'm glad I read all your comments w/out viewing the trailer. Now I know it showed too much and I should avoid it and just watch the movie.

Always entertaining

Tony Scott and Denzel's films are always entertaining. Deja Vu and Pelham were both entertaining but neither have matched the brilliance of Man on Fire. Seriously that is one of my favorite movies ever. So touching and the visual style is so unique. Even though I know this won't be as good as Man on Fire I think it looks like an interesting film. We need more movies involving runaway trains. I just watched Back to the Future 3 the other night and it reminded me how much I love that final climax

I remember hearing about this a year back, when Chris Pine was the new hot actor and Tony Scott was making yet another Denzel movie. And while I've been getting tired of their collaborations (Pelham, I think, put me over a little much) this actually looks pretty good.

I credit that in part to the fact that this isn't some sort of terrorist or cop movie. A little more in line with disaster films, and I'm getting a definite "Runaway Train" vibe, or maybe evn "Crimson Tides," in my opinion Tony

I've never heard anything about this film until now & that synopsis makes it sound terrible. Maybe the train does derail, all three of them end up covered in toxins & become the three toxic avengers. Bring on the mops!!! Now that would be a film.

Looks good. Scott and Denzel make a good team and this looks up to par with their previous efforts. Also, Chris Pine NEEDS to be in more movies.

This looks entertaining. I enjoy these collaborations, and I'm a sucker for pretty much anything Denzel Washington (Tony Scott less so), so I think I would probably enjoy this. Granted, Pelham 123 wasn't a great movie, but it was at the very least entertaining, and this looks better. We'll see, but I'll probably check it out in the theater.

I've always enjoyed the Denzel + Tony Scott collaborations, but now I think they're starting to wear their course. Pelham 123 was quite mediocre. And for those people bitching about the trailer spoiling the movie, what's there to spoil? The plot is about some guys stopping some train from causing mass destruction, it's not like there's much to digest.

Trailer Issues

I HOPE Hollywood read these comments from the fans -- STOP REVEALING THE ENTIRE PLOT!!! It's incredible how many trailers I've seen in recent years that just revealed everything -- LISTEN, as I have suggested, for those people who put the trailers together!! Sit down in a dark room and study the teaser for Independence day!!! SERIOUSLY!

Always up for a classic Denzel action/thriller kind of movie. Also nice to see Chris Pine getting more screen time.

To bad the trailer revealed the entire plot. Hopefully there is some twist to it not shown ..

I love Denzel and Tony Scott. Chris Pine is a nice new fresh face in movies but just something about this movie smells like a stinker in the making.

I've always been a fan of Scott's visual style. Maybe his movies are hit or miss, but his style is really visceral.

Wow....

Looks like a great action thriller to me and I can't wait. Denzel, Pine and Scott = Ticket! I really like the story as well cause trains truly are unstoppable forces.

Doesn't look half the film Runaway Train is.
Come to think of it, it looks far too much like Atomic Train (Rob Lowe trying to stop a train with nuclear chemicals from hitting a city).

I'll wait till video.
