The trailer for Tony Scott’s Unstoppable has arrived starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine in a film involving an unmanned runaway train carrying a cargo of toxic chemicals. An engineer and his conductor find themselves in a race against time. Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) penned the script and based on what the trailer says it’s based on a true story, but I can’t seem to find exactly what story that is.
The film had a series of snags throughout pre-production including proposed budget cuts that saw Denzel depart from the picture only to come back on two weeks later. The project even saw a short delay during production when a train derailed in Bridgeport, Ohio last November. No one was injured in the accident, but filming for the movie was stopped for the day.
Fox will release Unstoppable on November 12. Rosario Dawson and Kevin Dunn co-star.
