Speaking of movie trailers, below is the preview for a new Tony Scott moving coming in the fall. It's loosely based on the real incident in 2001, when a runaway freight train with 47 cars traveled near 70 miles with nobody at the controls. Crew members slowed the thing by latching a second locomotive onto the end of the train, and then an engineer lept aboard when the thing had sufficiently slowed. Two of the train's tank cars were carrying hazardous materials. Said one official, "the public was never really in jeopardy." Read this CNN account, and then watch the trailer below. Bit more dramatic, eh?

Tony Scott+Denzell= “Taking of Pelham 123”.

I sense a little deja vu here :)

Note: I know the difference between a subway film and a train film but still get flashbacks to that horrible Pelham 123 film.
