Denzel Washington and Chris Pine ( Star Trek) star in the first trailer just released for Unstoppable, an action thriller to be released November 12.
Directed by Tony Scott, the story follows a railway engineer who teams up with a young conductor to chase an unmanned train with a cargo of combustible toxic chemicals, and control it before it derails and explodes in a city.
The intense footage shows the half-mile train racing down tracks and destroying vehicles and everything in its path as well as threatening other cargo - a group of school kids.
Scott worked with Washington in The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 last year about a runaway subway train as well as on Crimson Tide in 1995. He is set to direct Nemesis, a comic by Mark Millar ( Kick-Ass).
Based loosely on true events, the screenplay is by Mark Bomback ( Live Free or Die Hard, Race to Witch Mountain).
