This is the final film of my year, nothing else looks remotely good and I have a big love for Tony Scott. Gotta love the idea of a train full of explosives and a train full of kids potentially colliding, so insane it has to work.

Depending on how annoying the kids are, I'll probably be rooting for the explosives.
Hey, maybe it's not so predictable after all.

Am I the only one who watches the trailer and thinks that hollywood are seriously running out of ideas?
a runaway train is a dire story for a movie :/

I totally agree, but if they just go head first into it, it could be a real guilty pleasure of an idiotic idea.

Not so sure a story about a runaway train is Hollywood scraping the barrel. There was a film in 1985 called "Runaway Train" starring Jon Voight which received positive reviews. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runaway_Train_(film)

There's been several great films featuring runaway transport: Taking of Pelham 123 (both original and remake), Diehard 2 and of course,my all time favourite, Speed!
