I know you’ve been losing sleep wondering how Tony Scott’s remake of The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 would look. This poster, which is exclusive to JoBlo, is among your first hints. (Set photos of Denzel Washington in character being the others.) I don’t think I need to say much more than that, though the opposition between Denzel’s beatific working class-ness and Travolta’s frozen, tattooed glare does make me want to write a poem. If you want to see more, the trailer debuts this weekend in front of The International, which is probably quite appropriate.
See the full poster at JoBlo. Then listen to David Shire’s amazing opening theme to the original below, which I’ll probably keep embedding in every other article about this remake. Because it’s that goddamn good.
