New Release: Unstoppable DVD and Blu-ray

Unstoppable movie sceneDirector Tony Scott (Spy Game) and actor Denzel Washington (Malcolm X) seem to have a passion for trains, and their second pairing on this topic, Unstoppable, arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on Feb. 15, 2011, from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In the PG-13 action movie, Washington plays an about-to-be-retired train operator who’s on duty and on the tracks when a train is accidentally set moving with no driver. The runaway train is carrying toxic chemicals and heading toward Scranton, Pa., endangering the lives of thousands. After the corporation that owns the train fails to be able to stop it, Washington and young partner Chris Pine (Star Trek), a train rookie, try out a plan of their own.

The action film grossed $79.5 million, more than the train movie Washington and Scott released in 2009, thriller The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 ($65 million).

Unstoppable also stars Rosario Dawson (Percy Jackson & the Olympians), Ethan Suplee (The Dry Land), Kevin Corrigan (The Departed) and Elizabeth Mathis (Tron: Legacy).

On DVD, the movie was priced at $29.98, and $39.99 on high-definition Blu-ray, including a downloadable digital copy of the film.

Special features on the DVD are:

  • commentary by Scott
  • and featurette “Tracking the Story: Unstoppable Script Development.”

The Blu-ray has those, plus four more featurettes:

  • “Derailed: Anatomy of a Scene”
  • “Hanging Off the Train: Stunt Work”
  • “On the Rails With the Director and Cast”
  • and “The Fastest Track: Unleashing Unstoppable.”
