After futher investigation they uncover that the train has numerous train cars filled with dangerous chemicals making the entire train into a destructive missle. Can Frank and his new trainee Will (Chris Pine) devise a plan to stop the train before it reaches and destroys the city? Unstoppable is sure to be an action packed blockbuster and is our pick to dominate the box offices this weekend. The film is directed by Tony Scott (Man on Fire, Enemy of the State).
Morning Glory (11/10)
Stars – Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton
Director – Roger Michell
Becky (Rachel McAdams) has her work cut out for her as she takes the director job at the local television morning show Day Break. Becky decides to compliment the on air talent Colleen (Diane Keaton) with the veteran Mike (Harrison Ford). The on air chemistry between the two could not be worse as Rachel realizes that she has quite a bit of work on her hands. Can Becky turn the show around or did she bite off more than she could chew? This film is directed by the talented Roger Michell (Changing Lanes, Notting Hill).
Stars – Eric Balfour, Donald Faison, Scottie Thompson
Director – Colin Strause
Skyline plays of the Steven Hawking claim that when aliens come to visit earth that it will be much like when Columbus found the United States was for the Native Americans. Los Angeles is the target of the first alien landing where bright lights are used to seduce residents into the aliens dangerous plan. The cast of Skyline is not the strongest and the early indications are that this movie will be a bust. The film is being directed by Colin Strause who has extensive visual effects experience but is rather new to the role of director.
Be sure to enjoy all of the current movies in theathers this weekend!
