Trailer Info and a Poster for The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

JoBlo has debuted the new poster for director Tony Scott's The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, coming to theaters on June 12. The site also says that the first trailer will hit theaters this Friday with Sony's The International.

Denzel Washington stars as New York City subway dispatcher Walter Garber, whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. John Travolta stars as Ryder, the criminal mastermind who, as leader of a highly-armed gang of four, threatens to execute the train's passengers unless a large ransom is paid within one hour. As the tension mounts beneath his feet, Garber employs his vast knowledge of the subway system in a battle to outwit Ryder and save the hostages. But there's one riddle Garber can't solve: even if the thieves get the money, how can they possibly escape?

Poster looks alright, nothing special. I know my friend Alex has been waiting forever for some info on this movie. Trailer is now online and you can watch it by clicking the above link. It looks decent, but I cant help think that the story has been done before.

I'm getting sick and tired of watching Travolta playing the bad guy. He's so typecasted.
