Two of Hollywood's biggest stars go head-to-head in director Tony Scott's (Man on Fire, Déjà Vu) summer box office action hit The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, coming to Blu-ray, DVD, on 11th January 2010 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

A remake of the 1974 suspense classic, based on a 1973 novel by Jon Godey, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 stars two-time Academy Award winner Denzel Washington (Best Actor: Training Day, 2001; Best Supporting Actor: Glory, 1989) teamed with John Turturro (Transformers, O'Brother, Where Art Thou) to battle against John Travolta (Basic, Swordfish) and Luis Guzmán (War, Punch-Drunk Love) in a heart-pounding story full of action, thrills and suspense deep inside the New York Subway system.

After criminal mastermind Ryder (Travolta) takes a subway train hostage, MTA Dispatcher Walter Garber (Washington) finds himself thrown into the middle of the explosive situation as he must find away to rescue all the hostages while not letting Ryder escape.

Bonus material on the Blu-ray and DVD releases include commentary from director Tony Scott, Writer Brian Helgeland and Producer Todd Black. Also included are behind-the-scenes featurettes, including No Time to Lose: The Making of Pelham 123 and The Third Rail - The NYC Subway System.

Walter Garber (Washington) is a New York City subway dispatcher whose ordinary day is thrown into chaos by an audacious crime: the hijacking of a subway train. Ryder (Travolta), the criminal mastermind behind the hijacking and 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?
