Closed: Win The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 on DVD

TakingofPelham123-DVD.jpgThe Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 was recently remade by Tony Scott and starring John Travolta and Denzel Washington, and whatever you think of the film you can't deny that these are two heavyweight actors with an equally heavyweight director behind them that delivered a great ride of a thriller.

Now you can win one of three copies of the DVD through Filmstalker, not the old version either, this brand new one just released.

Here's the official blurb for The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 for a reminder of the film:

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?

The DVD that you could win features the following extras:

Commentary featuring Director Tony Scott, Writer Brian Helgeland, and Producer Todd Black "No Time to Lose: The Making of Pelham 1 2 3" "The Third Rail - The NYC Subway System" "Marketing Pelham" "From the Top Down: Stylizing Character"
