Screen­ing de­tails

> Date: Nov 2 > Time: 9.30pm > Venue: Cathay Cine­plex e@Curve, Petaling Jaya, Se­lan­gor and ac­tu­ally film a hulk of a train tear­ing along for real. Scott even got his main stars to do a cou­ple of stunts, the less dan­ger­ous ones.

In one scene, Washington’s char­ac­ter is run­ning on the top of the train, and it’s re­ally the ac­tor him­self run­ning on top of a train car rigged with a har­ness.

Ap­par­ently, Pine de­scribed scenes like that as “urine-pro­vok­ing mo­ments”. Mean­while, Pine had to fake a jump onto the train.

So what ex­actly was go­ing through Pine’s mind when do­ing that stunt? “In the best­case sce­nario, I’m fully liv­ing the moment. I’m Will Col­son. I’m think­ing about sav­ing the world. But more of­ten than not – es­pe­cially in this film – I have a lot of out-of-body mo­ments.

“I’m sit­ting in the truck and we’re wait­ing for ac­tion and Tony Scott comes over and he’s chew­ing his cigar giv­ing me a note.

“Den­zel’s up there stretch­ing get­ting ready to run on the train and I’m just think­ing – this is pretty rad, this is my life, this is what I do for a liv­ing.

“I woke up this morn­ing, had a break­fast bur­rito, a cup of cof­fee, I went into makeup and some­one mas­saged my face and I’m wait­ing for an­other break­fast bur­rito and then I’m go­ing to pre­tend to run on a train. It’s ridicu­lous!” con­cluded Pine, prob­a­bly with a twin­kle in his blue eyes.
