Even though we haven't reported on it, Night Train is a film I've been eying for while. Mostly because it's the feature film debut from Brian King, whose previous screenwriting credits include Vincenzo Natali's cyberpunk opus, Cypher, but also because I like the film's Shallow Grave meets A Simple Plan vibe featuring a dead man, a mysterious box full of diamonds and three characters who fight to keep hold of them.

The film is scheduled to hit DVD on July 14, 2009 but we just received word from the production that it's available early from Blockbuster. While I don't necessarily like plugging one particular video vendor, particularly ones who try to monopolize the distribution of films, I do like the idea of stores making certain film's available early.

How far would you go to have everything you desire? Christmas Eve… when a veteran conductor (Glover), a young pre-med student (Sobieski) and a struggling salesman (Zahn) discover a dead body onboard a night train, the three strangers find themselves on a collision course with destiny.

Among the deceased man’s possessions is a mysterious box, which fascinates their attention. Upon looking inside, they see a treasure so valuable that the three conspire to hide the body and split the fortune themselves. This decision sets in motion a tense game of obsession and deceit, where greed betrays reason and morality gives way to temptation. With local authorities at every stop and an assortment of suspicious passengers along for the ride, can the three strangers overcome their fixation with the coveted box or will they delve even deeper into the trenches of depravity?

Night Train stars Steve Zahn, Leelee Sobieski, Danny Glover and Richard O'Brien.
