To mark the release of ‘Murder On The Orient Express’ we thought it would be a great excuse for a film list.

Check out the top 5 most popular train films according to Letterboxd

Source Code Banner
5. Source Code (2011)
Decorated soldier Captain Colter Stevens wakes up in the body of an unknown man, discovering he’s involved in a mission to find the bomber of a Chicago commuter train.

Colter re-lives the train incident over and over again, gathering more clues each time. But can he discover who is responsible for the attack before the next one happens?

With 57 votes on our Google + Poll, here are our top 5 movie releases for August 2017.

5. 0% voted for Personal Shopper (MA15+)
Available 5 August – Outdoor from 5 November 2017.

Personal Shopper Link

‘A Hitchcockian Poltergeist meets Single White Female, it’s exactly as confused as that sounds, but just as intriguing. Stewart shows she’s now one of the most interesting actresses of her generation.’ Full Review
Olly Richards – Empire

4. 16% voted for Alien: Covenant (MA15+)
Available 16 August – Outdoor from 16 November 2017.

Alien Covenant Link

‘A return to form for both Scott and the series: a hard-R horror movie, featuring ferocious, acid-dripping space crustaceans, a tough female lead and a bunch of dead-meat crew members.’ Full review
Peter Debruge – Variety

3. 21% voted for John Wick: Chapter Two (MA15+)
Available 16 August – Outdoor from 16 November 2017.

John Wick 2 Link

‘By doubling down on its idiosyncrasies, Chapter 2 justifies the existence of more Wick without overstaying its welcome. It’s a lesson most Hollywood sequels could stand to learn.’ Full review
David Sims – The Atlantic

2. 23% voted for Get Out (MA15+)
Available 9 August – Outdoor from 9 November 2017.

Get Out Link

‘Jordan Peele’s Get Out is the satirical horror movie we’ve been waiting for, a mash-up of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? and The Stepford Wives that’s more fun than either and more illuminating, too.’ Full review
David Edelstein – Vulture

1. 40% voted for Logan (MA15+)
Available now.

Logan Link

‘It opts for something different, and it largely works, giving Jackman a worthy final chapter to hang his claws on.’ Full review
David Sims – The Atlantic
