  • Released theatrically in the USA November 22, 1995. It grossed $35.1 million at the box office. Shot on location in Manhattan. However, because the NYC Transit Authority refused to allow scenes of violence to be shot on location, much of the $60 million budget went toward building a replica of a NYC subway set in Los Angeles. Color by Technicolor. A Peters Entertainment production. Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson previously starred together in "White Men Can't Jump." If you think this is only the second time Wesley Snipes and Woody Harrelson have appeared together in a film, think again: in the 1986 Goldie Hawn vehicle "Wildcats," the pair (then unknowns) co-starred as high school football players. A few days after "Money Train" opened, criminals set ablaze a NYC subway token booth, severely injuring token clerk Harry Kauffman, who was inside. It was believed that this act mimicked a scene from the film, prompting Senator Bob Dole to call for a boycott of "Money Train." Kauffman later died of his injuries and, a few days after his death, suspects were arrested. However upon interrogation of the accused, it was determined that there was no connection between the film and the criminal act. Rated BBFC 18 by the British Board of Film Classification.
