Speed

(Jan de Bont, 1994)

Introduced by Schawn Belston, Senior Vice President, Creative Mastering, The Walt Disney Company

New Restoration

Keanu Reeves, Speed

“Pop quiz, hotshot. There’s a bomb on a bus. Once the bus goes 50 miles an hour, the bomb is armed. If it drops below 50, it blows up. What do you do?” Dennis Hopper’s psychopathic Howard Payne sums up the entire plot of Speed to cop Keanu Reeves, impromptu bus driver Sandra Bullock, and the audience in one of the 1990s’ most pared-down, straight-ahead action-thrillers. Don’t ask, just see the Oscar-winner on the big screen in this new restoration! (116 mins., 4K DCP)
