OLEAN, NY (WKBW) - Western New York is one of the stars in a new Hollywood movie out Friday.

The film "Unstoppable" stars Denzel Washington, and parts of the film were actually shot in the southern tier towns of Olean and Portville and in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

The film is about an out-of-control train carrying toxic chemicals and the locals say they are looking forward to the premier.

"I can't wait to see the end of the credits to see Olean, New York at the end of the credits there. It will be one of the only movies I'll stay for the end of the credits," said Olean Fire Chief Robert Bell.

The local theater will be fully staffed and ready to handle the large crowd for opening night where their home town will be the star of the silver screen.
