The reference to Hitchcock's Thirty-Nine Steps (Captain Flint clinging to outside of railway carriage) confirms what we already knew; it's a "based on" approach, not a faithful adaptation. But that didn't stop Hitchcock's mangling of Buchan's plot making a great film, so the new S and A may be a good film on its own terms.
On balance, the trailer made me want to take my grandson to see it when the time comes.
