But this year, TUMI has set a new precedent with one of its iconic pieces featured in the upcoming action movie High-speed train, premiering August 4 in Malaysia. The luxury travel brand has landed a starring role in Sony Pictures’ upcoming original action thriller starring Brad Pitt. The brand unveiled its 19 Degree Aluminum Briefcase, which will be the briefcase the characters will be chasing in the film.
