Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez are dodging more than traffic in the latest trailer for Getaway.
Directors Courtney Solomon and Yaron Levy’s movie may have a heat beating beneath its hood, but the trailer wants you to know one thing: there will be car crashes.
Ethan Hawke stars as a man desperately attempting to free his kidnapped wife. In order to get her back, he must complete a series of potentially deadly tasks from a mysterious man (Jon Voight). The premise sounds similar to 12 Rounds or Saw, except this one is behind the wheel of a car.
Our hero’s mission to rescue his wife is soon complicated by a would-be carjacker (Selena Gomez). He quickly discovers that he’ll have to rely on the scrappy girl if he wants to see his wife again. Judging from the trailer, a series of shootouts, explosions, and car crashes will soon follow.
Getaway is the latest effort from An American Haunting director Courtney Solomon. He’s also the man responsible for helming the seriously misguided 2000 fantasy Dungeons & Dragons. In other words, it’s hard to tell how this one is going to play out.
Ethan Hawke has been a very busy guy here lately. Last year he starred in the flawed bu enjoyable supernatural horror flick Sinister. This year he re-teamed with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy for Before Midnight, the third installment of their Before series.
The talented actor can be seen next in director James DeMonaco’s horror thriller The Purge. Ethan Hawke stars as a man who tries to protect his family during an event where all crime is legalized for 24 hours. The film, which co-stars Lena Headey and Max Burkholder, opens this Friday (June 7).
Ethan Hawke fans can catch the actor alongside Selena Gomez in directors Courtney Solomon and Yaron Levy’s Getaway later this summer. This film opens acorss North American on August 30.
