Getaway Synopsis

Getaway is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment starring Academy Award® nominee Ethan Hawke (Training Day, The Purge, Sinister), actress and international music sensation Selena Gomez (Springbreakers, "Wizards of Waverly Place"), and Academy Award® winner Jon Voight (Coming Home, the National Treasure films) under the direction of Courtney Solomon (An American Haunting), who also produced the film.

Former race car driver Brent Magna (Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake, taking it and its unwitting owner (Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.

Rounding out the cast are Rebecca Budig and Bruce Payne.

Out of left field and hitting a shocking number 5 over the Labor Day weekend was foreign flick Instructions Not Included which earned an impressive $10 million. It's rare for a foreign movie with limited nation-wide marketing and only showing in 300+ venues to do so well ($29,000 per venue... for comparison, Iron Man 3 opened around $40,000 per venue).

I’m back from a European vacation that resembled something out of National Lampoon’s including me completely losing my wallet five hours before my plane took off, Mrs. Rotten Week’s iPhone taking a toilet plunge in Munich, getting locked out of the apartment where we were staying, and listening to two-year-old Little Rotten Week say “Auf Wiedersehen” no less than ten thousand times at varying decibels.

In this trailer, the “voice” makes it clear that Hawke’s driver needs Gomez’s hoodie-sporting wild card, so her inclusion isn’t quite as random as I originally thought. There’s even a secret reveal about the car, but watch the trailer and find out for yourself. Still, plot twists and character development likely are in short supply as Getaway makes it clear its focus falls squarely on vehicular insanity.

Hawke plays a man whose wife (Rebecca Budig) has been taken by a mysterious villain. The hero has to speed around town doing whatever the guy says in order to make sure his wife stays alive (they actually make this point twice in the two-and-a-half-minute trailer, in case some people were confused about a minute in).
