Director Courtney Solomon’s “Getaway” is not another entry in the logic-defying (not to mention gravity-defying) “Fast and Furious” franchise, but I’m sure Warner Bros. and company wouldn’t be too mad if you mistaken it for one. After all, gazillions of bucks from moviegoers is nothing to sneeze at. In fact, it’s downright desirable. A case of mistaken identity would definitely have been preferable to betting on Selena Gomez’s tween fans showing up at the theaters. God knows there isn’t a whole lot of Ethan Hawke fans out there to be flocking anywhere, much less to theaters.
Anyhoo. Check out 27 new images from the duo’s latest, the vehicular thriller “Getaway”. I can’t help myself, I just can’t buy Ethan Hawke as a badass behind a car. Does he even own a car in real life? Or a driver’s license?
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.
Starring Hawke and Gomez, along with Jon Voight, Rebecca Budig and Bruce Payne.
Speeding into your hearts this August 30th.
