Watch: Ethan Hawke & Selena Gomez in Explosive 'Getaway' Trailer
"I want my wife back!" Warner Bros has debuted a trailer for Getaway, an action-thriller with one of those crazy cinematic concepts. Ethan Hawke (popping up a lot recently in Before Midnight, Sinister, The Purge) plays Brent, a getaway driver told he must follow directions from a mysterious guy on the phone to save his wife. Along the way he picks up a mischievous girl, played by Selena Gomez, and some other weird things happen. Basically, it's Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez stuck in a car, and kind of a Fast and Furious prequel, too. This doesn't look that great, but I'm still intrigued to find out what's really happening.
Here's the first trailer for Courtney Solomon & Yaron Levy's Getaway, in high def from Apple:
Brent Magna (Hawke) must get behind the wheel and follow orders of a mysterious man to save his wife.
Getaway is directed by filmmaker/producer Courtney Solomon (of Dungeons & Dragons, An American Haunting) with co-director Yaron Levy, a cinematographer (who shot this film) making his feature directing debut. The screenplay was co-written by Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker. After Dark Films, with Joel Silver, made the movie with producers Courtney Solomon, Allan Zeman, Christopher Milburn & Moshe Diamant, and Warner Bros handling the release. Getaway will hit theaters starting August 30th this year.

How the HELL does this girl get work? She can't act. Why is she recording music? She can't sing. And why would Hawke share the screen with her? Come on. Gattica. One of his best movies.

Selena Gomez is gangzta yo! Miscasting if ever I seen it. Good to see Ethan Hawke as the 'off the charts' driving mastermind though.

I think this movie looks good. It aims to be like a fun movie. Who cares if the movie has been done before, as long as it is entertaining, that is why I watch movies.

Wow. This sounds a lot like the Playstation game called The Getaway. Even had the same plot....
