The Escape BMW Film

Time to drive. The newest full-length BMW Film has been released online. Titled The Escape, this one is directed by filmmaker Neill Blomkamp (of District 9, Elysium, Chappie), and stars Clive Owen as "The Driver" along with Jon Bernthal and Dakota Fanning. This marks the return of the acclaimed action series launched by BMW in 2001, a short film series featuring BMW cars made by talented directors. The Escape features the All-New 2017 BMW 5 Series - as well as some kick ass action. In the behind-the-scenes they talk about how it was important for "realism, above all else." I like the way they work in extra mystery with the characters this time, especially with Fanning's background. Hopefully this series will continue with more films from more filmmakers, because I really don't want this to be the end. For now, fire it up & enjoy.

Here's two "behind-the-scenes" videos on the making of The Escape, also posted by BMW on their YouTube:

After the controversial disappearance of their Chief Medical Officer, a shadowy bio genetics company is under siege by the FBI for secretly cloning humans. Amidst the chaos, Molgen’s head mercenary Holt (Jon Bernthal) is sneaking out the last living clone, a young woman named Lily (Dakota Fanning) to a mysterious buyer. Holt has hired The Driver (Clive Owen), accompanied by a heavily armed squadron of fellow Molgen mercenaries, to evade the authorities and deliver Lily and himself to the buyer. The journey takes an unexpected turn and Holt is forced to take matters into his own hands, as the driver once again demonstrates his mettle and extraordinary driving skills. The Escape is directed by Neill Blomkamp. The original BMW Films series called "The Hire" launched with eight short films released in 2001 & 2002, made by eight different directors: John Frankenheimer, Ang Lee, Wong Kar-wai, Guy Ritchie, Alejandro González Iñárritu, John Woo, Joe Carnahan & Tony Scott.

    That was awesome. I can't believe it's been 15 years since the original series. Wow, time flies. Been looking forward to this since it was announced and it didn't disappoint. Love how they worked in that bit of drama and feeling for the character in so little time.
