Check out the explosive action of Getaway starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez in this featurette

Aug. 16, 2013by: Paul Shirey

We're in the final days of the summer movie season and what better way to finish it off than a good, cheesy car chase flick? That's certainly what GETAWAY is hoping for, which is setting itself up to be nothing more than a fun thrillride to top off a pretty explosive summer...with more explosions! Starring Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez, and John Voight, the Courtney Solomon (AN AMERICAN HAUNTING) directed pic has a new featurette on deck that highlights the practical effects of the film, particularly in the brutal car chase sequences. All in a day's work.

Vroom Boom:

Here's the synopsis:

Brent Magna (Hawke) must get behind the wheel and follow the orders of a mysterious man to save his kidnapped wife.

The odd pairing of Hawke and Gomez aside, this looks like a good romp. I wouldn't go into this expecting anything more than the same feeling you'd get at a crash-up derby or a two hour marathon of Mario Kart, which are some great ways to pass the time when you're feeling up to it. The only question is, are you feeling up to GETAWAY?

GETAWAY puts the pedal to the metal on August 30, 2013.

This movie lost all its cred in my book when it cast Selena Gomez as a tough street kid. She sticks out like a sore clit in the trailers. I won't be seeing it.

I havent heard of this movie yet, but I will say its sorta nice to see Selena Gomez making movies that are not sugar coated teen movies...to her credit, she seems to be trying to seperate her past work and get into more young adult type roles.

"Explosion on the bike, ja?"

I love practical effects in films, particularly intricate stunts involving vehicles and Ethan Hawke's a cool actor - I just think they shouldn't have stunt-casted Selena Gomez as the gun-toting street kid hacker.
