New TV spot and featurette for Getaway starring Ethan Hawke focus on the '68 Shelby Mustang

I'm starting to warm up to GETAWAY, the car chase actioner starring Ethan Hawke and...Selena Gomez. It's the oddest pairing you would never expect, but I can't deny that it looks like a harmless good time. This new TV spot and featurette help to back that up and it seems like they've put something together that is meant to be, pardon the pun, a fun ride. I can certainly dig that and I give props to Hawke for not taking himself so seriously and having fun with his work. I'm a big fan of his work and would like to see more TRAINING DAY level roles for him, but I'll take the in-between stuff like GETAWAY and THE PURGE in the meantime.

Destroy a Shelby Mustang!:

Here's the synopsis:

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

Again, this could be a lot of fun or a waste of time, but with Hawke's presence and the no-brainer aspect this could potentially be a solid late summer sleeper. I don't think anyone is expecting much and that could really work in its favor. Either way, I'm game to give it a shot.

GETAWAY speeds into theaters on August 30, 2013.

Favourite most recent car chase? I forget the name of the movie, but it's that one where the CG cars are chased by those other CG cars and there are all these physically-impossible camera shots and then there's all those CG sparks and flames and...

BULLITT, of course

often imitated, rarely equaled. I have to give props to the car chases in RONIN and DIVA as well.

Easily the Paris chase in John Frankenheimer's Ronin. That was intense from the get go.

Extra tidbit: 2 actually: William Friedkin's To Live and Die in L.A. chase scene on the freeway and H.B. Toby Halicki's original Gone in 60 Seconds chase that lasts about 40 minutes.

I think putting Selena Gomez in this thing could well be stunt casting misfiring and bringing the rest of the film down with it. Re extra tidbit: the chase with the station wagon vs. the three BMWs in Doug Liman's Mr and Mr Smith. It was hilarious, well-choreographed and managed to be both exciting and funny.

Before Midnight might just be the best well made film this year. And Daybrakers is vastly underrated. So what I'm saying is that I will give Hawke the benefit of the doubt because he has done some really great (and still is) work. Mostly overlooked unfortunately.
