This trailer for Getaway has Ethan Hawke playing a dangerous game in a fast car

Jun. 5, 2013by: Niki Stephens

From the director of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS....

If you were one of the few who weren't scared away after that opening then I'll warn up that the rest of this isn't going to much better.

The first trailer for GETAWAY has debuted and it is something to behold. Remember those pictures we saw of Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez in a movie together? This is that movie. Sorry to disappoint that it wasn't 1994s THE GETAWAY with Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger or the original version from 1972 with Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw. Actually, this is kind of the opposite of all that.

Hawke must play a game from behind the wheel of car if he ever wants to see his wife again. Do what the crazy man says or else. Then in the middle of it, Gomez tries to steal the car at gunpoint and obviously that doesn't work out. The crazy guy makes Hawke take off with Gomez and tells him to kill her. Nothing good can come of this...and nothing does. I love Hawke, but WHY???

Synopsis: Getaway is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment in which former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner (Selena Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.

" I just want my kids back!" - Tom Jane, Arrested Development

I thoroughly like Ethan Hawke as an actor, but that guy just makes some WTF!? decisions with the projects he picks. And that last line of the trailer made me instantly think of the line in my title.

I wish he said to Gomez "IIIII'm gonna go with my instincts on this one. Saddle up partner!"

I'll see just about anything Hawke does just to watch him act. He's an interesting dude. His voice is going quick cause of the smoking too. Damn

The directors are also tied to a lot of B-action flicks as producers and cinematographer / camera ops. Not that it means the movie will be good, but hey, here's hoping that it s decent B-level action flick held up by A-list performers (okay Selena Gomez is questionable as A-list). I don't think it looks terrible. It could end up being a Transporter level movie. A decent time-waster.

Getaway 2013

What's with the hate? i think the trailer's pretty good! its one of the better one's I have seen this year. Ethan Hawke has been pretty consistent as an actor I don't think this will be a let down.

I'm willing to give this a shot. Ethan Hawke is a good actor and him at the wheel of a Shelby Mustang does sound pretty entertaining. Yeah, Selena Gomez looks more than a little out of place in a gritty action thriller, but I guess she could surprise us. I'd love to see Ethan Hawke return to sci-fi, Gattaca was great.

The negative is for all the shills who signed up to pump this trailer

As for the movie, it looks okay. Not great, but okay. However, all the shills taking over this page make me suspect it sucks which is why they're pumping it so hard.

Well that came out of left field

I wasn't expecting this to be anything good. Since well DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS is terrible, its so terrible I forgot it even existed. But this movie looks fuckin crazy, looks like solid real action, take the plots from some other well known movies and mash them together and you got this. I am down, plus hawke is the shit.

Despite everything, if at least it'll be R rated there's a chance it might work.

You know why this looks good to some people?

...because the trailer is recycling just about every tired cliche there are for the formula movies for: "get my wife/kid back," "good guy pawn of the puppet master antagonist," and "expert race car driver pushed to the wrong side of the law." Basically, if this looks good - congratulations. You are exactly the type of movie-goer that cynical studio executives use algorithms for to produce lifeless retreads of stale ideas. The same studios that are paying some schmuck 2 dollars an hour to create

Remember, this is a business. If that formula has a target audience that will pay money to see it, then they will keep making these kinds of films. Taken and Taken 2's box office receipts are proof of that.

Which makes me think somebody's marketing department is flooding this site to promote this movie. I'm waiting for David Manning to come on here and rave about this trailer (check A Knight's Tale on Wikipedia for the full story if you don't know/remember the reference).

...playing a hood kid - don"t buy it at all, not for a second. Awful bit of casting IMO

Whats with the fake reviews?

The inclusion of Selena in this movie will ruin it. But besides that, smooveluv is right. What's with all these fake accounts giving praise to this thing. Are studios seriously trolling joblo to pump up trailers? time to strike back!

Ethan Hawke always chooses good projects so i get a feeling this one could be good. Training Day, Gattaca, The Before series, Lord Of War, Snow Falling on Cedars, etc.
