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.
