Back in 1994, Charlie Sheen and Kristy Swanson starred in "The Chase," a comic thriller about a crook (Sheen) who escapes jail by kidnapping a young woman (Swanson) and driving toward freedom. (Spoiler: they fall in love.) (Second spoiler: Anthony Kiedis is in this.) (Third spoiler: Henry Rollins is too.)
"Getaway," a 2013 thriller starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez, is like "The Chase," but minus the comedy and plus healthy doses of "Taken," "Phone Booth" and "Fast and Furious 6." Hawke plays the regular joe in this one, a race car driver (?) whose wife is kidnapped by Jon Voight. The only chance she has at surviving the ordeal is if Hawke's character can complete a few nefarious tasks. Things get complicated, however, when he jacks a car owned by a very noncompliant and violent Selena Gomez. Random coincidence? Looks that way!
All of which is to say, HuffPost Entertainment already purchased tickets for this one. Watch the trailer for "Getaway" above; the film is out on Aug. 30.
