Welcome to Step 2 of Selena Gomez’s plans to leave her cutesy Disney past behind, and while playing the gun toting owner of a souped up Mustang that Ethan Hawke needs to save his wife, is definitely not as dramatic as her previous role in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers (I’ll save you the google search: yes, she does get naked), who in their right mind could ever picture Selena Gomez as a gun toting owner of a souped up Mustang?
So suspend your disbelief, and buckle up for the first fast and furious trailer for Getaway.
“Getaway’ is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller 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.
Ah, the old mysterious voice on the phone gag. Classic. I’m just waiting for the part where they ask Ethan Hawke if he likes scary movies. Clearly he likes okayish movies comprised of ideas from other movies, or he wouldn’t have taken this gig.
Getaway will be burning some rubber into cinemas on August 30, 2013.
