Vroom vroom: new film 'Getaway' is a high-pressured car chase action epic starring Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez.
No, Getaway isn't the title of a new idyllic holiday movie where beach-bodies lounge under palm trees to ukulele music - it's the name of new action-packed crime thriller from joint directors, Courtney Solomon and Yaron Levy.
Perpetually goatee'd Ethan Hawke (Before Sunrise, The Purge) plays Brent Magna, a former racing driver whose mad skills are exploited by a mysterious stranger, who has kidnapped Magna's wife Leanne (Rebecca Budig) who, as reiterated in the trailer repeatedly, is beautiful. Why has she been kidnapped? How on Earth can her kidnappers constantly see what Magna is up to? (We'd love to know what phone network he uses that doesn't cut out when he's in a tunnel, seriously).
Cue a film that gives the impression of a mix between Taken (2008) and Drive (2011) - a man must drive like crazy to save the woman he loves from the evil clutches of an omniscient antagonist with a generic European 'evil baddie' accent.

Brent Magna is a former racing driver who discovers that his wife has been kidnapped by an unknown man. The man is able to communicate with him (as well as watch him) and assures him that his wife will live as long as Brent does exactly what he's told. Thus, he embarks on a deadly race in a Shelby Cobra Mustang, knocking anything and everything out of his way while building a steady collection of cops on his tail. Things go awry when a young girl with a gun attempts to gain access to the car and Brent is forced to disarm her and take her with him to rescue his wife. Time is running out; he must provide the kidnapper with exactly what he wants while attempting to avoid getting caught on the way - otherwise, the show's over.
