After watching the debut trailer of Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke’s Getaway, the first thing that comes to mind is that this film seems to have the story of Taken and the action of the Fast and Furious film franchise!
Getaway centres on former racing driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke), whose wife is abducted by a mysterious man (Paul Freeman). The kidnapper does not want any ransom but pits Magna against the clock; poor husband has no choice but to follow his instructions.
To add to Magna’s misery, a cute-faced carjacker, Selena Gomez, points a gun at him and asks to leave the car. While the kidnapper, who is watching Magna all the time, tells him to kill the girl, the former racer declines the request stating that he isn’t a killer.
‘Good, you will need her help if you want your wife back,’ replies the abductor. That certainly raises question over Selena Gomez’s character’s identity in the film. No doubt we have seen films with similar plots in the past as well, but we are hopeful that the unusual pairing of Selena Gomez and Ethan Hawke will offer more than what is shown in the trailer.
