Ethan Hawke is racing to get his wife back, and Selena Gomez is the only one who can help him. This is the premise of “Getaway,” the duo’s new chase thriller, which just released a brand new trailer via Warner Bros.’ YouTube channel.
In “Getaway,” Gomez plays “The Kid,” a young thief who gets unwittingly dragged into Brett Magna’s life and problems. Magna (Hawke) has a short amount of time to complete the tasks set before him by a mysterious voice on the other end of a cell phone call.
Gomez, who is up for two VMAs this year, gets to show off another side of her acting chops that didn’t get as much practice while strutting around in a bikini and robbing people in “Spring Breakers.”
“Getaway” opens on August 30.
