No Escape could be the perfect way to move from the big budget summer action films into the autumnal awards season. The Pierce Brosnan/ Owen Wilson flick looks like a thriller with weight behind it – something with nutrition following the empty calories of the summer season. Here’s the new poster and trailer for the Asian-set drama that co-stars Lake Bell.
If the above trailer didn’t excite you, then here’s the official synopsis:
Jack (Owen Wilson) is a man desperate to protect his family in this intense, fast-paced action thriller that will leave you breathless. As he relocates his family to Asia, with wife Annie (Lake Bell) and their two young girls, Jack has no idea of the terror that lies in store. Within hours of their arrival, a violent political uprising has swept through the city and the family are on the run frantically searching for safety as rebels mercilessly attack, executing all foreigners.
With seasoned expat Hammond (Pierce Brosnan) as their only ally, time is against Jack and his family as they are viciously hunted down. Desperately attempting to survive in a country under siege, their courage is put to the ultimate test.
No Escape opens in the UK on 4 September 2015.
