No Escape is the new film starring comedy star Owen Wilson, newcomer Lake Bell and Bond has-been Pierce Brosnan as three ex-pats embroiled in a xenophobic cleanse by a local Malaysian rebel group. Though it won’t do anything for America’s international relations, it is from the same people who brought us the quite awesome Whiplash and Nightcrawler so we have faith.
The official trailer and synopsis is below. No Escape is in UK cinemas from 4th September 2015.
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.
