We’re in the throes of the dog days of summer, but that doesn’t mean the summer blockbusters are slowing down any time soon! Warner Bros.’ latest action thriller, “Getaway” might be just the jolt you need to get back into the swing of the summer season one last time before autumn comes.

“Getaway” stars Ethan Hawke and Selena Gomez and involves a former race car driver who steals a custom car:

‘Getaway’ is the gritty, heart-pounding action thriller from Warner Bros. Pictures and Dark Castle Entertainment in which former race car driver Brent Magna (Ethan Hawke) is pitted against the clock. Desperately trying to save the life of his kidnapped wife, Brent commandeers a custom Shelby Cobra Mustang, taking it and its unwitting owner (Selena Gomez) on a high-speed race against time, at the command of the mysterious villain holding his wife hostage.

A cool featurette, called “Destroying a Custom Shelby” is out now, featuring Hawke, Gomez and the destruction of a really coo car. Check it out below the post.

“Getaway” comes to theaters Aug. 30. You can learn more about the film at its Facebook page and website. What do you think about “Getaway”? Do you think it’ll be just the right cap to the end of the summer blockbuster season? Give your opinions in the comments section below!
