Ethan Hawke has probably been having one of the best few weeks of his career. His latest collaboration with Richard Linklater and Julie Delpy, Before Midnight, has opened to rave reviews, he’s got a thriller called The Purge set to hit theaters while riding the momentum of the inexplicable buzz that’s been generated by its ad campaign, and now a trailer has debuted for his new movie, where he gets to live out his lifelong dream of working alongside Selena Gomez.

Okay, Gomez hasn’t been acting for all that long, so maybe lifelong dream is overstating it, but she’s pretty popular with the young folk, so maybe Hawke’s kids are at least pretty excited to see their dad working alongside their idol? And if you’re a fan of movies where cars get driven really fast for no reason, things explode, and Jon Voight speaks with a silly accent, then maybe you’ll be excited for Getaway too. There’s only one way to find out, and that’s to watch the trailer.

As you can see, that whole “drive fast to save your wife” plot seems to be pretty thin, and Gomez doesn’t seem to be very believable as a car jacker, but if you’re in the mood for dumb fun come Labor Day, then maybe you can overlook all of that in order to have fun with the car chases and explosions. This one’s being brought to us by Universal Soldier: Regeneration director Courtney Solomon and newcomer Yaron Levy, if that means anything to you, but chances are it doesn’t, so let’s just focus on the explosions. What else do you have to do on Aug 30?
