Action star isn’t what usually comes to mind when we hear Owen Wilson’s name but let’s not forget the lovable comedian's earlier roles include Behind Enemy Lines and Armageddon. The intense and explosive trailer for Wilson's new film, No Escape, may change the way we perceive him from here on out.
In No Escape, Wilson plays an American businessman who moves his family to Southeast Asia (unnamed country) to start a new life, only to find themselves in the throes of a violent political uprising. What begins as a family drama quickly turns into a fight for survival and a battle to get to the safety of the American embassy as rebels mercilessly attack the city. Lake Bell plays Wilson’s wife while Pierce Brosnan stars as a government agent trying to help Wilson and his family. The film is directed and written by John Erick Dowdle and his brother Drew Dowdle.
No Escape hits theaters on September 2.
