Clive Owen, Dakota Fanning Star in New BMW Films: The Escape


BMW Films: The Escape is arriving October 23 and the first trailer for the short film has been released.

Starring Clive Owen and Dakota Fanning, the BMW short film is written and directed by Neill Blomkamp, who is known for the movie District 9. Marvel fans will also recognize Jon Bernthal in the trailer, who recently played The Punisher on Netflix’s Daredevil.

BMW Films was originally launched in 2001 with a series of eight branded short films called “The Hire,” which also featured Owen as “The Driver.” Now, the series makes a return with Blomkamp at the helm.

“I just think it was a brilliant idea originally,” said Owen in a behind-the-scenes video. “They’re serious pieces of work. They’re short films, but they’re serious filmmakers doing what they do best.”
