Hollywood scriptwriters would make terrible travel agents.
Paris? Brimming with sex traffickers waiting to pounce on any young females as soon as they leave the airport. Eastern Europe? Swarming with murderous ex-KGB officers. And now it looks as if Southeast Asia’s a no-go spot too.
This is the first trailer for The Weinstein’s No Escape, starring Owen Wilson as a family man who ups sticks to the region and suddenly finds himself in the nucleus of a bloody political uprising. From there the family must frantically attempt to escape the clutches of a bloody mob, who also have a tank – a tank!
All of which might go some way to explaining why the title sounds like a pay-per-view WWE event. Frankly, it looks action-packed, while the supporting cast even features one Pierce Brosnan, playing the ex-pat who introduces Wilson’s businessman to the good life before all hell breaks loose.
Because if you want anyone to help you in foreign spot of bother, it’s James Bond.
