I have to be completely honest, I had little to no interest in the David Twohy beach thriller A Perfect Getaway. Nothing against the cast, nothing against the director, but I just wasn’t interested. The film stars Steve Zahn, Milla Jovovich, Timothy Olyphant, Marley Shelton, and Chris Hemsworth aka Thor. The first trailer for the film has popped up online and it looks nothing like how I would expect. It actually has an eerie Deliverance vibe to it. The whole idea of being in a deserted, woodsy area surrounded by strangers who have serious ulterior motives is so uncomfortable to watch. At some point I was expecting Burt Reynolds to pop up from behind a tree with a bow and arrow!
Check out the trailer after the jump.
It starts off kind of dopey, but it builds up to some disturbing action. Is it just me or does Hemsworth and Olyphant just immediately look like their up to no good? I’m just saying, if I were Milla or Steve I wouldn’t have picked them up, but this is a movie and we’re going for entertainment. Logical thinking doesn’t apply here.
A Perfect Getaway hits theaters later this summer on August 14.
