Hemsworth, Zahn & Jovovich Want A Perfect Getaway

31 May 2009 7:37 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

I always look forward to the end of the summer movie season. You can be sure to find at least one or two decent movies to watch in August that will entertain without suffering from all the hype leading up to their release. GI Joe, while I’m really excited to watch it, opens in August and if Screen Rant chatter is any indication, will most likely suffer from the hype and be judged very harshly.

 

If you want to find a movie worth watching you sometimes have to go off the beaten path; in this case, Hawaii. I think David Twohy’s A Perfect Getaway, which he wrote and directed, may be the sleeper hit of the summer and, if the film is as entertaining as the trailer, should be a great way to end the big movie season as well.

A Perfect Getaway appears to have everything I »

New Trailer For ‘A Perfect Getaway’ Looks Surprisingly Cool

28 May 2009 10:24 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Solid and twisty thrillers are in short supply these days.  More often than not current "suspense" films will rely on big names or hefty promotion to get asses in seats only to discover the actual movie is unoriginal, predictable, and bland.  A new trailer for A Perfect Getaway has just premiered online, and while it's too early to tell for sure, it looks like writer/director David Twohy may have a winner.  Check out the trailer. Looks pretty solid doesn't it?  Twohy has a long history of entertaining films he's written and/or directed including The Fugitive, Pitch Black, Below, Critters 2, The Arrival, and many more.  The cast is also pretty reliable... Steve Zahn, Timothy Olyphant, and Milla Jovovich are all personable and exciting actors.  Also starring is Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, in his first film role since Star Trek.  The IMDb synopsis is below: Cliff and Cydney (Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich) are an adventurous »

First trailer for David Twohy's tropical thriller A Perfect Getaway

27 May 2009 3:52 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

From David Twohy, creator of Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick and director of that bad alien invasion flick form the 90s, The Arrival, comes a new thriller called A Perfect Getaway. Yes we've seen this kind of story played out many many times before, but this time, it looks like Twohy's turned it on it's head. If the trailer is any indication of what's going on in the final film, this may be a case where the only "bad guy" is paranoia. Three couples suspect the other couples of being murderers; that kind of thing. Plus, I really like this cast and have always been a bit of a fan of Pitch Black so I'm gonna give this one a pass.

Two pairs of newlywed couples on a vacation to Hawaii discover that psychopaths are stalking and murdering tourists on the islands. Paradise becomes hell on earth as »
