BMW magic revealed By ,

On October 23rd, BMW released The Escape as a tribute film to its own 2001-2002 series of unique short films titled The Hire and starring Clive Owen.

Owen returned for The Escape, accompanied by fellow actors Dakota Fanning, Jon Bernthal, and Vera Farmiga. The new movie was directed by South African director and Academy Award nominee Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium). It features the all-new 2017 BMW 5 Series.

“I firmly believe that 'Sheer Driving Pleasure' can be communicated effectively through emotional stories and that, by this, we can strengthen our BMW brand’s core values,” explained Hildegard Wortmann, Senior Vice President Brand BMW. “Clive Owen was keen from the start when he heard of our plans. We are delighted to have Clive on board again; with his style and coolness he is perfect for the role.”
