[Video] BMW Films: The Escape is here image

The action packed short series that arguably sparked the video viral marketing era is back and Clive Owen – seasoned like fine wine – is back in the titular character, as he gets the latest 5 Series as his trusty sidekick.

The latest action-packed installment in BMW Film’s The Hire series, The Escape, went live on October 23 at 6:00 pm EST and we can see how Clive Owen returning as the unnamed The Driver has managed to get a hold of the new BMW 5 Series ahead of everyone else. He needs to take along for the ride a young celebrity played by Dakota Fanning (War of The Worlds), who is being pursued by dark forces, led by Jon Bernthal (The Punisher, The Walking Dead). There are other A listers here – such as Vera Farmiga (Up in The Air) and Neill Blomkamp (District 9) who fulfills the director duties.

As we all know too well, The Driver has the habit of not getting things done in orderly fashioned way because all his jobs tend to go south. This situation is the same, as matters become of life and death. “When we commissioned The Escape, our only direction was that the story remain of utmost importance – and that it should live up to the standards set by The Hire. Neill, Clive, and the entire cast did a tremendous job and we are confident that The Escape not only meets that standard, but sets a new one,” added Brand BMW head Hildegard Wortmann.
