If you were awake in the early 2000’s, you might recall a series of films released online by BMW Films called The Hire, featuring big-name actor Clive Owen who played The Driver. Owen was accompanied by other top Hollywood actors and the best action directors ensured impressive viewing. BMW created 8 short films and each featured a specific BMW model that The Driver would use in his escapades and the series racked up over 100 million views in four years.

BMW Films has now released its latest short film, The Escape and Owen returns as The Driver, behind the wheel of the new BMW 5 Series. The Escape, starring Clive Owen, Dakota Fanning, Jon Bernthal and Vera Farmiga is full of action and the film is directed by South Africa’s own Neill Blomkamp, who also directed District 9 (2009), Elysium (2013) and Chappie (2015).
