Summit Entertainment has released the first clip from director Mikael Hafstrom’s actioner Escape Plan, and if you’ve been itching to see Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone square off in a fight, today’s your lucky day. Stallone stars as Ray Breslin, the world’s foremost authority on structural security. Breslin is framed and incarcerated in a prison of his own master design, and must escape in order to find out who framed him and why. Schwarzenegger plays a fellow inmate and accomplice in the jailbreak. In this debut clip, we see the two start a jail fight that appears to be part of their plan. It showcases a healthy blend of comedy that harkens back to the action films of the 1980s and 90s, so hopefully that tone is prevalent throughout the entire film.
Hit the jump to watch the clip and to check out a few new images. The film also stars Jim Caviezel, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Amy Ryan. Escape Plan opens September 27th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Escape Plan:
Escape Plan follows Ray Breslin (Stallone) who is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. He’s analyzed every high security prison and has gained a vast array of survival skills. But all Ray’s ingenuity and knowledge are about to be put to work in the most challenging test he’s ever faced: escaping from the master prison of his own design.
Schwarzenegger, in the role of Church, plays a complex inmate with multiple shades of grey. He’s the guy who fights to keep the prisoners from losing their humanity in their darkest hour as they struggle together to stay alive.
