A young couple honeymoons in Hawaii and, because they’re fun-loving adventurous types, they decide to skip the room service and backpack instead to a completely isolated beach. Stop me when you’ve heard this one before. This brief synopsis is the opening to the new thriller from Rogue Pictures called “A Perfect Getaway” and in case you can’t see the rest of the synopsis coming – bad stuff is about to go down on that beach.
“A Perfect Getaway” stars Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich as the aforementioned fun-lovers and Timothy Olyphant and Kiele Sanchez as the mysterious “other couple” in this well-worn suspense-thriller scenario. Even if I’m relatively sure where this “Getaway” is headed, the trailer makes it look like an enjoyable trip to take. It’s always fun to watch Jovovich kick and scream and nobody does cool and menacing as well as Timothy Olyphant. Whether audiences will buy Steve Zahn as a dramatic hero or not is the film’s only question mark.
“A Perfect Getaway” opens on August 15th. Check out trailer and some new images from the movie after the jump.
