Summit Entertainment has released the first trailer for director Mikael Hafstrom action thriller Escape Plan. The film centers around a distinguished prison architect (Sylvester Stallone) who finds himself incarcerated in a prison he designed known as ‘The Tomb’, his skills are put to the test as he tried to escape (with the help of fellow in-mate Arnold Schwarzenegger) and track down who framed him.
Despite Sly and Arnold’s limited success at the box-office lately (The Last Stand – 12 million and Bullet to the Head – 9 million) i’m glad this movie is still getting a theatrical release. The trailer looks fun, the stars and the plot feel dated but these guys are generally fun to see onscreen. With tempered expectations this could be a fun time at the theater.
The film includes an impressive amount of talent in the supporting cast with Jim Caviezel, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Vinnie Jones, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Amy Ryan.
