Clive Owen is back behind the wheel in BMW Films ‘The Escape’

I know, I know, but it's not bad as a promo film.....

Clive Owen is back behind the wheel of a BMW in The Escape, the latest instalment in the BMW Films series.

Owen reprised his role as anonymous wheelman “The Driver” from the last series of BMW Films, The Hire, released in 2001 and 2002. The plot of this latest film involves human cloning and a heavily-armed team of bad guys led by Jon Bernthal, best known for playing The Punisher on Marvel’s Netflix series Daredevil. The film also stars Dakota Fanning (War of the Worlds) and Vera Farmiga (The Departed), and was directed by Neil Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium, Chappie).

For this outing, Owen’s character took the wheel of the 2017 BMW 5 Series, the recently revealed seventh-generation version of BMW’s midsize luxury sedan. The latest 5 Series borrows styling and technology from the larger 7 Series, and is also lighter than the outgoing model thanks to extensive use of materials like high-strength steel, aluminum, and magnesium. The car certainly gets a workout in The Escape, as Owen and Fanning try to outrun everything from a pair of Hummers to a helicopter.

well, he does look like the average BMW saloon driver in a rush

Didn't Matt Damon do for him in the original of the Bourne franchise? Probably for not indicating his turns and lane-changes.

So down south, don't ya know, it's Audi Drivers who don't indicate - except to flash both headlights when you're in front of them. The BMW drivers have all been taught!!
