BMW Is Reviving Its BMW Films Series, Clearly There Is A God

You may not believe this, but it’s been 15 years since BMW first released its lovely series of “The Hire” films starring Clive Owen. They’re still so watchable and entertaining today that, well, only the late-model BMWs are a tip-off that the short films aren’t current…until The Escape premiers, that is.

Clive Owen is back, alongside Director Neill Blomkamp, and this time, the supporting cast will include Vera Farmiga, Jon Bernthal, and Dakota Fanning—assisted by some of the original production staff and writers.

For The Escape, not much is known about its plot or specifically which BMW Clive Owen will use in his role portraying The Driver—we’ve embedded the originals below in case you need to take the afternoon off sick refresh your memory, it’s been 15 years, after all.

The Escape will premiere on Sunday, October 23, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. EST at
