Are you sick of superhero movies and the parade of bad remakes from Hollywood? Well, you’re in luck, because BMW Films are back and better than ever before.
That’s hard to process, because back in the day BMW Films were incredible. At a time when online videos weren’t really a thing, BMW was showing everyone how consumers love to be entertained without some ulterior motive.
Once again, the short rises to a level regular commercials can’t even begin to achieve. Just check out the video below and you’ll become a believer.
Before you do that, know Clive Owen has returned, which is a key ingredient for a good BMW Film production. Neill Blomkamp, who directed District 9, was at the helm. Dakota Fanning, Vera Farmiga and Jon Bernthal are also in the short, which is called “The Escape.” If you didn’t catch Bernthal in Netflix’s Daredevil season two, he’s great in these sorts of rogue gunmen roles.
Of course, the real star is the 2017 BMW 5 Series heavily featured throughout. As you can expect, Clive Owen’s character throws the G30 around like a pro while he takes on a dangerous mission. It’s the kind of unique thing car nuts and normal people can appreciate together.
