Watch: Owen Wilson Gives James Bond a Run for His Money in ‘No Escape’ Trailer

Owen Wilson is back in the action game.

The actor, better known for his comedies than his earlier roles in “Behind Enemy Lines” and “The Haunting,” is returning to his old stomping grounds with the action thriller “No Escape.”

The first trailer for the film, released by the Weinstein Company, finds Wilson toting shotguns as comfortably as a former 007, co-star Pierce Brosnan. Wilson plays an American businessman who moves his family to Southeast Asia just as a violent political uprising erupts. Lake Bell plays his wife, while Brosnan is a government agent who tries to help the family run for their lives.

“Quarantine” helmer John Erick Dowdle directed and co-wrote the film with his brother Drew Dowdle. “No Escape” hits theaters on September 2.
