I’ll say this for the trailer for A Perfect Getaway: It’s well edited. And it comes from the writer/director of Pitch Black, David Twohy (who also wrote The Fugitive, G.I. Jane, and Waterworld, among many other films. More importantly, it’ll offer our first extended look at Chris Hemsworth, the Australian actor who has already been tapped as Thor and as the lead in the Red Dawn remake. And also: Timothy Olyphant as the bad guy, which he does very well (though, usually with facial hair).

Steve Zahn and Milla Jovovich also star.

Fun Fact: There was also a movie in 1998 called The Perfect Getaway. It was written by Tim Minnear, who many of you know as one of the writers behind “Firefly,” “Dollhouse” and “Angel.” And it starred Adrian Pasdar from “Heroes.” Anyone ever seen it? And is it any good.

Anyway: the trailer:
