The Weinstein Company have released the trailer for their international thriller No Escape. No, this isn’t the big screen adaptation of Dan Trachtenberg’s Portal: No Escape you’ve been hoping for… The story follows Owen Wilson‘s family who move to Southeast Asia to suddenly find themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising, and must escape as rebels attack the city.

The film is from Quarantine/Devil director John Erick Dowdle, and co-stars Pierce Brosnan and Lake Bell. Watch the No Escape trailer now embedded after the jump.
