- mlynch-10 posted information on IMDb about the special screening of Rupert Wyatt’s film The Escapist (featuring Brian Cox, Joseph Fiennes, and Damian Lewis) which he attended in New York City on August 9th:
This is destined to become a cult classic…It was riveting! Not your typical escape film…The title is fitting as it implies more than just escaping from prison. Beautiful ending. I asked when it would be released and was told “not this year”.
