Lionsgate Entertainment

Release Date: October 18, 2013

Directed by Mikael Håfström (The Rite), Escape Plan stars Sylvester Stallone as Ray Breslin, co-owner of Breslin-Clark, a security firm that specializes in testing the reliability of maximum security prisons.

Breslin spends his life breaking in and out of prisons. He studies their designs and the guards’ habits to find and exploit weaknesses in the system.

After his most recent breakout, Breslin and his business partner Lester Clark (Vincent D’Onofrio) are approached by CIA agent Jessica Miller (Caitriona Balfe) to infiltrate a top-secret prison to determine if it’s escape-proof.

Under the guise of a terrorist named “Portos,” Breslin is locked up in the Tomb – a futuristic prison with glass cells and creepy guards straight out of THX-1138. It doesn’t take long for Breslin to realize he’s been double-crossed. Someone wants the former escape artist to disappear for good, buried in the Tomb with the rest of the world’s most dangerous men.

After a few days of casing the joint, Breslin meets inmate Emil Rottmayer (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and together they hatch a scheme to escape the hush-hush techno-prison and the machiavellian Warden Hobbs (Jim Caviezel).
