Synopsis: Kevin Bacon (The Following, HBO's Taking Chance, Mystic River) stars in director Jon Watts' delightful throwback thriller Cop Car. Two good-natured but rebellious young boys (James Freedson-Jackson and Hays Wellford) have claimed their independence and, unbeknownst to their families, ran away from home. Equipped with some beef jerky, they stroll through golden fields making their way towards a secluded glade where they find an abandoned cop car. Curious and excited, they explore the car, find the keys and take the car for a joyride. Their bad decision unleashes the ire of the car's owner, a county sheriff (Kevin Bacon), who has left something of great value in the car and is desperate to get it back. A fast-paced game of cat-and-mouse ensues and the boys quickly discover that the fun is over and they are in way over their heads.
Jon Watts' Cop Car is an intense thriller packed with unexpected turns and escalating stakes- strap on your seatbelts and prepare for the best joyride ever!
