added: Fri, Sep 28th '18

After a horrific and unexpected incident, a young, timid store clerk (Tony Award winner Alex Sharp) is forced to go on the run with the girl of his dreams (Analeigh Tipton) and his wheelchair-bound grandfather (Academy Award Winner Jeremy Irons). They are eventually pursued by a seasoned FBI agent (Maria Bello) and her rookie partner (Karan Soni).

Check out the trailer for "Better Start Running," a fugitive/road-trip dramedy directed by music video director-turned-filmmaker Brett Simon (Assassination of a High School President) from a script written by Chad Faust & Annie Burgstede.

Co-starring Edi Gathegi and Jane Seymour, "Better Start Running" is being released in select theaters and on VOD October 12th. Watch the trailer, above.

In BETTER START RUNNING, an unexpected series of events turns everyday store clerk Harley (Alex Sharp) into a wanted man... and even more unexpectedly, he finds himself on the run with the girl of his dreams (Analeigh Tipton). FBI Agent McFadden (Maria Bello) is determined to crush him and wants to teach her rookie partner (Karan Soni) how it's done. But while the agents pursue their culprit, our hero has loftier pursuits. He kidnaps his Vietnam vet grandfather (Jeremy Irons) to reunite him with the love of his life, picks up a try-hard beatnik hitchhiker (Edi Gathegi) with a secret of his own, and against all common sense follows a roadside attractions map with a mysterious history. As the agents get closer and closer with every stop, this eclectic band of misfits becomes an unlikely family, because sometimes ... a running start ... can be a better start.
