The Coup, the action thriller starring Owen Wilson, Lake Bell and Pierce Brosnan, is getting a title switch and a date change.

The movie is now called No Escape, and its release date has been moved from March 6 to Sept. 2, 2015.

One reason for the title change, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter, is that the name tested poorly with audiences, who didn't know what the heck a "coup" was.

John Erick Dowdle directed the movie and co-wrote it with his brother, Drew Dowdle.

Drew Dowdle, Michel Litvak and David Lancaster are the producers.

The story centers on an American businessman (Wilson) as he and his family settle into their new home in Southeast Asia. Suddenly finding themselves in the middle of a violent political uprising (i.e., a coup), they must frantically look for a safe escape as rebels mercilessly attack the city.
