Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Ben Kingsley and Anthony Hopkins star in Collide, an action-thriller finally getting a release after Relativity’s bankruptcy woes left the feature (filmed in 2014) in limbo.
Open Road picked it up, and our first official U.S. trailer is finally here, giving us an energetic look at what could very well be a fun, albeit mindless, fast-paced actioner.
Hoult plays Casey Stein, a guy who heads back to his bad-ass driver ways when his gal (Jones) needs the money for a kidney transplant. He heads on a heist, and unsurprisingly, it goes very wrong. Cue scenery chewing from Hopkins and Kingsley, the latter of which is playing a Turkish gangster, and vehicular mayhem. This doesn’t look amazing, but we are hoping for a good time. Fingers crossed.
Collide, directed and co-written by Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch), will open in the U.S. on August 19.
Synopsis for Collide:
After a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen (Anthony Hopkins). Now Casey has precious cargo that belongs to Hagen, who will stop at nothing to retrieve it. Left with no choice, Casey calls his former employer and drug smuggler Geran (Ben Kingsley) to protect his long-time girlfriend Juliette before Hagen gets his hands on her. Casey sets out on an adrenaline-fueled car chase on the German highways to save the love of his life before it’s too late.
