Nicholas Hoult & Felicity Jones in Trailer for Action Thriller 'Collide'
"Is it dangerous?" "What kind of question is that?!" Open Road Films has unveiled the first trailer for the action thriller Collide, starring Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones. This isn't the same as that sci-fi film Collider, instead it's a rather generic-looking action movie with a stellar cast. Besides Hoult & Jones, the cast includes Anthony Hopkins (as a mob boss) and Ben Kingsley (looking wacko), plus Nadia Hilker and Clemens Schick. The story is about an American backpacker caught up in a drug smuggling ring while trying to pull off a heist, taking him "on the run from his employers across Munich's high-speed Autobahn." If that doesn't interest you, I'm not sure what else will. This does look like it may be entertaining. Fire it up.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Eran Creevy's Collide, originally from Yahoo:
After a heist goes terribly wrong, Casey Stein (Hoult) finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen (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 (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. Collide is both written and directed by English filmmaker Eran Creevy, of the films Welcome to the Punch and Shifty previously. The screenplay is also credited to F. Scott Frazier in addition to Creevy. Open Road Films will release Collide in select theaters starting on August 19th later this summer. Anyone interested?
