Collide(formerly known as Autobahn) is finally poised to see the light of day on February 24th, and it has a new trailer to prove it. Check it out…
The release of the action film starring Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: First Class, Mad Max: Fury Road) and Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) got derailed in the Relativity Media bankruptcy crisis, but is back on track, to be released by Open Road. The first trailer, released by Yahoo!Movies, looks pretty promising, too. Check it out:
Collidefollows one former criminal in his efforts to steal the money his girlfriend needs for her kidney transplant. As if those stakes weren’t already high enough, when the heist goes wrong, Hoult’s character Casey Stein “finds himself on the run from a ruthless gang headed by mob boss Hagen.” As you may have noticed, Hagen is played by Anthony Hopkins, while Ben Kinglsey gets his acting on as Geran, a drug smuggler and one of Stein’s former bosses. Here’s the full synopsis:
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.
Collidehas the kind of premise we’ve seen before, but with an all-star cast and some pretty cool-looking action set pieces. Director Eran Creevy worked previously with Matthew Vaughn on Layer Cake, which certainly bodes well for the panache of this film. We’ll have to wait and see if Collide‘s whole adds up to more than the sum of its already impressive parts.
