When I first saw the title of this film, it never came up on my radar so I did not pay much attention to it, but then I received a press release saying watch Nicholas Hoult... I never finished the sentence as I pounced on the link to the trailer. And to be honest, wow, what a cast, as far as I am concerned.
Collide opens in Theaters on February 24
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.
This is yet one more role demonstrating the depth of Hoult's ability to portray a character to the camera for his fans. He's previously portrayed Beast in the X-Men franchise, he was the nutty young kid in the Mad Max Fury Road film, and played R in the funny zombie love story of Warm Bodies. He currently has three films in post-production: Watership Down (Fiver), The Current War (as Nikola Tesla) and Sand Castle.
Then let's not even forget the wonderful talents of Anthony Hopkins, as of all things, a mob boss. Oh, that sounds so insidiously sweet!
Felicity Jones (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Theory of Everything) also stars.
Check out the trailer for Collide below.
