Both Felicity Jones and Nicholas Hoult are featured in two of this year's highly-anticipated movies, with Jones starring in December's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story while Hoult reprises his role as Beast in this weekend's X-Men: Days of Future Past. Fans will be able to see them both on the big screen together later this summer in the new thriller Collide. As we get closer and closer to the August 19 release, Open Road Films has debuted the first trailer and poster, which asks "How far would you go for the one you love?"
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 (Felicity Jones) 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.
The supporting cast includes Nadia Hiker, Clemens Schick, Chico Kenzari, Christian Rubeck, Lindsey Elizabeth, Michael Epp and Aleksander Jovanovic. This intense thriller will have plenty of competition in its August 19 release date. Collide will be going up against Paramount's epic remake of Ben-Hur, Warner Bros.' true story adaptation War Dogs, Focus Features' animated adventure Kubo and the Two Strings and STX Entertainment's sci-fi adventure The Space Between Us. We'll have to wait and see how this thriller fares in such a crowded weekend at the box office.
Eran Creevey directs from a script he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier (The Numbers Station). British filmmaker Eran Creevey made his directorial debut in 2008 with Shifty, which starred Felicity Jones' Rogue One co-star Riz Ahmed. He followed that up with the 2013 thriller Welcome to the Punch, starring James McAvoy and Mark Strong. The filmmaker got his start as a production assistant on Layer Cake, before directing a number of music videos ahead of his directorial debut Shifty.
Nicholas Hoult is currently filming Rebel in the Rye, where he is portraying reclusive author J.D. Salinger. And you can see him on the big screen this weekend in X-Men: Apocalypse. Before Rogue One hits theaters this December, Felicity Jones will also star in A Monster Calls and Inferno this fall before putting her iconic stamp on Star Wars tis holiday season. Take a look at the first trailer and poster for Collide below, and stay tuned for more on this summer thriller.
