Nicholas Hoult & Felicity Jones Are On The Run In 'Collide' Trailer

By Matt O.

A new trailer has arrived for director Eran Creevy's (Welcome to the Punch) long delayed action-thriller starring Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins, and Ben Kingsley. The film was originally titled Autobahn, but has now been changed to the non-interesting title of Collide. The film was originally filmed in early 2014 and was supposed to be released later that year but was delayed because of the studio Relativity's bankruptcy troubles, but the film will finally hit theaters this August.

The trailer looks pretty good, but very cliche, although the cast is impressive which is interesting. Also of note, is everything Nicholas Hoult has been in has been great in my opinion, Mad Max: Fury Road, The X-Men films, Warm Bodies. Plus one of my favorite little films of the past few years, the criminally under seen film titled the Young Ones starring Hoult, Michael Shannon, Elle Fanning, and Kodi Smit-McPhee. So I'm very interested in checking out another Nicholas Hoult vehicle.

Check out the first trailer and poster for Collide, via Yahoo! Movies, than sound off in the comments section down below with your thoughts on the fun looking thriller.

Here's the official 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."

Collide is set to hit theaters on August 19th.
