It’s not clear when we’ll get to see “Collide” —formerly known as “Autobahn“— as it’s one of those movies caught up in Relativity‘s bankruptcy woes, but one thing is clear: this hardly looks like a movie that would’ve been a financial boon. The first teaser for the movie is here, so you better buckle up.
Eran Creevy (“Welcome To The Punch“) directs this movie about a young man on the run from a mob boss, while….does it matter? We’ve seen the variation on this story a million times before. Anthony Hopkins shows up take his Hannibal Lecter-esque persona for yet another spin, Ben Kingsley is similarly slumming, and the immensely talented Felicity Jones should’ve chosen better. And leading it all the way is Nicholas Hoult.
Here’s the official synopsis: 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 (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.
“Collide” will open in the U.S. via Open Road on April 1 2016.
