Trailers for Nicholas Hoult-Led ‘Collide’ & ‘Kill Your Friends’

Action Thriller

The Mad Max: Fury Road and X-Men star Nicholas Hoult has been branching out as of late with films like the dark comedy Kill Your Friends and a movie that few of us knew about, the action thriller Collide (aka Autobahn).

Never understood how Nick Hoult became famous, but he is. The guy is currently in talks to play the flamboyant and gay Beatles manager Brian Epstein opposite Jack O’Connell as Lennon in the upcoming biopic A Life in the Day. Maybe I’m wrong, but Hoult reminds me of Garrett Hedlund, who has been given chance after chance and still is not happening.

Oh, never mind. We learnt that Collide is missing from its slate due to Relativity’s bankruptcy, but it will be released Stateside later this year and we now have the first trailer. Hoult is joined by Felicity Jones, Ben Kingsley, and Anthony Hopkins.

Watch the first teaser for Eran Creevy‘s heist flick Collide. The song is Aeterna by Two Steps from Hell.

Update: Trailer removed at the request of the producers.

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.

And here’s the new trailer for Hoult-led murder-comedy Kill Your Friends, co-starring Rosanna Arquette, James Corden, Craig Roberts, and the new Transporter Ed Skrein. The movie also has no official US release date set yet, but it opens in the U.K. on November 6.

Looks like the Brits have finally realized that anyone involved with Britpop deserves a grisly death.

British Dark Comedy

Check out the official synopsis of the film based on the novel by John Niven and directed by British television vet Owen Harris:

London, 1997; the British Music Industry is on a winning streak. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, The Verve rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing.

27-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where ‘no one knows anything’ and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public. Fuelled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox lives the dream, as he searches for his next hit record.

But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of “killer tunes” to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.
