A new trailer has arrived for the long-delayed action-thriller Collide. Previously titled Autobahn, the film stars Nicholas Hoult as an American tourist who winds up in trouble after a heist—intended to pull in the money needed to give his girlfriend (Felicity Jones) a kidney transplant—goes wrong. He’s now in a race against time to save her from a gang of thugs, led by a scenery-chewing Anthony Hopkins.
The movie was shot back in 2014 and got tied up in Relativity’s bankruptcy troubles, but now the film is finally headed to theaters later this year. Eran Creevy (Welcome to the Punch) directs from a script by F. Scott Frazier (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage), and it certainly looks to be an adrenaline-fueled thriller filled out by a somewhat surprisingly impressive ensemble—Ben Kingsley in particular looks like he’s having a blast. Will it be good? It’s hard to tell from this cliche-filled trailer, but we’ll find out soon enough.
Check out the trailer and poster below, via Yahoo! Movies. Collide opens in theaters on August 19th.
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.
