Sir Ben Kingsley has never been shy about hamming it up in low-rent garbage (check out 2015’s “Self / Less” to watch him dye his skin orange and play a bald-headed version of Trump), but his latest performance takes things to another level entirely. The kind of low-rent action movie that only exists because everybody involved knew that nobody in the Western world would ever see it, Eran Creevy’s “Collide” stars Nicholas Hoult as a reformed car thief and Felicity Jones as the dying girlfriend whose kidney failure inspires him to do one last job.
But they’re both really boring. You know who’s not boring? Geran, the Turkish drug kingpin who lives in a gold-plated trailer with four prostitutes, suffers from short-term memory loss, and likes to spend his free time watching the 1985 John Travolta classic, “Perfect” (that’s the one where Travolta goes undercover in a Los Angeles fitness club). Kingsley, »

Watching Collide – the action thriller that debuted on roughly 2,000 screens this weekend – will, more likely than not, leave audiences wondering how indeed the film made it to the big screen. Its warmed-over love story, the one-last-job premise that fuels the plot and the parade of cliches it happily checks out of its cinematic bucket list don’t exactly scream “wide theatrical release.” So what then can we attribute the film’s major release to? Certainly, that answers boils down to the four acclaimed stars that frontline Eran Creevy’s third directorial effort.
Nicholas Hoult stars as Casey, a low-level criminal who gives up his life of delinquency when he falls in love with Juliette (Felicity Jones). However, in order for them to live happily ever after, Casey must resume working for drug dealer Geran (Ben Kingsley) on a task that puts both him and Juliette in the crosshairs of notorious »

“Get Out,” which opened with an impressive $1.8 million at 2,240 sites on Thursday night, will finish far ahead the closest contender, Warner Bros.’ third weekend of “The Lego Batman Movie” with about $18 million.
The second weekend of the historical saga “The Great Wall,” which carries a $150 million price tag, is dropping sharply from its $21 million opening over the four-day Presidents Day weekend, and will finish with about $8 million. Matt Damon stars in “Wall,” financed by Legendary and several Chinese partners. The film grossed over $170 million in China

Collide stars Nicholas Hoult as an American car thief and ex-drug dealer who gets involved in a cockamamie German cocaine heist in order to pay for a kidney transplant for his girlfriend (Felicity Jones) and ends up on the wrong side of a psycho trafficker (Anthony Hopkins) in a powder-blue suit. That’s more melodrama than the film needs, because Collide (titled Autobahn outside the States) has been put on this Earth for one purpose: solid, wholesome car-on-road, car-on-car action. Its English director, Eran Creevy (Welcome To The Punch), handles this with due competence—screeching tires, growling engines, grips tightening on steering wheels, and windshields shattering into glass confetti, cut from the usual surfeit of angles. The rest is unexceptional, a hodgepodge of corny voice-over and repetitive, anticlimactic plotting, with Hoult and Jones miscast as a couple of party-hardy American expats. But it isn’t unpleasant to look at.

Sophie Turner? Check. James McAvoy? Possibly, depending on whether the actor commits to X-Men: Supernova or New Mutants (or both!). That’s two major stars ostensibly locked in for the next X-Men movie, but what of Nicholas Hoult’s future in the mutant universe?
Hey U Guys caught up with British star in anticipation of Collide, a pulse-pounding action thriller in which he stars opposite Rogue One‘s Felicity Jones. It wasn’t long before the conversation veered toward Fox’s prized flagship, at which point Hoult admitted that, if the opportunity to reprise as Beast/Hank McCoy presented itself, he wouldn’t hesitate for a second.
“I think I’m involved. I’d be happy to go back – I love playing that character and I love everyone involved and I know there’s one in the works…”

Though there were somewhat mixed reviews, audiences seemed to love the Star Wars franchise’s first spin-off film, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story certainly helped move momentum going into next December’s release of Star Wars VIII. Coinciding with recent news about the Han Solo film, the release of the home versions of the Felicity Jones vehicle has now hit.
The Blu-Ray release will hit stores on April 4th, loaded with bonus features, though there will apparently be some “by outlet” differences in the list of bonuses. Also, as is becoming the norm, those looking for it on Digital HD get a bit of a head start, with the film hitting
As you might expect, the release will be loaded with extras, including some that are really going to make fans happy. Especially interesting are deeper looks at K-2So, Baze & Chirrut, and The Empire itself.

Universal-Blumhouse’s thriller about a young African-American man’s visit to his white girlfriend’s estate is coming into the market amid strong critical support with a rare 100% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes. “Get Out” expands to 2,773 North American theaters on Friday, where it’s expected to gross $18 million on its opening weekend and challenge the third weekend of “The Lego Batman Movie” for box office leadership.
The film, starring Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford, is the feature directorial for Peele, best known for his Comedy Central series “Key & Peele.” The Fandango online ticket service reported that “Get Out” was accounting for a leading 32% of its sales Friday.
“Get Out” should be highly profitable, given its modest $4.5 million price tag. Low-budget horror specialist »

This week in the Us action-thriller Collide is released in cinemas, and while the film doesn’t arrive until May in the UK, we were fortunate enough to sit down with stars Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones recently and, as you may have expected, we had to ask them about X-Men and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The future of the X-Men franchise has been the talk of Hollywood over recent weeks – with last summer’s X-Men: Apocalypse not quite as successful at the box office and the final High Jackman/Wolverine film, Logan, hitting cinemas on February 28th, attention has turned to what will be coming next.
Rumours of a new X-Men film, reportedly entitled Supernova, have surfaced and when we spoke to Sophie Turner (Jean Grey) at the BAFTAs earlier this month, she confirmed that she is shooting the new film later this year. »

Where would distinguished Academy Award-winning actors be in their dotage years if not for B-movies? Fortunately, there are plenty of them to go around — B-movies, I mean — guaranteeing lucrative paychecks and international location travel for the likes of Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley, who compete in Collide to see which one can better chew the scenery.
Not that they’re the stars of this low-rent thriller directed by Eran Creevy. That dubious distinction belongs to British thespians Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones, here both playing Americans. That Jones’ star has so recently risen with Rogue One: A Star Wars »

With its combination of horror and racial commentary, “Get Out” (Universal) is the best bet to lead the Top 10 this weekend. With a chance to be not only a hit but also a game-changer, it looks like both a breakout for first-time director Jordan Peele and yet another winner for producer Jason Blum.
The timing on Oscar weekend, particularly in the aftermath of #oscarssowhite, is fortuitous, and it moves into release with a whopping 100% on Rotten Tomatoes after 85 reviews. Horror maven Jason Blum is also an Oscar-nominated producer (“Whiplash”) as well as the force behind M. Might Shyamalan’s “Split,” the first film of 2017 to gross over $100 million domestic.
“Get Out,” as befits its origins from comic actor/writer Jordan Peele (who stays behind the camera), is a mix of humor and horror in its tale of an interracial couple meeting her wealthy liberal white parents for the first time. »

The new action thriller Collide boasts an A-list cast: Nicholas Hoult, Felicity Jones, Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley all star. In it, Hoult plays an American backpacking through Europe who hopes to help pay for his girlfriend's (Jones) medical emergency by running drugs for an eccentric smuggler (Kingsley). Unfortunately, a heist goes terribly wrong, and now his girlfriend's life -- or death -- may be in the hands of an evil mob boss (Hopkins). Can he beat the clock and save...

“Get Out” is getting some of the best reviews of this or any year. The thriller about a young African-American man’s visit to his white girlfriend’s estate has scored raves for mixing scares and social commentary, enjoying a rare 100% “fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes. Not to be outdone in the plaudits, Variety‘s Peter Debruge hailed the bloody riff on “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” as both “a must-see event” and “a no-holds-barred critique of black-white relations.”
The raves are ensuring that “Get Out” will get a warm reception at the multiplexes when it opens in 2,773 North American theaters on Friday, where it’s expected to pull in $18 million and challenge “The Lego Batman Movie” for box office supremacy. Universal is distributing the movie, which marks a departure of sorts for Jordan Peele, a writer and director best known for his Comedy Central series “Key & Peele.” It was produced by Blumhouse, »

Looks like yesterday’s rumor was on point after all; Disney and Lucasfilm have formally announced that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set to debut on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere March 24th, before opening up to 3D Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD, and On-Demand services on April 4th.
The announcement came hand-in-hand with a new trailer for the home video release (see above), which casts light on some of the many bonus features included. Conspicuous by their absence? Deleted scenes, particularly when you consider just how much footage was reportedly left on the cutting room floor during production on Gareth Edwards’ anthology flick. That’s not to say that the Mouse House won’t bring us Rogue One‘s deleted scenes further down the line, but at least with this initial release, it looks as though the special features will largely focus on character profiles, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and »
