The Felicity Jones-Nicholas Hoult action auto movie Collide, which was extricated from Relativity Media during its bankruptcy crisis and rescued by Open Road Films, will now begin its journey as a theatrical wide release on February 3. The IM Global pic was originally scheduled to open August 19, but was then moved to an unset date.
Formerly known as Autobahn, Collide is from British helmer Eran Creevy and follows an American couple, Casey (Hoult) and Juliette (Jones). Juliette winds up in the hospital in need of a kidney transplant, which means Casey has to return to his criminal ways, becoming entangled with his former German crime boss Geran (Ben Kingsley) who turns the young man onto a heist. However, the plans blow up in Casey’s face as he finds himself pitted against Hagen (Anthony Hopkins), a rival mob lord, on the German highways.
On its new weekend, Collide will race against Paramount’s horror sequel Rings, Sony’s T2: Trainspotting, Paramount’s faith-title Same Kind Of Different As Me and an untitled horror movie from Blumhouse Tilt.
