In Collide, Casey (Nicholas Hoult) must revisit his dark past to save the one he loves. That set up is very familiar, but Eran Creevy is a director capable of transcending tropes. Creevy’s sophomore effort as a filmmaker, Welcome to the Punch, is a story of hero and foe uniting, a potentially trite set up that makes for a refreshingly streamlined film with a reliance on practical action. His follow-up, Collide, which he co-wrote with F. Scott Frazier (xXx: The Return of Xander Cage), looks like another lean action-thriller from the director.
Below, watch the Collide trailer.

The beautiful and frightening 1978 adaptation of Watership Down holds up remarkably well, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for another interpretation of Richard Adams‘ novel. This won’t be the first time Adams’ story has been retold for television, but it’s just been announced BBC and Netflix are teaming up to make a Watership Down animated miniseries. The series, which is set to premiere in 2017, will feature voice work from Ben Kingsley, James McAvoy, John Boyega, Nicholas Hoult, and more.

A lot of filmmakers have a certain theme they return to time and time again, and for director Drake Doremus it seems to be love in all of its messiness and complications. Like Crazy dealt with the long-distance relationship between an American and a Brit, and Breathe In with the love affair between a married man and a much younger woman. His latest film, Equals, pushes him into the sci-fi realm for the first time… but it’s still a love story at heart, chronicling a romance that unfolds under the most inhospitable of circumstances.
Nia (Kristen Stewart) and Silas (Nicholas Hoult) live in one of those Apple Store dystopias that seem so popular at the cinema these days. All human emotion, including sexual desire, has been eradicated. But Silas and Nia begin to fall for each other when they catch a disease that sparks feeling in its victims, and strike up a dangerously forbidden romance. Watch the Equals trailer after the jump.

Kristen Stewart knows a thing or two about forbidden love. She is, after all, still best known for starring in a series of films about a girl and her vampire boyfriend. And Nicholas Hoult‘s done the whole dystopia thing — he’s coming out of the toxic wasteland of Mad Max: Fury Road. Now the two of them are coming together for Equals, Drake Doremus‘ sci-fi love story about two lonely souls who find love in a hopeless place.
Said place is a sterile future where all emotion has been outlawed and eradicated. Or at least that’s what the powers that be are striving for. The truth is that there’s a weird disease going around referred to as “Switched On Syndrome,” which sparks feeling in its victims. Hoult and Stewart play two of the afflicted, who strike up a forbidden passion. Distributor A24 has just dropped the first Equals teaser trailer, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »

Nicholas Hoult has spent the past few years playing zombies and furry blue superheroes and sympathetic post-apocalyptic henchmen, so it’s only natural that he’d eventually end up in a movie that doesn’t require him to be slathered in prosthetics. That movie is Kill Your Friends, a darkly comedic thriller based on the novel by John Niven. A new trailer for the film has arrived and it presents a side of Hoult we haven’t been getting recently. Namely, the obsessive, unhinged, murder-y side.
Watch the new Kill Your Friends trailer after the jump.
