EXCLUSIVE: It’s official. Eran Creevy’s Collide is hitting the Open Road. IM Global and Open Road Films today confirmed what had been expected for some time now, with the distributor acquiring the U.S. rights to the Nicholas Hoult-starrer. Open Road chief exec Tom Ortenberg and IM Global founder and chief Stuart Ford announced the film will open in America on April 1 next year.
The film also stars Felicity Jones (The Theory O Everything), Anthony Hopkins and Ben Kingsley. It was financed by IM Global and China’s DMG Entertainment, with additional financing by Sycamore Pictures. Joel Silver produced via his Silver Pictures banner, along with Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken via 42, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones via Automatik, and Action Concept. The feature shot entirely in Germany with support from DFFF, the German Federal Film Fund, and NRW, the North Rhine-Westphalia funding entity.
In the film, previously known as Autobahn, a young American couple Casey (Hoult) and Juliette (Jones) are plunged into an adrenaline-pumping game of cat and mouse across Germany when they find themselves caught between two ruthless feuding criminals (Hopkins and Kingsley).
The film had originally been set for release by Relativity. Those plans were waylaid following that company’s bankruptcy, allowing IM Global to take it back and do the deal with Open Road instead.
IM Global has several features in the pipelines including Billy Ray’s The Secret In Their Eyes starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Nicole Kidman and Julia Roberts, which STX releases November 20; Civil War drama The Free State of Jones, again with STX and starring Matthew McConaughey; and Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge, with Cross Creek, starring Andrew Garfield, Vince Vaughn and Sam Worthington. Lionsgate/Summit is releasing that domestically.
New high quality scans from the November issue of magazines of Felicity are now available in the photo gallery – including 4 from SFX and 2 from Total Film. All of them deals with the upcoming “Star Wars: Rogue One”. Check it out !
Felicity has recently been on the set of her next big project ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’. In one of those pictures, you can see her with actors Donnie Yen, Jonathan Aris, Diego Luna in costume. Find medium photos of the filming as well as scans from the British magazine Sun, published on September 15.
As a kid, the excitement of seeing the words ‘James Bond will return’ was infectious, confirming that the adventures of Britain’s greatest spy would continue.
Back to the Future 2 also did it in 1989 and the Marvel movie universe has done the same. But Star Wars has never done it. Until now.
US movie news site Schmoes Know have claimed that the end credits of The Force Awakens (released on December 17th) will include not only a small clip but also a teaser.
This has never happened before, largely due to the previous films having been made three years apart, compared with the 12-month gap we’ll have going forward. There will be just five months between Rogue One (released 16th December 2016) and Episode VIII (coming 26th May 2017).
Schmoes Know have heard that both a clip and a teaser for Rogue One will be added after the credits of The Force Awakens.

As we know, Felicity was nominated in the category ‘Choice Movie Actress: Drama’ for her roles in ‘True Story’ and ‘The Theory of Everything’ but Chloe Grace Moretz won for her role Mia Hall in ‘If I Stay’.
Moreover, ‘The Theory of Everything’ was also nominated in the category ‘Choice Movie: Drama’ but ‘If I Stay’ won. Actually, Felicity couldn’t attend the ceremony because we think she’s currently filming one of her projects.

There was quite a bit of talk during Disney’s live-action presentation at the D23 Expo today about the importance of heroines. Well, if this first image of the cast of the upcoming Star Wars standalone film Rogue One is any indication, Felicity Jones’ (as yet unnamed) character might soon rise as the most badass member of those ranks.
The photo, the first released from the upcoming film, also confirms cast members Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk, and Riz Ahmed. Still no word on what roles those actors will be playing, but the tale of Rogue One is one that takes place before Star Wars: Episode IV—A New Hope and follows a group of, yes, rougues who band together to steal the plans for the Death Star.
“It goes into new territory, exploring the galactic struggle from a ground-war perspective while maintaining that essential Star Wars feel that fans have come to know,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement.
Rogue One is being directed by Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards, who greeted D23 fans via a video message from the film’s set. The movie hits theaters Dec. 16, 2016.
