In the high-speed car-chase thriller Collide, Nicholas Hoult plays a guy who goes to extreme lengths to pay for emergency medical treatment for his girlfriend, played by Felicity Jones. "I would describe it as thrilling and exciting," Hoult says. "It's an action-packed rush!"

Felicity Jones and Nicholas Hoult in Collide

The 27-year-old has been acting since he was a young boy, and enjoys drawing on his experiences. "I've managed to work with a lot of people I look up to," he says. "I remember while shooting the last X-Men watching James McAvoy do a couple of scenes, I was thinking 'Damn, this guy is so good,' and then being like, 'Oh sh*t! Nick, don't forget that you're in it too!'"

Collide Trailer


Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) never had intentions of a life of crime, but during a backpacking vacation in Europe he gets drawn into a drug-smuggling ring in a bid to find the money to pay for his girlfriend Juliette Marne's (Felicity Jones) serious medical emergency. His role mainly involves driving, but the heist fails. Naturally he wants out of this life as soon as possible. When the love of his life is kidnapped, however, he is forced to return to his criminal past to get her back and enlists the help of his old boss Geran (Ben Kingsley). He'll do everything he can for Geran if it means taking out Hagen Kahl (Anthony Hopkins) - the merciless druglord who took Juliette - and getting his girlfriend back, even if that does mean risking his life in yet another high-speed Autobahn pursuit in Cologne. Sometimes it seems that it's only love keeping him alive.

A Monster Calls Review

Extraordinary

A difficult movie to market, this isn't actually the BFG-style fantasy adventure it looks like. Instead, it's a darkly emotional journey taken by a young boy who is grappling with huge issues he doesn't quite understand. In other words, it's a film for adults that centres on a child. It's also one of the most moving films in recent memory, with a powerful cast and a remarkably resonant sense of authenticity even in its big effects-based sequences.

In northern England, 12-year-old Conor (newcomer Lewis MacDougall) is running his home while his mother (Felicity Jones) undergoes treatment for cancer. He's rather annoyed that his grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) keeps butting in to take over, and also that his father (Toby Kebbell) lives in America and can only drop in for short visits. Overwhelmed by all of this, Conor imagines the gigantic yew tree in a nearby churchyard coming to life and visiting him at night. This monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) spins a series of fables about princes and dragons, exploring complex themes Conor can't quite grasp because they don't have the simple morality of obvious heroes and villains. And now the monster tells Conor that he has to recount the final story himself, and that it has to be the truth.

Yes, this film is exploring the wrenching nature of mortality and grief, and how it feels to discover for the first time what it means to each of us personally. Thankfully, writer Patrick Ness (adapting his own novel) and director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible) are clever enough to make a film that will touch grown-ups and children in very different ways. The basic story works as an adventure odyssey with strong dramatic kicks. And while youngsters are caught up in the rich depth of ideas that are momentous but just out of reach, the audience members with experience in this area will find some scenes almost overwhelmingly emotional.

Felicity Jones Opens Up About Her Gruelling Fitness Regime For 'Rogue One'


Star Wars Felicity Jones

Having slayed the box offices on both sides of the Atlantic in the new Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, Felicity Jones opened up about the intense training regime she undertook in order to play the movie’s lead character, Jyn.

“After I got the call from Gareth [Jones, director] I was obviously ecstatic, but then I thought, ‘I’ve got to get to the gym REALLY quickly, I’ve got to get in shape for this film!’”

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story opened in the U.K. on December 15th, and is intended a spin-off from the Star Wars canon, and Jones’ character leads a mission to steal the blueprints from the Empire’s new weapon the Death Star, meaning this is probably set immediately before the events of the first ever Star Wars film A New Hope.

Felicity Jones Was Inspired By Princess Leia For Rogue One


Felicity Jones

After being Oscar-nominated for her role in 2014's The Theory of Everything, Felicity Jones takes a surprise trip into space for the Star Wars spin-off Rogue One. But she thinks her character Jyn Erso is just as complex as anyone she's played.

"Jyn was a bit of a child delinquent," she laughs. "She has grown up without her parents. She's had to survive on her own a lot of the time. But she's also very perceptive. She kind of has an animal awareness, and acts on her feelings."

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Review

Extraordinary

With the tagline "A Star Wars Story", this first spin-off from the saga isn't actually a stand-alone movie. It requires some understanding of the context as it chronicles events that lead directly into 1977's Episode IV: A New Hope. It's also a seriously rousing action film with a riveting cast of characters and a surprising willingness to embrace even the darkest elements of storytelling. In other words, it might be the first Star Wars movie made specifically for grown-ups.

It opens as the Empire is systematically crushing the rebellion, leaving them wondering if there's any point to continuing the fight. Rumours are swirling that the Empire is building a massive Death Star, and rebel Jyn (Felicity Jones) discovers that it was designed by her long-lost father Galen (Mads Mikkelsen), who sends her a message saying that he left a flaw in the system specifically for the rebels to exploit. So she joins a team to contact him, led by Cassian (Diego Luna), who doubts that Galen is on their side. They're accompanied by pilot Bodhi (Riz Ahmed) and the sarcastic robot K-2SO (Alan Tudyk), plus the blind wannabe Jedi Chirrut (Donnie Yen) and his battling sidekick Baze (Jiang Wen). And as their mission goes rogue, they come up against the slimy Imperial Director Orson (Ben Mendelson) and the vicious Darth Vader (again voiced by James Earl Jones).

Director Gareth Edwards (Monster) packs the movie with visual references to A New Hope, cleverly matching the design work by avoiding fakey digital effects in lieu of more practical, battle-scared models and lively settings on a series of new planets and a familiar one. This gives the film an electric atmosphere that's edgy and unpredictable even though we all know exactly how this mission has to end. At the beginning, the plot feels a bit splintered, but the strands come together with power, building a gnawing sense of momentum and some real gravitas along the way.

'Rogue One: A Star Wars Story' is arriving imminently, following the stand-alone story of Jyn Erso as she joins Rebel forces in a bid to help them destroy the plans for the Death Star.

It's an experience that posed many challenges for the actors, given the neverending amount of themes and emotions with the difference scenes.
