Nicholas Hoult Felicity Jones

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!'"

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.

What is revealed to Conor is a monster who starts talking with the boy. He says he'll tell the boy a series of stories in return for the boy eventually telling his own. As nights pass, the monster and the boy become closer friends but as the monster begins to get Conor into trouble, he must face up to a few issues in his life that he's been avoiding.

The book was originally published in 2011 but had its roots actually came from famed children's author Siobhan Dowd who wrote Bog Child.

A Monster Calls stars Liam Neeson, Lewis MacDougall, Felicity Jones & Sigourney Weaver.
