Review: SLEEPLESS / COLLIDE / LIVE BY NIGHT

Undercover Las Vegas police officer Vincent Downs (Jamie Foxx) finds himself caught in a high-stakes web of corrupt cops, internal affairs and murderous gangsters. When a failed heist leads to the kidnapping of his teenage son (Octavius J. Johnson), Downs must race against time during a wild and restless night to save him and bring the criminals to justice.

Jamie Foxx wasn't happy with the released version of SLEEPLESS and said on stage at the BET Awards in June of 2017: "I can't wait to tell you about that joint Baby Driver! It's crazy, it's cool, and it ain't a typical film. It brings a thrill ride, so everybody can experience it. And it's good too! It ain't like that last joint I had. I know, it's tough. It's tough when you still gotta promote it. You know it's bad when they don't ask you nothing about the movie like, 'Man that jacket you was wearing is tight'. Yeah, I know it sucked." (IMDB)

Casey Stein (Nicholas Hoult) agrees to hijack a shipment of cocaine for his old boss (Ben Kingsley) in return for money to pay for his girlfriend Juliette's (Felicity Jones) transplant. Unfortunately, those drugs belong to Hagen Kahl (Anthony Hopkins), Germany's most powerful kingpin. Kahl seeks revenge by kidnapping Juliette and sending his goons after Stein. Casey must now race against time in a desperate attempt to save the woman he loves.

Zac Efron and Amber Heard were originally cast as the leads, but were later replaced by Nicholas Hoult and Felicity Jones. (IMDB)

It's the Roaring `20s and Prohibition hasn't stopped the flow of booze in an underground network of gangster-run speakeasies. The opportunity to gain power and money is there for any man with enough ambition and nerve, and Joe Coughlin (Ben Affleck), the son of the Boston Police superintendent, long ago turned his back on his strict upbringing for the spoils of being an outlaw. But even among criminals there are rules, and Joe breaks a big one: crossing a powerful mob boss by stealing his money and his moll.

LIVE BY NIGHT holds the record for the biggest drop in theater count for a major studio release. For its first two weeks of wide release, the film played in 2,822 theaters in the United States and Canada. By the third week, only 163 theaters were showing it. (IMDB)
