Car chases set in Europe seems to be a defining trait of 2008. Vantage Point kicked it off with its major pursuit sequence set in Spain. This autumn sees the arrival of two European espionage thrillers with their chases set in Paris and Italy.

Liam Neeson plays Bryan an ex-CIA agent in the film Taken who tracks down his daughter who has been kidnapped and forced into the slave trade. Bryan calls upon his previous skills as he tries to retrieve his daughter and punish the gang who has kidnapped her. The word is that the film has two car chases scenes: the first in a construction site, the other a pursuit sequence involving a boat speeding down the Seine. Taken has its UK release in late September.

Daniel Craig returns to the James Bond role that he made his own in Casino Royale. It has been a while since a Bond film has had a standout car chase in it and expectations are high for Quantum of Solace with some reports indicating that the film begins with an extended car chase sequence with Bond, in his Aston Martin DBS, pursued by assassins around Lake Garda. Let's hope that the reports turn out true!

collateralcollisionAfter the anticipation created by the Live For Speed - Collateral Collision trailer, it is with much pleasure that Varaces announces the release of the full twelve and half minute version of the film.

A homage to the car chase classics of the past, with a knowing wink to more recent car chase features, Collateral Collision was meticulously directed by Martin Bigg (aka Star wars Fanatic) with the collaborative help from the Live For Speed community.  Collateral Collision is at the same time a tribute to live action cinema and an indication of the potential of machinima film.

Watch Part I and Part 2.
