Trespass Against Us Trailer

Blood is a brutal bond. A24 has unveiled a trailer for an indie crime drama from England titled Trespass Against Us, which just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month. The film stars Michael Fassbender as a man trying desperately to escape the dangerous criminal world presided over by his savage father, played by Brendan Gleeson. The cast includes Rory Kinnear, Sean Harris, Lyndsey Marshal, Killian Scott and Georgie Smith. Not only does this look like a solid crime thriller with plenty to offer in terms of action and drama, but it also has an "astonishing" score by The Chemical Brothers to top it off. Gleeson, Fassbender and The Chemical Brothers pretty much has me sold no matter what. The car chases look like they might be the best part, but I'm definitely interested in seeing this anyway. Fire this up.

Here's the first trailer (+ poster) for Adam Smith's Trespass Against Us, direct from A24's YouTube:

Set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain's richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Smith) coming of age, Chad soon finds himself locked in a battle with his father for the future of his young family. When Colby learns of Chad's dreams for another life he sets out to tie his son and grandson into the archaic order that has bound the Cutler family for generations. He engineers a spectacular piece of criminal business involving a heist, a high-speed car chase and a manhunt, which leaves Chad bruised and bloodied and with his very freedom at stake. Trespass Against Us is directed by filmmaker Adam Smith making his feature debut, from a screenplay written by Alastair Siddons. The film just premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. A24 will open Trespass Against Us in select theaters early 2017.

    I don't know about the story, but Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson give some hint of a goodie ...
    Seems good. I don't think these two guys are capable of making a real stinker at this point. The Chemical Brothers are quite the score for this film as well. HANNA was so freaking good.

    This film wasn't on my radar so again I have to thank you for offering it up, Alex. I think Gleeson is one of the best ever and will see anything he's in so I'll keep an eye out for this one.
    • I can watch Gleeson's face for two hours.
      • Bo him in Braveheart and The Guard and Calvary. He was outstanding in In Burges. I loved that film. Great stuff when he's crawling up the stairs deadly wounded, tosses coins below to warn people to get out of the way before he jumps to alert Colin Farrell...all the while the The Chieftain's Raglan Road plays. What an unusual yet perfect song for the director to choose for that sequence. Righto Cheerio?
        • You forgot Kingdom of heavens.

            You're absolutely right, I did forget. In fact, when I first read your reply I had to try to remember who is was in the film. The guy who got his head chopped off and stuck on a stake! And I really like(d) this movie. Have always tried to understand why many critics bashed it and it only did like 47 million here in the States. I managed 167 million more internationally so that helped, but why? I think here the folks can't handle a narrative different from the one they've been spoon fed through our media. Especially when it comes to the Middle East and takes a truthful look at the Christians behavior during the Crusades and in Jerusalem. Also, the Arab leader was a real character with intelligence and grace and that's doesn't fly in these neck of the woods. Too bad as it's an excellent film with an excellent cast and an excellent point of view on the mess in the Middle East and how it's been going on forever and how none of the participants are what they would like you to think. Cheers, tarek, and thanks for reminding me of Gleeson being in this favorite movie of mine.
