Before bringing a hit video game to life this December with Assassin's Creed, Michael Fassbender will play a man trying to escape his family's criminal enterprise in Trespass Against Us. A24 has released the first trailer and poster for this thriller, which will debut on DirecTV through their deal with A24 on November 24, before hitting theaters sometime in early 2017. We also have the first poster, which pits Michael Fassbender's Chad Cutler against his nefarious father Colby, played by Brendan Gleeson.
Trespass Against Us is set across three generations of the Cutler family who live as outlaws in their own anarchic corner of Britain's richest countryside. Chad Cutler (Michael Fassbender) is heir apparent to his bruising criminal father, Colby (Brendan Gleeson) and has been groomed to spend his life hunting, thieving and tormenting the police. But with his own son, Tyson (Georgie 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. With the law cracking down and his father tightening his grip, Chad is forced into increasingly desperate measures.
Featuring incredible performances - and an astonishing score by The Chemical Brothers - Trespass Against Us is at once an exhilarating crime thriller and a profoundly moving story about love and family. The supporting cast for this A24 Films release includes Sean Harris, Rory Kinnear, Lyndsey Marshal, Tony Way, Gerard Kearns, Killian Scott, Paul Blackwell and Anastasia Hille. This film marks the feature debuts for both director Adam Smith and writer Alistair Siddons.
Adam Smith started his directing career with several episodes of the U.K. series Skins, followed by episodes of Little Dorrit and Doctor Who, along with the documentary The Chemical Brothers: Don't Think. Alistair Siddons directed documentaries Turn It Loose and Inside Out before making his writing debut with Trespass Against Us. Take a look at the first trailer and poster below.
