Trailer: Trespass Against Us

Brendon Gleeson and Michael Fassbender star, Doctor Who’s Adam Smith directs. It’s Trespass Against Us…

Does Michael Fassbender sleep? Because he churns out films at a pace that suggests otherwise. And it’s not like he’s just phoning it in with these performances, either.

The latest Fassbender flick to hit will be Irish family thriller Trespass Against Us, in which Fassbender plays a man caught between his father’s wish for him to continue the family outlaw business, and his desire to pass on a different legacy to his young son.

Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges, Calvary) co-stars as Fassbender’s character’s father and with these two Irish acting powerhouses in one film, Trespass Against Us is already something of a must-see for us.

The film is being helmed by Doctor Who and Skins filmmaker Adam Smith (his Who credits include The Eleventh Hour) and was written by Alastair Siddons.

A trailer for the film has landed too – and here’s a glimpse at what to expect…

Here’s the official synopsis:

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.
