‘Trespass Against Us’ Trailer: Michael Fassbender and His Family of Thieves

Trespass Against Us looks to be a return of the Michael Fassbender we all grew to love a few years ago. This is a small, indie film about a family of getaway drivers. Or something along those lines.

This trailer for Trespass Against Us has a solid mix of family drama, tension, and what appears to be some pretty high-tech cops and robbers business as it moves along. Check it out:

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.

Looks interesting at least, a great blend of several familiar elements. It’s nice to see Fassbender get back to his roots, playing a miscreant of sorts in a small movie rather than Magneto or the Assassin… guy… all the time. The fact he squares off against Brendan Gleeson is just icing on the cake.

Trespass Against Us will open first in the UK this March, but there is no stateside release date yet. This has the look of a US VOD release, but we shall see.
