Trespass Against Us trailer

Before you watch Michael Fassbender play a man descended from a long line of assassins, how about watching Michael Fassbender as a man descended from a long line of low-level criminals? The actor recently hit TIFF with Trespass Against Us, which chronicles three generations of a criminal family in the British countryside.

Brendon Gleeson plays patriarch Colby, who’s alternately charming and intimidating, while Fassbender plays his son Chad. Father and son don’t always see eye to eye, but their tensions really boil over when Chad decides he wants out of the family lifestyle for the sake of his son, young Tyson (Georgie Smith). Trespass Against Us is the feature directing debut of Adam Smith, whose work you may have seen on the British show Skins and Doctor Who. Smith also shot a documentary for the Chemical Brothers, who have returned the favor by scoring Trespass Against Us. Watch the Trespass Against Us trailer below.  Read More »
