It was a bit of a surprise when Joel Schumacher’s upcoming thriller was announced as part of Toronto International Film Festival 2011 slate. The Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman-starrer was thought to be getting a shoddy theatrical release and a VOD debut, but it now looks like it will get an official bow. We have our first trailer via Yahoo and it looks like something that may have been decent in Cage’s ’90s glory but in today’s age it seems entirely cliche. I’m not sure what Kidman saw in a project like this one and after Schumacher’s recent disaster Twelve, this one stirs very little interest. Check out the trailer below for the film also starring Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato.
In a private, wealthy community, priority is placed on security and no exception is made for the Miller family’s estate. Behind their pristine walls and manicured gardens, Kyle (Nicolas Cage), a fast-talking businessman, has entrusted the mansion’s renovation to his stunning wife, Sarah (Nicole Kidman).
But between making those big decisions and keeping tabs on their defiant teenage daughter (Liana Liberato), Sarah often finds herself distracted by a young, handsome worker (Cam Gigandet) at their home. Nothing is what it seems, and it will take a group of cold-blooded criminals led by Elias (Ben Mendelsohn), who have been planning a vicious home invasion for months, to bring the Miller family together. When they storm the manor, everyone is tangled up in betrayal, deception, temptation and scheming. Kyle, Sarah and Avery will take the ultimate risk to make it out with their lives – and their family – intact.
TRESPASS is directed by Joel Schumacher and stars Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet, Liana Liberato, Jordana Spiro, Dash Mihok, Emily Meade and Nico Tortorella. The film was written by Karl Gajdusek, produced by Rene Besson, Irwin Winkler and David Winkler and was executive produced by Avi Lerner, Danny Dimbort, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson and John Thompson.
Trespass hits theaters on October 14, 2011.
