Trespass trailer with Nicolas Cage Trespass Trailer: The Next Crazy Nic Cage Movie

Once you learn that the upcoming home invasion thriller Trespass stars Nicolas Cage and was directed by Joel Schumacher – the man behind titles like Batman & Robin, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Number 23 - you immediately start wondering just how kooky this film is going to be.

When you watch the trailer for the film – which reunites Schumacher and Cage for the first time since the gruesome 8mm - there should be no doubt in your mind: this flick looks just as outrageous as you would expect, given the talent involved.

Trespass stars Cage and Nicole Kidman as a wealthy married couple who, along with their daughter (Liana Liberato), are taken hostage by a pack of masked criminals and are forced to hand over their riches under penalty of death and dismemberment. However, the tables start to turn when Cage and his family decide they won’t be going down without putting up a fight.

For more on that, watch the Trespass trailer (via Yahoo! Movies) below:


“Pulpy” is definitely one of the words that comes to mind after watching this preview for Trespass, which will be just the latest B-movie featuring Cage to hit theaters this year (after Season of the Witch and Drive Angry). When you realize this film is headlined by two Oscar-winners and helmed by a man who’s been nominated for the Palme d’Or, the Golden Berlin Bear, and a Razzie, it becomes kind of hard to say if this could be an absurd-but-fun thrill ride – or just a dumb potboiler.

Schumacher delivered a surprisingly effective single-location thriller with Phone Booth back in 2002, but chances are good you haven’t even heard about most of his output in recent years (Blood Creek, Twelve), which has largely been dismissed as generic and forgettable. Trespass looks like it’ll be mostly a lower-grade variation on David Fincher’s Panic Room, but it could surprise and rank alongside titles like Phone Booth or Tigerland as one of Schumacher’s better films. Maybe.

One other thing to note: Trespass was scripted by Karl Gajdusek, a former story editor for Dead Like Me and co-scriber of TRON: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski’s upcoming sci-fi flick, Oblivion. Hopefully Gajdusek has managed to churn out an engaging thriller with Trespass.


Trespass begins a limited theatrical release in the U.S. on October 14th, 2011.

  1. I’m always up for a good old revenge/turn the tables flick.


  2. Nicholas Cage and your hair pieces. When will you just embrace the bald. Poor Joel Schumacher. Be wary has slowly become attached to your name.

  3. I might actually watch this

  4. One summer me and my friends watch Wickerman everyweek as a party movie. It was hilarious.

    Weird that this movie looks so bad yet everyone wants to see it anyhow. I agree that it looks fun (funny) and i may be temped to get this on DVD for next summer

  5. eh looks ok but its got cage in it so i might watch =D

  6. 8mm no tiene nada de mala, todo lo contrario!!! En cuanto a tu comentario
    arena schaefer de que se trata de una película indignante he de decirte que lo realmente indignante son tus propios comentarios y los de algunas de las personas que escribieron antes que yo porque lamentablemente no pueden dar una opinión seria sin basarse en burlas absurdas. El trailer se ve bastante bueno, lástima tener que esperar todavía un buen tiempo para poder ver la película.

    • press 2 for english pls? :)

  7. Wow this looks AWESOME! I’ve been waiting for a great movie.. and I love Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman… This is going to rock!

  8. This looks hokey as hell. Nicole Kidman hasn’t had a hit in years and is possibly slumming it a little.
    But…It’s a Nic Cage vehicle! Yaay!!
    I just love that crazy guy. Anybody see him wig out off set during the new Rider shoot?
    Nic Cage could star in a black and white movie about concentration camp surviving dwarve homosexuals and i’d be first in line to buy a ticket.
    I just can’t take my eyes of the geezer!

  9. How could you not mention that Kidman will be reuniting with Schumaker.

    (As we all know she was Dr. Chase Meridian in Batman Forever)
