AT&T Delivers “Trespass Against Us” Starring Academy Award®-Nominee Michael Fassbender and Golden Globe®-Nominee Brendan Gleeson

Catch the Crime Thriller This Thanksgiving Exclusively on DIRECTV CINEMA®

AT&T* is giving DIRECTV customers an exclusive look at “Trespass Against Us.” Adam Smith (“The Chemical Brothers: Don’t Think”) directs the film. It stars Academy Award®-Nominee Michael Fassbender (“X-Men: Apocalypse”), Golden Globe®-Nominee Brendan Gleeson (“Edge of Tomorrow”), Lyndsey Marshal (“Hereafter”) and Killian Scott (“Love/Hate”).

“Trespass Against Us” was an official selection for both the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival and 2016 BFI London Film Festival. Watch it starting Nov. 24, on DIRECTV CINEMA, before it hits theaters Jan. 20.

The plot

“Trespass Against Us” is set across 3 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). He 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.
