Nicole Kidman must have really enjoyed her time spent hamming it up on the set of “Batman Forever.” That (and a payday) appear to be the only justifiable reasons she agreed to reteam with her “Batman” helmer Joel Schumacher for the domestic thriller “Trespass,” which plays TIFF in September before heading to VOD and limited release in theaters October 14.
While both Nicolas Cage and Kidman are Oscar winners, “Trespass” is a Millennium production — a high-end Millennium production, but still. Recent Millennium credits include “Drive Angry,” “The Mechanic” and “Stone” — high-action titles, high-caliber casts, forgettable movies. (Fingers crossed that things will change with Millennium production “The Paperboy,” Lee Daniels’ first film since “Precious.”)
The trailer dropped late last night and it looks like more of the same. Kidman and Cage are a very well-off married couple who become victims of a vicious home invasion; betrayal and deception follow.
Kidman screams and look mysterious; Cage mugs it up to his heart’s content as a victim who fights back. It looks like it should do very well in its post-theatrical life.
