"Twelve," Town Creek" and "The Number 23." Those are the last three films we've seen from director Joel Schumacher whose career has included passable entertainments like "St. Elmo's Fire," "Falling Down" and "A Time To Kill" but has taken a seemingly irreversible nosedive.

"Twelve," Town Creek" and "The Number 23." Those are the last three films we've seen from director Joel Schumacher whose career has included passable entertainments like "St. Elmo's Fire," "Falling Down" and "A Time To Kill" but has taken a seemingly irreversible nosedive.

Which brings us to his next effort, "Trespass." On the surface, it seems like it might be a return to a form, a thriller starring Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Ben Mendelsohn, Cam Gigandet and Liana Liberato. And while the premise -- centering on a husband and wife, played by Cage and Kidman, who are taken hostage by four brutal home invaders seeking easy cash with chaos further ensuing as betrayal and deception, within the camp of criminals, are uncovered -- seems a bit low-rent, we had hoped the presence of the aforementioned talent would help elevate the material. Apparently not.

Movieline picked up on a since deleted tweet by the official "Trespass" Twitter account that pointed in the direction of the film's poster which you see here. The lo-res poster reveals a release date of October 14th. Okay, that's fine. However, in much smaller print the poster seems to suggest a home video date is also planned and according to VideoETA that theatrical bow won't last long: "Trespass" is headed to DVD (and we presume VOD) on November 1st as confirmed by VideoETA and Amazon.

So, if we had to make a guess, we'll presume the theatrical bow will be major markets only and it won't last much longer than the two weeks before the film essentially goes straight-to-video two weeks later. So yet another movie by Joel Schumacher that doesn't make the grade, and unfortunately we can't say we're too surprised. It's just a bummer this cast had to down with the ship.
