Is Millennium Dumping Toronto's Trespass, Starring Kidman and Cage?
Poor Nic Cage can't get a break from Millennium Entertainment. He co-stars with Nicole Kidman as husband and wife in Joel Schumacher's R-rated heist thriller Trespass, which is making its debut at the Toronto Film Festival (trailer below). The movie is scheduled to be released by Millennium Entertainment (formerly First Look) on October 14 in theaters and on VOD, followed a bit too swiftly by a Blu-ray release on November 1. "Millennium Entertainment will release TRESPASS on October 14, 2011 in theaters and at home – rent it with your remote control," invites the press release.

Ridley Scott: From Alien Reboot Prometheus to Blade Runner Sequel

The movie is a further exploration of that future world produced with the scale and scope that new technology makes possible. And its ultimate goal is "to scare the living shit out of you," Scott said via satellite from Iceland. Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, and Noomi Rapace star in the film due in June, 2012.
