Apple Original Films unveils “The Instigators” trailer

“The Instigators” will debut in select theaters August 2, 2024, before its global premiere on Apple TV+ on August 9, 2024

Apple Original Films today unveiled the trailer for its upcoming feature “The Instigators,” hailing from Apple Studios, starring Academy Award winners Matt Damon and Casey Affleck, and directed by Doug Liman. “The Instigators” will make its global debut in select theaters August 2, 2024 before its global premiere August 9, 2024 on Apple TV+.

Rory (Damon) and Cobby (Affleck) are reluctant partners: a desperate father and an ex-con thrown together to rob a corrupt politician’s ill-gained earnings. But when the heist goes wrong, the two find themselves engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos, pursued not only by police but also backward bureaucrats and vengeful crime bosses. Completely out of their depth, they convince Rory’s therapist (Hong Chau) to join their riotous getaway through the city, where they must put aside their differences and work together to evade capture — or worse. “The Instigators” also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Paul Walter Hauser, Ving Rhames, Alfred Molina and Toby Jones, with Jack Harlow and Ron Perlman.

An Apple Original Film hailing from Artists Equity, Studio 8 and The Walsh Company, “The Instigators,” is directed by Liman, written by Chuck MacLean and Casey Affleck and produced by Ben Affleck, Damon, Jeff Robinov, John Graham, Kevin J. Walsh and Alison Winter, with Celia D. Costas, Dani Bernfeld, Kevin Halloran, Michael Joe, Cynthia Dahlgren and Luciana Damon serving as executive producers.
