Apple TV+ has debuted the first official trailer for Doug Liman's The Instigators, an upcoming heist thriller starring Academy Award-winners and Boston natives Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting; The Martian; The Departed) and Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea; Oppenheimer; The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) in the lead roles as two thieves who, after a botched robbery, are forced to go on the run with their therapist (Academy Award-nominee Hong Chau). 

The film's synopsis reads, "Rory (Damon) and Cobby (Affleck) are reluctant partners: a desperate father and an ex-con thrown together to pull off a robbery of the ill-gained earnings of a corrupt politician. But when the heist goes wrong, the two find themselves engulfed in a whirlwind of chaos, pursued not only by police, but also backwards 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."

In addition to Damon and Affleck, the supporting cast features Hong Chau ("Dr. Donna Rivera"), Paul Walter Hauser ("Booch"), Michael Stuhlbarg ("Mr. Besegai"), Ving Rhames ("Frank Toomey"), Alfred Molina ("Richie Dechico"), Toby Jones ("Alan Flynn"), Jack Harlow ("Scalvo"), Ron Perlman ("Mayor Miccelli"), Caylee Cowan, Don DiPetta, Heidi Garza, David Gborie, Sidney Bottino, Tom Mariano, Richie Moriarty, and Rob Gronkowski.

This new film will reunite Damon with Liman for the first time since 2002's The Bourne Identity, which was a roaring critical and commercial success, grossing over $214 million globally on an estimated $60 million production budget. That feature ultimately led to three Damon-led sequels and a spinoff. An untitled sixth film is currently in development, with Damon expected to reprise his titular role. 

This will be the seventh time Damon and Affleck have starred together, following Good Will HuntingGerryOcean's TwelveOcean's ThirteenInterstellar, and Oppenheimer

Through their Artists Equity banner, Damon also served as a producer on the project with Ben Affleck. 

The Instigators will hit select theaters on August 2, and will start streaming, exclusively on Apple TV+, on August 9!

Directed by Doug Liman and written by Chuck MacLean and Affleck, “The Instigators” also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Paul Walter Hauser, Ving Rhames, Alfred Molina and Toby Jones, with Jack Harlow and Ron Perlman.

That looks fun!!.

Damon’s definitely leaning more into the Boston Accent then Affleck seems to be imo but both seem good as does the rest of the cast which is stacked with talent…

I can easily see something like this being their love letter to Boston given it being set across the city as they are on the run and the trio interacting with various colorful characters.

Anyway , looking forward to it!!.

Ben’s getting too old for Matt to play with so Matt’s going after Ben’s little brother. 😜

@AnthonyVonGeek - I'm just glad Casey A is still working consistently after all those idiotic, cancel-culture accusations towards him decades ago. He's a great actor.

Oh, and Damon and Ben A just worked together on the film "Air." So, your comment doesn't make much sense.

@TheFinestSmack - He did at one point. Here's what just said in a response:
"I'm just glad Casey A is still working consistently after all those idiotic, cancel-culture accusations towards him decades ago. He's a great actor."

It was all B.S. so it never toppled his career thank goodness. He's a very good actor.

Never forget that Matt Damon is an Asgardian in the MCU.

@DocSpock -

Is there another movie with Matt Damon and Casey Affleck where they pull a heist in Boston?
Or are you just thinking of The Town, which just starred Ben Affleck, no Casey or Matt Damon.
