Four New Images and Red Band Trailer for 30 Minutes or Less
04.22.11 by Ryan
The first official photo from the upcoming comedy 30 Minutes or Less
debuted in January, and, since then, not much has been seen from director Ruben Fleischer's follow-up to his 2009 debut, Zombieland. Four new photos have debuted for the movie, but don't show much action, unlike the first photo which revealed Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari wearing masks and brandishing handguns (the photo with Danny McBride and Nick Swardson with a crossbow is a close second).
The comedy stars Eisenberg as a pizza delivery guy who is forced by two criminals (McBride and Swardson) to rob a bank. Ansari is Eisenberg's former best friend, who is enlisted to help out, since Eisenberg has a bomb strapped to his chest. In the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Fleischer admitted that 30 Minutes or Less' plot will keep audiences guessing.
It's not the first-ever bank-heist movie, but at the same time it's not predictable. Just when you think you know where it's headed, it goes in a different direction.
Eisenberg revealed that his character, a typical slacker, tried to use the situation to turn his life around.
My character spends the first 25 years of his life being lazy, and then one day making up for it. He has this extreme experience and uses that day to correct all the mistakes he's made.
Besides the photos, a red band trailer has arrived, offering the first footage from the movie, which opens on Aug. 12 opposite The Help and Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. Check out the NSFW red band trailer here.
