First Trailer for Tower Heist
07.28.11 by Mandy
About 15 seconds into the first trailer for Tower Heist, it's pretty clear that this isn't going to be just another caper story; this is definitely going to have some funny. In fact, it looks like this might be the funniest heist movie since The Great Muppet Caper.
The movie stars Ben Stiller as the manager of an ultra-swanky New York apartment building where Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) lives and is put under house arrest after being caught operating a Ponzi scheme. It turns out that Shaw has swindled the building employees out of their retirements, so the staffers decide to steal back what's theirs. Matthew Broderick, Gabourey Sidibe, and Casey Affleck co-star as the rookie thieves, and Eddie Murphy is the petty crook recruited to teach them his trade.
Tower Heist is directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour 3), with a screenplay written by Ted Griffin (Ocean's Eleven) and Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can). It opens November 4.
