6 Preview Clips from Man on a Ledge Starring Sam Worthington
Posted 01.10.12 by BrentJS
After a trio of high-profile blockbuster movies in 2009 (Terminator Salvation and Avatar) and 2010 (Clash of the Titans), 2011 was something of a slow year for Australian actor Sam Worthington, with neither The Debt nor The Texas Killing Fields drawing much attention (or attendance). Worthington will most likely be back in blockbuster form in 2012 when the sequel to Clash of the Titans, Wrath of the Titans, opens in March, but before that he has one more indie project heading into select theaters, the Summit Entertainment thriller Man on a Ledge.
Directed by documentary filmmaker Asger Leth (Ghosts of Cité Soleil) from a script by Pablo F. Fenjves, Man on a Ledge sees Worthington playing a wrongly-accused disgraced cop who escapes from prison to steal the $30 million diamond he was originally convicted of stealing. What makes this different than your average run-of-the-mill heist movie? Worthington's character co-ordinates the heist while pretending that he is about to commit suicide by jumping from the ledge of a New York City skyscraper. Check out the new preview clips released by Summit Entertainment to decide whether you need to "jump" up and run to your theater to watch Worthington in Man on a Ledge.
Man on a Ledge also stars Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell, Genesis Rodriguez, Kyra Sedgwick, Ed Burns, Anthony Mackie and Ed Harris.
