'Empire State' Trailer: The Rock and Liam Hemsworth Play the Least Interesting Game of Cat and Mouse
Here's the trailer for Empire State, a heist film that big franchise stars Dwayne Johnson and Liam Hemsworth yet seems to exist solely as a vacuum for enthusiasm. Notable otherwise for being the first thing Dito Montiel has directed without the inspiration of Channing Tatum's abs, the film also stars Emma Roberts, Michael Angarano, perpetual guest star Chris Diamantopoulos (The Office, the new Arrested Developments, Up All Night) and more in the real-life tale of a 1982 heist where... you know, the usual kind of heist stuff happens. Sorry if that's vague, but it's really hard to pay attention to this trailer.
The distributor is handling the film with similar passion--mis-labeling the film as "EMIPRE STATE" and making clear they're sending it to a straight-to-video hamper--and Hemsworth has echoed the public fervor with a tweet dutifully declaring, "'Empire State' trailer [link]." So without further ado, here it is:
The film hits DVD and Blu-ray in September, so you'll have to wait until then to find out if the plot results in whatever desirable outcome one might hope for.
