'Tower Heist' Trailer: Brett Ratner's Timely, Proletarian 'Ocean's Eleven'

July 28, 2011


Continuing the newfound tradition of aggressive, unabashed title straightforwardness seen in the likes of Cowboys and Aliens and Horrible Bosses, greasy Brett Ratner's Tower Heist is, naturally, a film about a tower heist. More specifically, it's about a tower heist committed by Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena, Casey Affleck, and Precious, who play tower employees wronged by tower resident Alan Alda--a Bernie Madoff-style a-hole suspected of hiding a vast fortune in his tower penthouse. In Brett Ratner's ultimate betrayal to Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy also stars, playing a recently-released convict Stiller employs to be all sassy and help out with the finer points of theft.

Here's the trailer. It sure looks like a movie called Tower Heist!
