You saw the official first poster this morning; now here's the first official trailer for the heist thriller titled, Man On A Ledge, which stars Sam Worthington, as an ex-cop-turned-con who threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, when the NYPD dispatches a female police psychologist to talk him down; but, unbeknown to the police officers, the suicide attempt is really a cover for "a massive diamond heist."

You saw the official first poster this morning; now here's the first official trailer for the heist thriller titled, Man On A Ledge, which stars Sam Worthington, as an ex-cop-turned-con who threatens to jump to his death from a Manhattan hotel rooftop, when the NYPD dispatches a female police psychologist to talk him down; but, unbeknown to the police officers, the suicide attempt is really a cover for "a massive diamond heist."

Oh, and by the way, Anthony Mackie co-stars, though I'm not sure what exactly his involvement here is. I haven't seen or read anything that gives it away.

Regardless, unless I blinked when it happened, I don't think I saw him anywhere in this trailer. Like I said, unless I blinked when it happened, because that's really all it would have taken for me to miss it - a blink. So... that maybe tells us something about his involvement in this (although he is highlighted on the poster); either that, or studio marketing doesn't think we really need him in the trailer to sell the picture. And maybe they're right. Of course, there might be further trailers, or character promos that highlight individual characters in the film.

Just thought I should throw all that out there, given all the debate that's been going on here lately about Taraji P Henson's exclusion from Person of Interest coverage - a discussion I've been meaning to jump into, but just haven't had the time to do so yet :)

Anyway, here's the trailer for Man On A Ledge, in theaters in January:
