With EW dropping a fresh look last week, Sony has delivered the rest, with a small crop of new pictures for the upcoming comedy "30 Minutes Or Less," including our first look at Danny McBride in the film.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Michael Peña, and with a script by the Black List-approved Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan, our expectations are high. The film centers on two white trash fledgling criminals (McBride and his lapdog lieutenant Swardson) who kidnap a slacker pizza delivery driver (Eisenberg) and force him — by ticking bomb — to rob a bank within 30 minutes. Ansari plays Chet, the history teacher best friend of Eisenberg’s character who has his shit together, but gets roped into the kidnapping. Peña plays a gangster character who becomes a significant problem in the second act of the screenplay. A reader recently send in a report from a early screening they attended, and described the film as “a short, tight, lightly plotted movie” that runs about 80 minutes. He also told us “the two main ‘buddy’ groups, Eisenberg/Ansari and McBride/Swardson, have very little interaction with each other. The movie boils down to those two groups going back and forth in separate scenes that almost feel ad-libbed a lot of the time. Ansari, Swardson and Pena all kill it. Really, really funny. Ansari is hard to take seriously (his acting is so-so) but he is really hysterical.”

So yeah, our calendars are marked for this one. The film hits on August 12th -- check out a few more pics below. [via IMDB]
