After a couple of amusing trailers and clips for Ruben Fleischer's "30 Minutes or Less," Sony knocks it out of the goddamn park with this latest, lengthy red band trailer which delivers big belly laughs right from the raunchy opening gag.
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Michael Peña, 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. Ansari plays Chet, the history teacher best friend of Eisenberg’s character who has his shit together, but gets roped into the kidnapping. The movie looks as (awesomely) outlandish as the premise, and the pairing of Eisenberg and Ansari, that we at first were worried was a bit one-sided, looks a lot more even handed here.
"30 Minutes or Less" opens on August 12th. Close your office door and check out the trailer below. [Screen Junkies]
