A red band trailer has arrived giving us our first look at "30 Minutes or Less," director Ruben Fleischer's R-rated comedy follow-up to "Zombieland" -- and can we say we want a little bit more?

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. Peña plays a gangster character who becomes a significant problem in the second act of the screenplay. And so far, there's only the barest hint of a plot here and more troubling -- as was suggested by some feedback we received from early screenings -- Ansari, as funny as he is, looks a bit uneven opposite Eisenberg. That said, his reaction to the bomb-strapped Eisenberg coming to his school made us laugh out loud.

The advance word on this is good, with the film apparently running “a short, tight, lightly plotted” 80 minutes or so which should make for some perfect brainless fun late in the summer. The movie hits on August 12th, check out the trailer below. [IGN]
