Is 2011 the year of the underdog, the year of the unexpected? So far its looking like that. When Brett Ratner got the Oscar’s gig he definitely opened a few eyes, he then has gotten one of his upcoming movies cast Eddie Murphy to present those Oscars but now November 4th has Ratner pulled off coup and made a decent film with Tower Heist? What we’ve seen so far in footage its looking like we have a fun movie on our hands however in this new TV spot we don’t see much in new footage and a movie constantly markets same footage in different ways you have tread with caution.
Tower Heist starring Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Alan Alda, Matthew Broderick, Judd Hirsch, Téa Leoni, Michael Peña and Gabourey Sidibe.
Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an all-star cast in Tower Heist, a comedy caper about working stiffs who seek revenge on the Wall Street swindler who stiffed them. After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them.
Queens native Josh Kovacs (Stiller) has managed one of the most luxurious and well-secured residences in New York City for more than a decade. Under his watchful eye, nothing goes undetected. In the swankiest unit atop Josh’s building, Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is under house arrest after being caught stealing two billion from his investors. The hardest hit among those he defrauded? The tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage.
With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh’s crew turns to petty crook Slide (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible…to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo. Though amateurs, these rookie thieves know the building better than anyone. Turns out they’ve been casing the place for years, they just didn’t know it.
