Here are the poster and first trailer for Brett Ratner‘s Tower Heist. I read a few drafts of the screenplay and, well, none of them were really quite right, but there were some fun situations and a lot of business that should come of well in the hands of a talented cast – which, give or take, the film actually has.
The slow transformation from this project being “the black Ocean’s Eleven” to something all the more regular, and white faced, is something of a Hollywood predictability. What a silly place. The lip service to class consciousness in this trailer should fool no-one.
I feel especially bad for the actors who likely considered their involvement in the “compromised” film just that – a compromise. These are the few inches they can claw back from the scared, dollar-chasing dragon.
