New Tower Heist trailer tries hard
The new trailer for Tower Heist is really doing a job of repositioning itself from the previous trailers, and not because of the joke about epilepsy being removed, although the aftermath of that is still in there, but because it's trying to bring out the action and heist elements much more than the previous.
It does have a great cast with Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Téa Leoni, Michael Peña, Alan Alda, Gabourey Sidibe and Judd Hirsch, but I'm still not sold on it yet.
I think it's perhaps because of Ben Stiller and the appearance of him means that we're expecting a Stiller-esque comedy film that may not be to everyone's liking, and the trailers so far haven't really disputed that.
Still, the new trailer for Tower Heist is faster and more heist-like, and I'm curious to see how Eddie Murphy does back in the saddle, hopefully not a Dolittle performance, but more a do a lot and win us over performance.
Here's the new trailer for Tower Heist.
