After finding out that Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw has stolen their retirement, Josh Kovacs and his fellow apartment building staff turn to petty crook Slide to plan an elaborate robbery.
Universal Pictures has dropped a trailer for action-comedy "Tower Heist". Coming out via Yahoo! Movies, the fresh preview gives a taste at the comedic chemistry between Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy as the former enlists the latter's help in planning to rob the billionaire who swindled him.
When Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is put under house arrest after being caught stealing two billion from his investors, a group of workers at his luxury Central Park condominium discover he lost all of their pensions in a Ponzi scheme. Now, they are out to take a revenge.
Led by Josh Kovacs (Stiller) and with the help of petty crook Slide (Murphy), they plan a heist to reclaim what he took from them. 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.
Along with the trailer, a poster has also been made available. The one-sheet sees Stiller, Murphy and the rest of the thieves gang looking fierce in all black outfit while standing in front of what seems to be a skyscraper. The image highlights a tagline that read, "It's not just a robbery. It's payback."
To come out in U.S. theaters on November 4, "Tower Heist" sees Murphy serving as its producer in addition to his starring role. This Brett Ratner-directed film is supported by a cast ensemble that include Tea Leoni, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Michael Pena, and Gabourey Sidibe.
