Prior to last night’s Moneyball screening at the AMC Lincoln Square I saw a somewhat longer and more plot-specific and dialogue-specific trailer for Tower Heist than the one released on 7.28. I was sold. It persuaded me that due to Eddie Murphy‘s standout performance, Tower Heist will probably be a funnier Ocean’s 11. The idea alone of Murphy doing Gabby Sidibe…the mind reels.
The embedded trailer here is an international version that somewhat resembles the one I saw last night, but isn’t exactly the same. The downside is that 15 or 20 of the jokes will now fall flat because everyone will have heard them 30 or 40 times by the time the film opens in November.
