OK everyone, last trailer this week, promise. From Ruben Fleischer, the director of Zombieland, comes his new comedy 30 Minutes or Less. Once again we follow Jesse Eisenberg through some more inescapable socially awkward situations and hijinx. This time though, Mr Fleicher is having Jesse trade Zombies and twinkies for a bomb and a bank robbery…trust me, it’ll make more sense when you watch it. Have a look!
So remember what I said yesterday about Redband trailers hyping a movie that probably won’t be very good? Well today I take a slightly recanted stance. 30 Minutes or Less looks pretty damn funny and I’m eager to see more, especially if the film snagged both Fleicher and Eisenberg. Could be a sing of underlying quality and this may be the one exception to my Redband theory… although this does star Danny McBride, Nick Swardson and Aziz Ansari who didn’t do much for any film they’re in. Maybe I should reserve my expectations.
Still, this looks like enough dumb fun to serve as a proper diversion from the cornucopia of comic/tentpole films this Summer. Media Rights Capital has slated 30 Minutes or Lessfor a release date of August 12th this Summer. What do you think? Does this look like brainless fun? Or just brainless??
