Tower Heist Trailer Hits The Web
Stiller! Murphy! Ratner! Towers! Heists!

So here it is, the trailer for Tower Heist a movie about, would you believe it, a heist that takes place in a tower. And it's, like, well slick and stuff and junk.

Directed by Brett Ratner, and starring Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck and Matthew Broderick, it's got plenty of talent on show, and from the looks from the trailer, it's pretty good fun.

The plot sees a group of staff members who work at a luxury apartment block deciding to take on the evil multi-millionaire upstairs who has taken all their money in a scam. 

But with Stiller, Broderick and Affleck's characters not that experienced in the whole performing-a-heist thing, Stiller's Josh Kovacs turns to an old, um, acquiantance who's just left jail (Eddie Murphy as Slide Dalphael) to smarten up their crew.

There's a touch of Welcome To Collinwood here, except Welcome To Collinwood would never have Jay-Z playing over the top of the trailer or Gabourey Sidibe hitting on Eddie Murphy at the end. That we remember, anyway.

So check it out and let us know what you think. Could this be Eddie 's live action comeback? Does it make you giggle? Whatever the weather, there's an exclusive image from the film alongside an interview with Mr. Ratner in this month's issue, which, would you believe it, is out now. How exciting.

And just so you know, Tower Heist is in cinemas November 4.

Fuck Brett Ratner!
Fuck Brett Ratner! Fuck Brett Ratner! God he is a awful director and Eddie Murphy looks like his typical unfunny self. I hope it ends Ratner's career but sadly he has enough contacts to ensure he can get another big job. I would say he is a glorified cameraman but that is an insult to camara crews because they work very hard and had to to go through a lot of training. More

I'm not a ratner fan, and haven't been a Murphy fan for a while, but this looks pretty great. More
