If you’re going to end on a high, it’s good to have one as good as the punchline to “you just brought a gun to a bomb show.” The latest trailer for 30 Minutes or Less - which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Nick Swarsdon – is red banded, so the jokes are filthier and also hilarious. The film opens August 12, and the new trailer is their best ad yet. Check it out…
Comedy is a tricky beast, and it’s exciting to see what director Ruben Fleischer has in store. He’s got a confident touch behind the camera, so it’s going to have the slick polish that is often lacking in modern comedy. There’s also a strong plot, with an obvious deadline involved, so the film – if it works – should move.
We did a set visit where we talked to the director and stars Dilshad Vadsaria and Ansari, Eisenberg, and McBride and Swarsdon if you’re curious for more. With this and a number of the more recent August trailers, it’s looking like this could be a very strong end for summer movies. That is, if these films deliver. And after the start of this summer, it’d be nice to see some films that are original, or at least deliver on the promise of the material.
Does this give away too much?
