Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari in the new red band 30 Minutes or Less trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
As I was watching the second red band trailer for 30 MINUTES OR LESS, I was prepared to reiterate my viewpoint that the movie looks overly simple and unfunny. But about halfway through, the trailer took a turn for the better and had me laughing out loud. So I guess I’m still confused about whether or not this film is going to be worthwhile. The story is simple enough in which a pizza delivery guy is forced to rob a bank after two amateur thugs strap a bomb to his chest.
Jesse Eisenberg and director Ruben Fleischer made a great team on ZOMBIELAND, so I’m hoping they can recreate the magic in 30 MINUTES OR LESS. If nothing else, Aziz Ansari looks like he has a few great lines and Eisenberg gets to say “you just brought a gun to a bomb fight”. I’m sure that’s a line he never thought he’d say. The film stars Eisenberg, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride and Nick Swarsdon and opens everywhere on August 12th.
