Trailer and Poster for 'Tower Heist' Starring Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy Arrives

If its 'working stiffs who decide to rob the billionaire who defrauded their pensions' plot weren't such a blatant capitalization on recent financial scandals, you'd be forgiven for thinking that Tower Heist looks like an ensemble robbery comedy that someone like Woody Allen would have tried to make 13 years ago.  For starters, it stars Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Alan Alda, Matthew Broderick and Tea Leoni.  The only actors that tip off the fact that this is a 2011 film are Michael Pena and Gabourey Sidibe.  Oh, and the grey hair on Stiller and Broderick's hair, that's kind of a tell as well.

And while that sounds like a knock on the film, Tower Heist looking like it belongs in a generational league with Small Time Crooks, The Curse of the Jade Scorpion, Nothing to Lose and There Goes the Neighborhood is actually one of the few reasons that we're still holding out hope for this.  The dated nature of the movie isn't nearly as bright a red flag as the fact that it was directed by Brett Ratner and appears to have had no less than eight screenwriters work on it over time (maybe it really has taken over a decade to get this made).
