Something very strange happened today. A trailer for an upcoming Eddie Murphy movie appeared online and it actually looked watchable. To add to the strangeness it’s a movie directed by Brett Ratner, the man partly responsible for the disappointment that was X-Men 3.
You can watch the trailer for Tower Heist, which also stars Ben Stiller, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Téa Leoni, Michael Peña, and Gabourey Sidibe, below:
After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them.
It looks like a pretty average comedy, but even that’s a big step up for Murphy after Meet Dave and Norbit. The inclusion of Ben Stiller and Casey Affleck will probably help sell this film, which hits November 4th.
