The first trailer has been released for the new comedy heist film, Tower Heist, which was directed by the one and only Brett Ratner. Guess what? It looks exactly like something Ratner would direct. The story for the film follows a group of workers at a luxury Central Park condominium that find out one of the penthouse billionaire's in the building has stolen their retirement. A team is formed to plot a revenge heist to reclaim what he took from them.
The film does have a great cast of actors that includes Ben Stiller, Alan Alden, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck, Matthew Broderick, Téa Leoni, and Michael Peña. But even with this cast, it's hard to get behind the fact that Ratner is directing.
The film is set to come out on November 11th 2011, check out the trailer below and tell us what you think. Does it look to you? Can you look beyond the fact that Ratner directed it? I guess these are the only kinds of films that he's good at making.
