First Trailer For Ratner’s ‘Tower Heist’

Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Casey Affleck star in Brett Ratner’s (Rush Hour, Red Dragon, X-Men: The Last Stand) new action-comedy.

Here is the synopsis of the movie via the movies official website:

“In the upcoming action-comedy film Tower Heist, Queens native Josh Kovacs (Ben Stiller) has managed one of the most luxurious and well-secured residences in New York City for more than a decade. Under his watchful eye, nothing goes undetected. In the swankiest unit atop Josh’s building, Wall Street titan Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) is under house arrest after being caught stealing $2 billion from his investors. The hardest hit among those he defrauded? The tower staffers whose pensions he was entrusted to manage.

With only days before Arthur gets away with the perfect crime, Josh’s crew turns to petty crook Slide (Eddie Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible—steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo. Though amateurs, these rookie thieves know the building better than anyone. And it turns out they’ve been casing the place for years, they just didn’t know it.”
