Delivering pizzas is a dangerous business. Just ask Jesse Eisenberg’s Nick, who gets jumped by a couple of dorks in monkey masks then forced to rob a bank. Yeah, it’s that kind of a day. Check out the Red Band Trailer for Ruben Fleischer’s “30 Minutes or Less”, his follow-up to “Zombieland”, which also stars Eisenberg. Kinda amusing, but it doesn’t look like a gut-buster, though.
30 Minutes or Less tells the story of Nick (Jesse Eisenberg), a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.
Also co-starring Bianca Kajlich, Michael Peña, Fred Ward, Johnny Yong Bosch, and Dilshad Vadsaria.
