30 Minutes Or Less


Ever since Ruben Fleischer’s stellar debut with Zombieland, I’ve been curious to see what movie he chooses to make as a follow-up to his hilarious zombie-blasting good time. Well, we’ve finally gotten a trailer for his next feature – a comedy starring Jesse Eisenberg but minus the zombies called 30 Minutes or Less about a pizza delivery guy named Nick who is strapped with a bomb by two criminals (played by Danny McBride and Nick Swardson) who then force him to rob a bank. Enlisting the help of his friend (Aziz Ansari), Nick has nine hours to pull off the robbery before the bomb explodes. I think this looks like a rambunctious good time, and I certainly hope that the post-Oscar-nomination curse doesn’t hit Eisenberg the way it hit Natalie Portman and James Franco when Your Highness tanked at the box office. Maybe Danny McBride is to blame here?

30 Minutes or Less comes out August 12, 2011.
