Sony has released the first images and synopses for 30 Minutes or Less and Anonymous. 30 Minutes or Less is an action-comedy directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) and stars Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride, Nick Swardson, and Aziz Ansari. Anonymous is the new film from 2012 director Roland Emmerich and is noteworthy in that the plot won’t feature the destruction of famous landmarks. The film is based on speculation that William Shakespeare did not write his own plays.
Sony has also released the synopsis plus a new image for the Cameron Diaz comedy Bad Teacher which also stars Justin Timberlake, Lucy Punch, and Jason Segel. Hit the jump to check out the images and synopses for all three films.
BAD TEACHER (Opens June 17th)
Some teachers just don’t give an F. For example, there’s Elizabeth (Cameron Diaz). She’s foul-mouthed, ruthless, and inappropriate. She drinks, she gets high, and she can’t wait to marry her meal ticket and get out of her bogus day job. When she’s dumped by her fiancé, she sets her plan in motion to win over a rich, handsome substitute (Justin Timberlake) – competing for his affections with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch). When Elizabeth also finds herself fighting off the advances of a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel), the consequences of her wild and outrageous schemes give her students, her coworkers, and even herself an education like no other.
30 MINUTES OR LESS (Opens August 12th)
In the action-comedy 30 Minutes or Less, Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is 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.
ANONYMOUS (Opens September 30th)
Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage.
