Universal has released six bland character posters for Brett Ratner’s Tower Heist. Each poster features a main character standing on top of a building, we get the actor’s name and their character’s profession, and I guess this sells a movie. I suppose having an adorable dog on Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy’s posters doesn’t hurt.
Hit the jump to check out the posters. The film also stars Tea Leoni, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, and Gabourey Sidibe. Tower Heist opens November 4th.
Posters via IMP Awards.
Here’s the official synopsis for Tower Heist:
Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy lead an all-star cast in Tower Heist, a comedy caper about working stiffs who seek revenge on the Wall Street swindler who stiffed them. After the workers at a luxury Central Park condominium discover the penthouse billionaire has stolen their retirement, they plot the ultimate revenge: a heist to reclaim what he took from them. Queens native Josh Kovacs (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 two 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 (Murphy) to plan the nearly impossible…to steal what they are sure is hidden in Arthur’s guarded condo. Though amateurs, these rookie thieves know the building better than anyone. Turns out they’ve been casing the place for years, they just didn’t know it.
