Brett Ratner deserves kudos for getting together a diverse cast that boasts Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Michael Peña, Tea Leoni, Garbourey Sidibe and Alan Alda playing against type as the crooked millionaire who invests his clients' money in a Ponzi scheme and becomes the target of a, you guessed it, tower heist.
As Slide, the not-so-criminal mastermind tasked to lead the motley crew of wannabe thieves, Murphy is back on the big screen in his first non-family movie since 2006's Dreamgirls and he plays a cool foil to Stiller's all-nerves leader Josh, who vows to get their money back from greedy Arthur Shaw.
With Ratner, the man who brought you Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand and Red Dragon, behind the camera you know you're in for an entertaining revenge story that's full of outrageous characters.

Don't let the thought that 2011 is drawing to a close depress you as there's still lots of in-theatre entertainment to enjoy before we ring in the new year. From the crazy hijinx of the lovable Muppets to the on-going (and epic) love story of Edward and Bella, there's a little something for everyone in the coming month. If that's not enough to pique your interest, how about a drama with a little someone named George Clooney or a trip down memory lane with a certain fedora-clad archeologist? And with award season just around the corner, November's also your chance to check out some soon to be Oscar front-runners (we're looking at you, Michelle Williams).
Check out the new preview of the month and let us know what you're excited to see!
As a movie audience we know what we're seeing isn't real, that the actor is paid to pretend to be someone else and the set-up is false from the start because the situations are dramatized if not completely fabricated. Tell that to Drake Doremus, whose sparse, stark, lived-in film is a testament to truth and trades in fantasy for something closer to life while doing away with the idea of romance as the ultimate saviour.
Starring Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones as Jacob and Anna, the central couple whom the audience follows from their first kiss to their first fight while witnessing all of their intimate, quiet, dramatic moments in between, Like Crazy is affecting and sometimes painful to watch, as if our voyeurism has gone too far. It's also a movie that gets to the heart of matters of the heart with an unhurried pace as it tracks the rise and fall of that universal, all and sundry first love.
We sat down with Yelchin, and a table full of reporters, when the film screened at the Toronto International Film Festival and talked about what it took to become Jacob, why making the movie was liberating and why this love story is about much more than sex.
While before our sweetly daft slackers were concerned only with chowing down on a few sliders at White Castle, things took a turn when they were the victims of racial profiling while trying to get to Amsterdam. But that was six years ago and now Harold is a successful Wall Street suit with a wife and beautiful home and Kumar...hasn't stopped hitting the bong.
Celebrating the high holidays early, Harold and Kumar are back on the big screen for another round of humiliating misunderstandings, weed-fueled mishaps and maybe even a little bromance.
We recently sat down with series stars John Cho and Kal Penn and in between fits of laughter chatted about accidentally shooting Santa and if Harold and Kumar is really a love story.

Nothing gets tongues wagging like a celebrity sex scandal or the dissolution of a marriage between two people we thought were gonna make it - Zooey and Ben, duh - or a child borne from a wild night between the sheets.
Of course how that rather personal information gets to the masses is rarely confirmed so unequivocally by said unexpectant father, but Hugh Grant and his people didn't let the rumourmill take a hold of this one, releasing a statement confirming that the About a Boy star is now a proud father to a baby girl with an as-yet-unidentified woman.
What we do know, though, is plenty thanks to a statement release by Grant's rep: "He and the mother had a fleeting affair and while this was not planned, Hugh could not be happier or more supportive. He and the mother have discussed everything and are on very friendly terms."
Talk about your full disclosure.
You won't hear a Bah Humbug escape from our lips as the comforting glow of the big screen provides a blessed, temporary antidote to that annual bummer state known as seasonal affective disorder. With everything from the return of beloved warm-and-Fozzie characters - wakka wakka! - (The Muppets) to biopics (J. Edgar, My Week with Marilyn), animated fare (Happy Feet 2, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Arthur Christmas) and edgier, drastically un-holiday-like dramas (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), the upcoming wintry temperatures will barely be noticed as we take in one anticipated movie after another.
We've made a list and checked it - as least twice - for the must-see holiday movies starting off with a bong, ahem bang, thanks to A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas.

Screen spy James Bond is returning next year with a new movie called Skyfall and a star-studded cast, producers said Thursday.
Daniel Craig returns as the suave secret agent for a third time in the film, to be directed by Academy Award-winner Sam Mendes (Revolutionary Road, American Beauty).
Spanish star Javier Bardem, who picked up an Oscar for his turn as a stoic psychopath in No Country for Old Men, will also join the cast for 007's 23rd screen adventure as Bond's foe, producers said.
"There's lots of surprises," Mendes told reporters, as he confirmed filming will begin Thursday and will take place in London's Whitehall, and on location in Scotland, Istanbul and Shanghai.
