After ducking out of Sundance film festival a bit early this year, one of the premieres I missed was Flypaper. The robber comedy is from The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore and director Rob Minkoff (The Forbidden Kingdom, The Lion King, Stuart Little). I didn’t hear the greatest things about it, but the trailer below seems fun enough. As for the film, I’ve heard complaints that is scattered and lacking any sort of charm or pop. Thankfully, IFC is releasing this one on VOD first so we have some fair warning. The film stars Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd, Tim Blake Nelson, Mekhi Phifer, Matt Ryan and you can see the trailer below via Yahoo.
Tripp Kennedy ambles into a bank near closting time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot-out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, beautiful teller, Kaitlin to protect her. When the bank’s security system locks down the building and seals everyong inside, the night evolves into a hilarious game of cat and mouse. As Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day and escape being killed, they might also need to avoid falling in love…
Flypaper hits theaters August 19th, after going on demand on July 15th.
What do you think about the first trailer for Flypaper? Do you like seeing Dempsey in a role like this?
