30 Minutes or Less

Here are the relatively fresh (i.e. sort of new/kinda cool) posters for 30 Minutes or Less (via).

Intrigued? Want to know more but have very short attention span? Not to worry. Take it away, IMDb:

Two fledgling criminals kidnap a pizza delivery driver and force him to rob a bank within 30 minutes.

The fledgling criminals (Nick Swardson and Danny McBride) in the first poster there, decked out in chimpanzee and gorilla masks respectively and the pizza delivery driver and his friend (Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari) in the second one. The latter have gone for the more casual knitted balaclavas, ideal for that disheveled/warm look. Both looks have their pros and cons. Personally, I accessorise accordingly, although an ape mask usually fits any occasion and/or makes it more interesting.

I liked Zombieland and all this looks pretty good to me too. Check out the trailer below.

Hold on there IMDb , I thought you said

“… to rob a bank within 30 minutes.”

and now Jesse Eisenberg is saying that it’s

“… less than 9 hours to rob a bank.”

So let me get this straight:  is 30 minutes the time limit the fledgling criminals give the pizza delivery driver to do the crime or the time it takes them to force him to do it?  Is this happening within the less than 9 hours or are we on bonus time now? Grammar, you confuse me.  Either way, I’ll be very disappointed if there isn’t any time travel involved.

In related news, fledgling is my new favourite word.

"30 minutes or less? I'll give you 3 seconds."

    It turns out the IMDb storyline synopsis was edited, it now reads:

    “Two fledgling criminals (McBride and Swardson) kidnap a pizza delivery guy (Eisenberg), strap a bomb to his chest, and inform him that he has mere hours to rob a bank or else …”

    So it’s mere hours now? Does anyone really know how long he has? Does anyone even care? At least there’s no more ambiguity issues. Apart from the classic “or else…” of course, the most ambiguous phrase ever. Let’s just hope this doesn’t rule out time travel or else…
