A Big Madoff-Inspired Blockbuster Is Finally Making It To theatres -- Here's The Trailer (VIDEO)

The trailer for Brett Ratner‘s “Tower Heist,” about a group of burned investors striking back, just hit the Internet.

Ben Stiller stars as the leader of an apartment building staff conspiring to rob a Bernie Madoff-like resident (Alan Alda) who’s just wiped out their pensions with a scheme.

Eddie Murphy is called in to help stage the robbery.

Imagine and Universal are betting that come November, the story will still resonate with moviegoers — and considering the state of the economy, it probably will.

(Though that doesn’t mean we’ll necessarily ever get to see the rest of the Madoff movies supposedly in production.)
