New Trailer For Zach Galifianakis' Masterminds
‘That bullet just grazed my biscuits…’
Masterminds’ pairing of Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig sounds seriously auspicious. The queen of Bridesmaids and the king of The Hangover teaming up for comedic mayhem and a scene in which one loses their shit on heavy tranquillisers? Count us in. The movie’s new trailer offers a taste of what to expect when these two titans collide.
Galifianakis play dozy security truck driver David Ghantt who falls under the not-exactly-Voldemortish spell of Wiig’s flirty colleague, Kelly. She and her dubious pal Steve (Owen Wilson) persuade him to pull a heist on his own employers, preparing for him to fail horribly in the process. When he unexpectedly pulls off the job, it turns out to be the biggest bank robbery in US history. (Presumably excluding the whole subprime thing.)
Unsurprisingly, this hapless Bonnie and Clyde soon have the feds breathing down their necks as Steve starts splurging their newfound wealth around.
This one promises to mix slapstick with road trip caper, with Galifianakis getting his full redneck and Wiig providing bonus silliness. Masterminds gets its UK release on August 7.
