Watch: Zach Galifianakis Plans a Heist in First 'Masterminds' Trailer

March 30, 2015


"Brace your boobies." There's plenty of slick heists, from Ocean's Eleven to Inside Man, but the story at the heart of Masterminds doesn't seem to be one of them. In the action comedy from Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), a robbery is planned by a ragtag team of dimwits including Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson, and somehow they get away with it. But that's just where the chaos seems to begin. It's hard to tell what's going on in this chaotic teaser trailer for the comedy, but Jason Sudeikis already seems like he will be the high point of this flick, with the low point being that terrible wig Galifianakis is wearing.

Here's the first teaser trailer (+ poster) for Jared Hess' Masterminds, direct from YouTube:



Masterminds is directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite, Gentlemen Broncos, Nacho Libre) and written by Danny McBride & Jody Hill ("Eastbound & Down") and Chris Bowman & Hubbel Palmer ("Napoleon Dynamite" animated series). David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis), along with  his flirtatious co-worker (Kristen Wiig) and a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson), somehow pull of a $17 million heist. The only problem is he foolishly hands the money over to this wild group of double crossers and has been set up to take the fall. But now it's time to turn the tables again. Jason Sudeikis also stars in the comedy which Relativity Studios will release this summer on August 7th.

Has Jared Jess allowed swearing yet, or is that still a no-no?
