"You don't need to be a criminal mastermind to pull off one of the largest cash heists on American soil!" If you were watching the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber last night, then you saw the trailer premiere for the new comedy Masterminds. On behalf of Relativity Studios, we are now pleased to share that trailer along with the poster, before Masterminds opens in theaters nationwide on August 7th, 2015! The new action comedy was directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite), and boasts an all-star cast including Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig and JJason Sudeikis.
Based on true events, David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) discovers the true meaning of adventure far beyond his wildest dreams. He is an uncomplicated man stuck in a monotonous life. Day in and day out he drives an armored vehicle, transporting millions of other people's money with no escape in sight. The only glimmer of excitement is his flirtatious work crush Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig) who soon lures him into the scheme of a lifetime.
Along with a group of half-brained criminals led by Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson) and an absurdly faulted heist plan, David manages the impossible and makes off with $17 million in cash...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. With the bandits blowing the millions on lavish and ridiculous luxuries, they leave behind a glaring trail of evidence. Now on the lam and in over his head, David must dodge the authorities, evade a hilarious hit man, Mike McKinney (Jason Sudeikis), and try to turn the tables on the ones he trusted most. Check out the first footage before the comedy hits this summer:
