Masterminds starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig

The first trailer for director Jared Hess‘s (Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre) heist comedy Masterminds has been released.

Zach Galifianakis stars as an armored truck driver stuck in a monotonous life, who is lured into stealing $17 million for two thieves (Owen Wilson and Ken Marino) who plan to make him a scapegoat. There will also be double crosses, a hit man (Jason Sudeikis), and comedy all around. The film is actually based on a true story of the 1997 Loomis Fargo heist where armored car driver and vault supervisor David Scott Ghantt stole $17.3 million and eight people were arrested and convicted of the crime. Kristen Wiig also stars. Hit the jump to check out the first trailer as well as a poster.

Here’s the official plot synopsis for Masterminds.

In this action comedy based on true events, directed by Jared Hess (Napoleon Dynamite; Nacho Libre), 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.

While the first trailer spoils the success of the heist, it seems the main focus of the film will be how to spend the money without anyone noticing. There are typical trailer moments that get some laughs, but there is such a large collection of comedic talent in one film, it’s quite possible that it could be one of the surprise hits of the summer.

Relativity plans to release Masterminds on August 7, 2015. Check out the first poster for the film below.
