In case you missed the Trump International New York Hotel & Tower’s starring role in the action comedy Tower Heist (and regret it), you’ve got another chance. The caper movie Rotten Tomatoes called “fun fluff” goes on sale on Blu-Ray and DVD on February 21st.
Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Tea Leoni, Casey Affleck and Alan Alda co-star with the hotel,which is cast as a super-luxe condo packed with wealthy New Yorkers. Not much of an acting stretch for the Trump, in other words, but the hotel plays its part convincingly, even if all that’s seen is the gleaming black and gold exterior as well as the loading dock, garage and residential lobby at 1 Central Park West. (Sorry, no guest rooms.)
To celebrate, the hotel has teamed with magazine publisher American Media to offer the Tower Heist Great Escape Sweepstakes. Grand prize is a two-night stay in a Trump International suite along with domestic air-fare to New York for two, a Blu-Ray player and the Tower Heist Blu-Ray disk. To enter, click onto OKMagazine.com, RadarOnline, FitPregnanry.com, Shape.com or MensFitness.com through March 4.
If you win (or wind up with the DVD), watch for Nina Arianda, the sassy blonde law student (and current star of Broadway’s Venus in Fur). With apologies to the hotel, she’s the best thing in the movie.
