Two days ago, Moviefone premiered the vertigo-inducing poster for 'Man on a Ledge.' Now that image comes to life in the first trailer for the Asger Leth-directed movie. While you may not have heard of Leth, this movie has no shortage of recognizable actors -- Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Ed Harris and Edward Burns among others.

'Man on a Ledge' follows escaped convict Nick Cassidy (Worthington) and his brother Joey (Jamie Bell). In order to pull off the biggest diamond heist in history, Nick distracts all the cops in the city by standing on the ledge of a tall building.

Is it just us or does this movie look very similar to 'The Negotiator' starring Samuel L. Jackson and Kevin Spacey? Check out the trailer below and judge for yourself.
