You may remember the 2011 film 30 Minutes or Less, starring Jesse Eisenberg as a hapless bank robber with dynamite strapped to his chest. The film, being a mainstream studio comedy, had some unfortunate parallels with the case of Brian Wells, who also robbed a bank with explosives on his person, with much less humorous results. Wells is the subject of Netflix’s upcoming four-part true crime documentary Evil Genius: The True Story of America’s Most Diabolical Bank Heist, a trailer for which is now online.
Evil Genius is coming to Netflix in just a few days, and it seems to have all the makings of another Netflix true crime smash hit, provided people don’t get over their sick fascinations with doomed criminals and grotesque tragedy in the next three days. Check out the trailer below:
