Watch: Elizabeth Banks Has Hellish One Night Stand in 'Walk of Shame'
While Elizabeth Banks has mostly been relegated to meaty supporting roles in films like People Like Us, The Hunger Games, The Next Three Days and Role Models, this time she's taking the lead on the comedy Walk of Shame. It's a classic race against time as Banks plays a local news reporter who has the sudden opportunity to become a network news anchor. The only problem is after her car is towed following a one night stand (with James Marsden), she has no phone, ID or money, and finds herself stranded and desperate to make it to the interview. This trailer reminds me of that movie Trojan War from 1997 with "Boy Meets World" star Will Friedle looking everywhere for a condom. And that's not a compliment. Watch!
Here's the first trailer for Steven Brill's Walk of Shame, originally from Yahoo:
Walk of Shame is written and directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, Drillbit Taylor, Without a Paddle). Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games franchise, Pitch Perfect) stars as an aspiring reporter whose dreams of becoming a network news anchor are compromised after a one-night stand with a handsome stranger (James Marsden) leaves her stranded in downtown Los Angeles without a phone, car, ID or money – and only 8 hours to make it to the most important job interview of her life. Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, Bill Burr and Tig Notaro also star in the film which Focus World releases late this spring April 25th. Funny?
