‘Walk of Shame’ Trailer: Elizabeth Banks Can’t Catch a Break the Night After
After offering ace support in comedies like ‘Wet Hot American Summer’ and ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin,’ and after wearing the weirdest outfits in ‘The Hunger Games‘ films, it’s great to see Elizabeth Banks get a movie of her own. That film is ‘Walk of Shame‘ and now there’s a trailer.
And here she’s paired with James Marsden as the man she sleeps with only to bail early in the morning. Marsden’s also one of those utility players who always makes a film better, so it’s a great combination. Thow in cast members from ‘The Wire‘ (Lawrence Gilliard Jr.) and ‘Community‘ (Gillian Jacobs) and we’re sold, even if the high concept is a little thin (screenwriters have to work extra hard to get characters separated from their cell phones these days).
‘Walk of Shame opens April 25. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
After losing an audition for her dream job, an aspiring Los Angeles TV news anchor goes out for an uncharacteristic night of partying. She awakes in a stranger’s bed to a phone message from her agent telling her the job is hers, if she can make it across town by 5 pm. Stranded in an unknown area without money, a phone, and a car, she embarks on a series of misadventures as she races to the most important job interview of her life.
