With scene stealing turns in Pitch Perfect and the two Hunger Games flicks, plus a lead in the upcoming Lego Movie, Elizabeth Banks has been having a stellar run as of late. But now it’s apparently time to take a walk. A Walk of Shame, that is. And yes, I immediately regret that lame joke. Which I hope is how whomever cut this trailer for the upcoming comedy feels. Banks appears to be as funny and charming as ever, but the slightly off-kilter pacing and music here isn’t doing her any favours. Still, this seems like it could be worth a watch.
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.
Walk of Shame also stars James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, and Kevin Nealon, and will be running surprisingly fast into cinemas on April 25. 2014.
