The first trailer for Steven Brill’s “Walk of Shame” finds “The Hunger Games” star Elizabeth Banks trying to survive the day after a hook-up with “X-Men’s” James Marsden. Though really, you’d be hardpressed to recognize Banks from the “Hunger Games” franchise, since she’s actually, you know, incredibly attractive sans all that ridiculous make-up they have her wearing in those movies.
The film looks like it has some potential, and I wonder if we’re getting a Red Band trailer for this sometime soon. The film is rated R, so I imagine there’s plenty of cussing and raunchy shenanigans being saved up.
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.
Starring Elizabeth Banks, James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Ethan Suplee, Sarah Wright, Oliver Hudson, and P.J. Byrne.
Walking off the shame this April 25th.
