‘Walk of Shame’ Trailer (Video) Starring Elizabeth Banks

January 16, 2014

The first trailer for ‘Walk of Shame’ has made its debut online. The highly anticipated comedy stars Elizabeth Banks of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ as an L.A. TV news anchor in a predicament that takes the entire course of the movie to resolve, to frenetic and hilarious ends.

The movie was written and directed by Steven Brill. This first full-length trailer reveals much about the movie while still drawing us in. We know the initial premise from the synopsis. Elizabeth Banks portrays the news anchor Meghan Miles. She goes out drinking with friends, winds up in a one-night stand with a stranger portrayed by James Marsden. She finds out the next morning that she has got the interview for the job of her dreams, a network TV anchor and all she has to do is show up at 5 p.m.

Piece of cake in normal circumstances, as all she would have to manage might be her nerves. But she is left still sexily clad in a tight, super short yellow mini-dress. She is way across town in L.A. with no cell phone, no wallet, no money and no car.

Hence the literal walk of shame. We watch her try to navigate under those circumstances as she encounters police officers who think she’s a prostitute out soliciting, a child reluctant to lend her his bike, and many other scenarios that just go to show how much we rely on being able to identify ourselves, call or text someone, or plunk down a credit card or some cash. Suddenly getting across Los Angeles might as well be trying to get across the desert on foot with no water.

It takes a simple premise, which is, let’s face it, an anxiety-provoking one, and at least in the trailer it makes for compelling, edge-of-the-seat viewing.

The movie opens in theaters on April 25, 2014. The supporting cast includes Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, Kevin Nealon, Bill Burr, Vic Chao, Larry Gilliard, Jr., Ken Davitian, P. J. Byrne as Moshe, Alphonso McAuley, Tig Notaro and others.
