Over the course of her career, actress Elizabeth Banks has garnered critical and commercial acclaim for her roles in movies such as Wet Hot American Summer, Slither, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Our Idiot Brother, as well as tv shows such as Scrubs and 30 Rock. Fans of Banks were thus interested to learn that she had signed on to the leading role in a new project. Titled Walk of Shame, the film is written and directed by Steven Brill, and Banks stars in the feature alongside James Marsden, Gillian Jacobs, Sarah Wright, Ethan Suplee, Bill Burr, and Kevin Nealon. A new red-band trailer for the movie has now been released, and can be seen below.

Everyone knows the walk of shame, but it’s safe to say that most are not nearly as painful and comical as Elizabeth Banks’s in the new trailer for her upcoming comedy Walk of Shame. With the film’s early May release date right around the corner, Focus Features is upping its marketing campaign with a new red band trailer.
I wasn’t too impressed by the tamer trailer that dropped back in January, and though this new preview is certainly raunchier, it still doesn’t have me convinced that Walk of Shame will be anything special, despite its exceptional cast.
Check it out below:
Other than Banks running around in a tight yellow dress, there’s not much going for Walk of Shame so far as I can see. The jokes on display just aren’t that funny, and the most talented individuals in the cast (including Community »

Before Kevin Smith made his breakthrough into the film industry with his debut film “Clerks,” he was what some people would call a “slacker” from New Jersey. When that slacker took a brief detour to the Vancouver Film School back in 1992, he met his future long-time collaborator Scott Mosier, who would go on to produce every one of Smith’s films from “Clerks” to “Zack and Miri Make a Porno.” While Kevin Smith was only at the Vancouver Film School for a few months, he did manage to make a short documentary with Mosier called “Mae Day - The Crumbling of a Documentary.” The ten-minute film explores Smith and Mosier’s failure to go through with a documentary about a local transsexual named Emelda Mae. Smith and Mosier narrate the film with their faces only appearing as silhouettes. Their tone, which is fairly sardonic, is quite different from their classmates »

It's February 14, so what better time than now to snuggle up with your significant other for a special Valentine's Day movie weekend.
With The Lego Movie heading into UK cinemas this weekend (a smart bit of Valentine's Day counter-programming but a film you really need to see) we asked its star Elizabeth Banks to recommend us some romantic movies.
Throw this trio into your DVD player this weekend then head out to catch the rather excellent brick flick...
Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)
There are some great comedies in Elizabeth's back catalogue (40-Year-Old Virgin, Pitch Perfect), but one she'd really like to see get a bit more love is Zack and Miri Make a Porno, the 2008 film she made with Kevin Smith and Seth Rogen.
"It's a really romantic movie, people don't realise," she said. "It also happens to have a lot of boobs in it - never a bad thing. »
Most of you may remember Tyler Labine from his drunken interruption at the coffee shop in Kevin Smith's Zack And Miri Make A Porno and he's continuing to cause mischief to this day, especially in the new indie comedy Someone Marry Barry. Today, we have an exclusive clip that has Labine getting caught "in the act" when his surprised best friend comes home to find a very unwelcome surprise. It's a pretty funny clip and the set-up is all there from the »

Every adventurous college student is familiar with the walk of shame, to the point where stumbling back to one’s dorm in disheveled clothing after a night on the town is considered a rite of passage by many. However, most one night stands don’t result in as much trouble as Elizabeth Banks’s does, in the appropriately titled Walk of Shame.
The first trailer for the film, which you can check out below, was released today and it gives us a peek at her truly disastrous morning after:
Banks plays aspiring reporter Meghan Miles (Banks), who encounters many obstacles as she attempts to make the trek from the home of a random hook-up (James Marsden) through downtown L.A. to get to the most important job interview of her career.
It’s nice to see Banks taking on a leading role for the first time in what feels like a long while. »
