Entertainment One have released the first and most probably only UK trailer for their new movie, Lay the Favourite via website handbag.com. The film has a great cast which includes Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis, Catherine Zeta Jones, Joshua Jackson and Vince Vaughn. It’s based on the true story about ex-private dancer Beth Raymer (Hall) as she travels to Las Vegas to pursue her dreams of becoming a cocktail waitress.
Director Stephen Frears (The Queen) helms Lay the Favourite (or Lay the Favorite if you want to spell in the US way!) is released in the UK 22nd June.
“Beth Raymer is a beautiful girl with a big heart who leaves her dancing job at a Florida strip club to become a Las Vegas cocktail waitress. Not exactly an ideal career choice, but her borderline-ditzy personality doesn’t give her many options. In walks Dink, a professional sports bettor who sees through her bubbly exterior and offers her a job placing wagers all over town to gain an advantage over the casinos. Her surprisingly impeccable mind for numbers soon cements her status as Dink’s good-luck charm, until his gorgeous-but-frigid wife, Tulip, starts to get jealous. Faced with no other choice but to fire Beth, Dink’s luck runs out when she heads to New York to work for a smarmy bookie, a turn of events that lands her squarely on the wrong side of the law.”
