We’ve got our hands on a batch of pictures of Lay The Favorite, the upcoming comedy movie directed by Stephen Frears and starring Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis and Catherine Zeta-Jones:
“Beth Raymer (Rebecca Hall) 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 (Bruce Willis), 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 (Catherine Zeta-Jones), 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.”
Rebecca Hall or Catherine Zeta-Jones: who’s prettier?
There’s no official release date yet. But the film will premiere at the Sundance Film Festival.
