Elizabeth Banks narrates the “Man On a Ledge” trailer – MUST SEE


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: More studios (and their marketing departments) need to try this: Elizabeth Banks, clever and beautiful star of this weekend’s “Man On a Ledge,” watches the film’s trailer and gives a running commentary.

Brilliant.

Banks doesn’t get into too many details. And if anything, I think she holds back on really unleashing her hilarious opinions. If you’ve seen Banks on “30 Rock” or “Scrubs,” you know she can be fall-down funny.

And right around the 1:45 mark, when she starts talking about how badly she still wants to “tap” her handsome co-star Ed Harris, you start to think that Banks is going to rev up and get really funny. Too bad the clip is so short.

We can only hope the DVD comes with a feature-length Banks commentary.

Until then, here’s Banks commenting on her new film, “Man On a Ledge,” while watching the trailer. It sounds so simple. And yet, it’s so clever. The movie stars Sam Worthington, Jamie Bell, Ed Harris, Elizabeth Banks and Ed Burns in the story of an ex-cop who plans a heist so he can prove to the world that he’s innocent of a serious crime. It opens everywhere on Friday, Jan. 27.
