Brittany Runs a Marathon trailer & poster released for global running day
Amazon Studios has released the official Brittany Runs a Marathon trailer for their upcoming comedy-drama about a woman living in New York who takes control of her life, one block at a time. Check out the trailer now in the player below and the full poster in the gallery!
Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend — except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment, and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.
Award-winning playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo makes his directorial debut with Brittany Runs a Marathon, an uproarious, irreverent and surprisingly emotional comedy inspired by real events. The irresistible cast, led by Jillian Bell and featuring Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Lil Rel Howery, and Micah Stock, lends heart and soul to this inspirational story of a party girl who finally finds real friends — and dignity — by taking control of her future, one city block at a time.
Brittany Runs a Marathon will arrive in theaters on August 23.
