One of the upcoming comedies that looks like a keeper is Brittany Runs A Marathon, as the trailer is downright funny (especially if you love dry humor). Brittany Folger (Rough Night’s Jillian Bell) is a hard partying New Yorker who is advised by a doctor to get healthy.
Toxic relationships, fast food consumption, and her love for Adderall probably is proof that the doctor’s advice is on point, so Brittany attempts to join a gym.
But why pay the exorbitant fees that a gym has to offer? Instead, Brittany starts running to start up a little sweat, and before one knows it she is aiming to complete the New York City marathon. Co-starring Utkarsh Ambudkar, Michaela Watkins and Lil Rel Howery, the picture could signal a possible breakthrough performance from Bell.
The feature marks the directing debut from award winning playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo. Check out the trailer and tell us what you think!
Brittany Runs a Marathon hits theaters August 23.
