4 Elizabeth Banks Movies We Love, Plus ‘Walk Of Shame’ Opens This Weekend

Before Elizabeth Banks darted across town in a yellow dress and boop-booped her way into our hearts in Walk of Shame, we saw her in the following films: Daltry Calhoun (watch on YouTube); Definitely, Maybe, with a soundtrack scored by Clint Mansell (watch on HitBliss); People Like Us, scored by A.R. Rahman (watch on Google Play); and The Uninvited (watch on HitBliss), scored by Christopher Young.  Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the soundtracks to these films, including the new Walk of Shame Various Artists soundtrack (download the album on iTunes).  Walk of Shame opens in theaters on Friday, but you can also catch the movie on demand via the movie’s Virtual Premiere.

If you’re looking for the one go-to soundtrack of the summer, then the Walk of Shame is a safe bet.  The album is packed with solid, danceable tracks and catchy remixes of perennial favorites, “Walking In L.A.” (Motels remix by Scott Park and Corky James), and “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” (by Wang Chung).

Elizabeth Banks stars as May in Daltry Calhoun, a heartwarming story about a struggling golf club owner who meets his 14-year old daughter and learns to be a father for the first time.  Definitely, Maybe stars Ryan Reynolds (as politician Will Hayes), Elizabeth Banks and Abigail Breslin (“Perfect Sisters“). Banks plays Emily, one of Will Hayes’ college sweethearts in this tale about a politician who tries to explain his past to his daughter.

In People Like Us, Chris Pine is “Sam,” a salesman trying to settle his recently-deceased father’s estate, only to discover he has a long-lost sister, played by Elizabeth Banks.  The Uninvited is a gripping horror story about a girl (played by Emily Browning), who returns home to be greeted by her father’s new girlfriend, Rachel (played by Elizabeth Banks), and some ghosts in her home who appear to provide clues to suggest something sinister about her dad’s new love interest.
