Lay The Favourite

Lay The Favourite

Bruce Willis may be about to kick some ass in The Expendables 2 and Looper but he is also set to turn his hand to comedy with another movie project Lay The Favourite.

The movie sees him take on the role of gambler Dink alongside an all star cast that includes Rebecca Hall and Catherine Zeta Jones.

And we have the new trailer for the movie for you to take a look at:

Lay The Favourite marks the return to the director's chair for filmmaker Stephen Frears, in what is his first movie since Tamara Drewe.

In the sports gambling Mecca of Las Vegas, an exuberant ex-private dancer Beth (Rebecca Hall) arrives in search of her ultimate dream - to become a cocktail waitress. 

Fate leads her to Dink (Bruce Willis), a charming, old-school gambler who seeing beyond the ditzy façade, takes a shine to Beth, recruiting her as his good luck charm, a sharp contrast to his jinx - wife Tulip!

But as luck would have it, the odds are not in Dink’s favour. As he enters a losing streak and Beth’s crush on him becomes all too apparent, he is forced to fire her.

Devastated and heart-broken, she flees to New York to the ever dependable Jeremy (Joshua Jackson), working for flamboyant and illegal bookie Rosie (Vince Vaughn) who takes her to the Caribbean island of Curacao to oversee his expanding empire.

With Rosie and his operations becoming ever more out of control, Beth becomes increasingly conscious of how precarious her situation is and hesitantly enlists the help of Dink and Tulip. 

The stakes are high and as the friends converge, they must figure out a way to divert the potentially dangerous situation that lies ahead for all of them. Every decision counts.

Lay The Favourite is released 22nd June
