Kristen Wiig and Annette Bening star in the Girl Most Likely trailer
If you’re wondering why the comedy GIRL MOST LIKELY doesn’t ring any bells, it’s because it was called IMOGENE for the longest time. Sound familiar? It was the movie Kristen Wiig signed on to right after BRIDESMAIDS blew up. Anyway, the first trailer for the film is out and it actually looks pretty fun. Kristen Wiig has a monopoly on that normal-girl-with-crazy-friends schtick, but it really works for her and GIRL MOST LIKELY looks like another success.
GIRL MOST LIKELY stars Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, Darren Criss, Natasha Lyonne, Christopher Fitzgerald and Michelle Hurd. The Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini directed film opens in theaters on July 19th.
GIRL MOST LIKELY official synopsis: Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she’s put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so- called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.
