Jillian Bell in the Brittany Runs a Marathon Trailer and Poster

-

Amazon Studios has revealed both the Brittany Runs a Marathon trailer and poster, which you can view below. Written and directed by acclaimed playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo, the film will open in theaters on August 23, 2019.

The Sundance Audience Award winner stars Jillian Bell, Michaela Watkins, Utkarsh Ambudkar, Lil Rel Howery, Micah Stock and Alice Lee. The producers are Matthew Plouffe and Tobey Maguire of Material Pictures and Margot Hand of Picture Films. The executive producers are Richard Weinberg, Jillian Bell and Paul Downs Colaizzo.


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, 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.
