A new U.S. trailer and some images have been made available for Stephen Frears’ Lay the Favorite.  While it’s a bit better than the previously released trailer for the film, the comedic beats still seem to be missing their marks.  The film stars Rebecca Hall (The Town) as Beth, a Florida stripper who leaves her job to become a Vegas cocktail waitress until professional sports gambler Dink (Bruce Willis) gives her a better option, placing wagers all over town in an attempt to beat the system.  The plot thickens (or falls apart completely) when Beth is fired, tries to find work with a New York bookie and lands herself in trouble with the law.

Lay the Favorite also stars Catherine Zeta-Jones, Vince Vaughn, Joshua Jackson and Laura Prepon and opens in theaters December 7th.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer and see some new images from the film. 

The new trailer for Lay the Favorite follows below (via The Playlist), along with the film’s synopsis and new images:

Here’s the synopsis for Lay the Favorite:

Beth Raymer is a beautiful girl with a big heart who leaves her dancing job at a Florida strip club to become a Las Vegas cocktail waitress. Not exactly an idealcareer choice, but her borderline-ditzy personality doesn’t give her many options. In walks Dink, a professional sports bettor who sees through her bubbly exterior and offers her a job placing wagers all over town to gain an advantage over the casinos. Her surprisingly impeccable mind for numbers soon cements her status as Dink’s good-luck charm, until his gorgeous-but-frigid wife, Tulip, starts to get jealous. Faced with no other choice but to fire Beth, Dink’s luck runs out when she heads to New York to work for a smarmy bookie, a turn of events that lands her squarely on the wrong side of the law.
