Elizabeth Banks is one of those exceptionally talented American actresses who remains criminally underutilized by the Hollywood industry. Having made her debut in the 1998 indie flick, ‘Surrender Dorothy’, Banks went on to become a highly prolific actress but she has been sidelined for a vast majority of her movies. Some of her best performances have come in supporting roles in the midst of great ensemble casts and that tells a lot about her strength as an actress. Many of Elizabeth Banks’ movies have been dramas, rom-coms or biopics and she is known to have worked in a wide range of genres and succeeding in most of them. So with all that said now, let’s take a look at the list of top 12 Elizabeth Banks movies.
10. Pitch Perfect 2 (2015)
As an “Elizabeth Banks movie”, this one surely qualifies. Maybe not for the acting but certainly for the directing. Banks reprises her role as Gail Abernathy McKadden, the a capella competition commentator. She has a more significant part to play here than in the original but to be honest, this is more of a display of her directorial skills than anything else. While the film is certainly not on the level of its highly entertaining and charming original, it still has its moments and Banks, despite a few hiccups, manages to find the right tone and shows great promise as a director.
9. Definitely, Maybe (2008)
