Eva Mendes has a bad habit of choosing some really lousy projects, but she definitely has both talent and range. She's managed to take on both dramatic and comedic roles and play them well, be it in Adam McKay's The Other Guys or Werner Herzog's Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (which admittedly has some comedic elements, but is largely a drama). Now she's about to come out with a new film, Girl in Progress, that will stretch both muscles and today we have the first trailer.

Check out the preview below and in HD over on Yahoo!

Directed by Patricia Riggen, Girl in Progress also stars Matthew Modine, Cierra Ramirez, Patricia Arquette and Eugenio Derbez. The story, written by Hiram Martinez, is about a girl neglected by her mother. After learning about coming-of-age stories in school, she begins to look for ways that she can become an adult and claim independence. The film will arrive in theaters on April 27th.
