Amy Schumer And Bill Hader Star As The Unlikely Couple In New Screens For Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck

30 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Monogamy is not realistic. It’s an all-too-pessimistic outlook that has been drilled into Amy Schumer’s leading lady for as long as she can remember, and one that will underpin Judd Apatow’s upcoming rom-com, Trainwreck.

As a career-driven woman living in The Big Apple, Schumer’s Amy remains disinterested – if aloof – to any romantic commitment for fear it would tie her down and ruin her happiness. However, after agreeing to spearhead a feature on a delightfully charming sports doctor (Bill Hader), our protagonist soon finds that her once-ironclad perspective isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, even if she refuses to admit it at first.

Though it won’t win any awards for breaking new ground in the genre, the fact that Apatow has assembled a stellar cast around the leading pair, including the likes of Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda Swinton, »

Over 25 New Trainwreck Pictures Featuring LeBron James, Tilda Swinton and More

29 June 2015 6:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Trainwreck debuted as a work-in-progress at SXSW back in March, but hopefully Judd Apatow hasn't changed much since because the cut screened there was fantastic. Amy Schumer wrote the script and also stars as Amy, a young professional living in New York City who firmly believes that monogamy isn’t realistic. However, that changes when she starts to fall for the subject that she's writing a magazine article about - the super sweet and successful sports doctor Aaron Conners (Bill Hader). With the film's July 17th nationwide release fast approaching, Universal just unveiled a whole batch of hi-res Trainwreck pictures featuring Schumer and Hader as well as co-stars Brie Larson, John Cena, Tilda SwintonLeBron James and Vanessa Bayer. You can see them all for yourself below and, in case you missed it, click here to check out my Trainwreck review from SXSW.

Five "Must-See" Movies for July 2015

29 June 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Normally, I'm not one to brag, but I would like to say right off the bat, I think I did pretty well with my must-see list last month. Of my five official picks -- Spy, Jurassic World, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl, Dope and Inside Out -- the closest I got to suggesting you see a movie people generally didn't like was Jurassic World, which has broken all sorts of box office records and sits at a "fresh" 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not that box office results or Rotten Tomatoes are the ultimate barometers of quality, but I have to base this off something, rightc Personally I didn't much care for the new Jurassic film aside from a few scenes of enormous spectacle, but others found plenty to like in it. I also ended up seeing Dope twice -- that one might be my favorite movie so far this »

New international trailer for Judd Apatow’s Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer

24 June 2015 6:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first international trailer has arrived online for Judd Apatow’s latest comedy Trainwreck starring Amy Schumer. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s head by her rascal of a dad that monogamy isn’t realistic. Now a magazine writer, Amy lives by that credo – enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment – but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners, Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something. 

Set for release July 17th in the States and August 28th in the UK, Trainwreck features a cast that also »

Amy Schumer Is A Wild Child In New Trainwreck Trailer

23 June 2015 10:24 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three seasons of Comedy Central’s Inside Amy Schumer have shown us that Amy Schumer is no one-hit-wonder. With her hilarious sketches and irrepressibly edgy style of humor, she’s cemented her grip on the small screen – and now, this summer, she’ll bring her shtick to theaters with the hilarious-looking Trainwreck.

A new trailer for the Judd Apatow-directed comedy has hit the web today and it’s as gut-bustingly funny as you’d expect. Schumer is a rare comedian in that she’s demonstrably fearless in her tackling of modern romance, sexuality, body image, societal double standards and systematically imposed misogyny. Unafraid to take on big targets (and simultaneously skewer herself), she has proven herself to be one of the most unrepentantly honest voices in comedy today. From the looks of Trainwreck, for which Schumer also wrote the script, it doesn’t appear that a shred of that »

Cinema Italiano: 2015 Venice Film Festival Predictions

15 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Now that we’ve come out of the Cannes ether, we can examine several of the names glaringly absent from the lineup that may potentially premiere on the Lido this fall. With controversial moves finding Garrel, Gomes, and Desplechin playing the Quinzaine, while Naomi Kawase and Apichatpong Weerasethakul got slotted in Un Certain Regard, we’re aggravated and pleased about some of this shifting around, but all in all, the main competition this year didn’t end up feeling like many programming risks were taken.

First off, to the general surprise of all, German director Maren Ade and British director Terence Davies were absent from the line-up, both with new highly anticipated titles (Toni Erdmann and Sunset Song respectively). Thierry Fremaux, arguably, tried to mix things up a bit with the Main Competition this year, inviting two female directors (Sacre Bleu!), including Valerie Donzelli and repeat offender Maiwenn (both titles »
