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, »

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 Swinton, LeBron 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.

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 »

"Claire Denis is teaming with British writer Zadie Smith on her first English-language film, which is set in space," reports Screen's Andreas Wiseman. She'll also be working with Olafur Eliasson, astrophysicist Aurélien Barrau and, once again, with Stuart Staples of Tindersticks. Also in the works: Todd Solondz's Wiener-Dog, a sort-of sequel to Welcome to the Dollhouse, with Greta Gerwig, Julie Delpy, Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and Tracy Letts. William Friedkin will direct and executive produce a TV adaptation of his 1985 film To Live and Die in L.A. Miroslav Slaboshpitsky's followup to The Tribe, Luxembourg, gets funding. And more. » - David Hudson »
Todd Solondz has indeed assembled a thoroughly Solondz-esque cast for his next film "Wiener-Dog." As previously announced, Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig will lead an ensemble that now features Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and playwright Tracy Letts. The film tells several stories revolving around one particular dachshund who, according to Annapurna Pictures, "seems to be spreading comfort and joy." Let it be known that in Solondz's world grotesque yet lovable misanthropes, from "Happiness" to "Storytelling" and most recently "Dark Horse," all is never what it seems.

The film is a follow-up to Solondz’s 1996 drama “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” in which the main character, Dawn Wiener — played by Heather Matarazzo — was teased with the nickname “Wiener Dog.” The castings of Gerwig, who will be playing the adult version of Dawn Weiner, and Delpy had been previously announced.
Megan Ellison is producing through her Annapurna Pictures alongside Christine Vachon of Killer Films. David Distenfeld is the executive overseeing the project for Annapurna Pictures, and David Hinojosa is overseeing for Killer Films.

Indie filmmaker Todd Solondz loves to play within his own cinematic universe ala Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino. 2009’s “Life During Wartime” is a quasi sequel to 1998’s “Happiness” and 2004's "Palindromes" begins at the funeral for Dawn Wiener, the protagonist from his debut feature “Welcome to the Dollhouse.” Well, Solondz is either ignoring his own cannon or just changing history with “Wiener-Dog,” his upcoming Annapurna Pictures comedy. The movie stars Greta Gerwig as the aforementioned Dawn Wiener grown up and the comedy tells several stories featuring people who find their life inspired or changed by one particular dachshund, who seems to be spreading comfort and joy Principal photography has begun on “Wiener-Dog,” and Annapurna has revealed its cast which includes the previously in-talks Julie Delpy, plus Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and writer/actor Tracy Letts.

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 »

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 »

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 »
