Judd Apatow rarely directs something that he hasn’t written. So for him to helm a romantic comedy written by Comedy Central series star Amy Schumer tells us a lot about the comedian and her skills as a writer.
The first trailers for Trainwreck have finally gone online. In the film, Schumer plays a young journalists who has been told that there is no such thing as monogamy her whole life by her father. Living by that philosophy, she is doing pretty well for herself, that is until her next interview (played by Bill Hader) proves to turn everything she has come to know about commitment upside down.
Hit the jump to see the first trailers for Trainwreck, available in both green and red band (NSFW) versions.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Since she was a little girl, it’s been drilled into Amy’s (Schumer) head by her rascal of a dad (Colin Quinn) 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 (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.
There is a lot to like about this trailer. Shumer and Hader’s chemistry looks fantastic, and then there’s LeBron James who plays Hader’s friend and the tough athlete on the court who has a soft spot for things like Downton Abbey. I especially loved the confused reaction when Hader calls Schumer, and she and co-star Vanessa Bayer don’t know what to do because they’ve never come across a man like him before.
So if Schumer, Hader, Bayer, and James weren’t enough to get you interested in the film, then the supporting cast should. Trainwreck also stars Brie Larson, John Cena, Mike Biriglia, Ezra Miller, Marisa Tomei, Daniel Radcliffe, Barkhad Abdi, Jon Glaser, and Randall Park. Oh, Tilda Swinton is in this too!
