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.
More Than a Game Directed by Kristopher Belman
Lions Gate Home Entertainment
Release date: February 2, 2010
They may be the best high school basketball team ever. He may have had the best high school basketball player ever. Akron, Ohio’s St. Vincent-St. Mary won the proverbial basketball lottery when they got LeBron James and his boyhood friends to attend their school. From humble beginnings, future NBA superstar James, along with childhood friends Dru Joyce, Sian Cotton, and Willie McGee, all began a journey that would take them from local fame to national acclaim. The “fab four” were later joined by Romeo Travis in their sophomore year and the five fused their talents and, with the help of a dedicated coach, rewrote Ohio basketball history.
More Than a Game is a very well made documentary that keeps the viewer’s interest throughout with a sly use of visual effects, editing, and original music. Director Kristopher Belman was able to capture some amazingly candid footage by following the St. V basketball team during James’ senior season and with the aid of first-hand accounts by the players themselves, photographs, and home videos, the viewer follows these young men from middle school all the way up until the last days of high school and it’s a remarkable journey.
