First Look at Amy Schumer and Bill Hader in Judd Apatow’s TRAINWRECK

     July 18, 2014


The first Trainwreck image from director Judd Apatow’s next feature has arrived.  Unlike his previous directorial efforts, Apatow didn’t write the script for Trainwreck—the film’s star, Amy Schumer did.  Schumer has gained notoriety for her hilarious and socially conscious sense of humor on her Comedy Central series Inside Amy Schumer, but Trainwreck puts her front and center as the star of a major studio film.  The story, which draws heavily from Schumer’s real-life experiences, revolves around “a commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways.”  Apatow tells the New York Times that when working on the screenplay, he pushed the comic to dig into her own vulnerabilities, “almost like a therapist thing.”  As if the promise of a Schumer-fronted comedy wasn’t enough, the versatile Bill Hader plays her character’s potential love interest in the film.  Very promising stuff.

Hit the jump to take a look at the first Trainwreck image, which comes from the set.  The eclectic cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Daniel Radcliffe, Colin Quinn, Mike Birbiglia, LeBron James, and Method ManTrainwreck opens in theaters on July 24, 2015.

Check out the image below, which debuted over at the New York Times.

    Love Amy Schumer. Hope this turns out ok because she can be frickin rediculously funny. She has a great sense of humor, her standup is great too.

    Im an Apatow-guy, and I dig Schumer….but the whole “commitment-averse woman trying to get past her self-sabotaging ways” thing sounds super played out.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    So Schumer’s now mining Katherine Heigl territory, eh? Good luck to her. It worked out so well for Heigl.

    This sounds awful. Amy Schumer is incredibly unfunny.

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      It does sound pretty lame, but I don’t find her “unfunny.” I certainly don’t find her as funny as most — watched her first season on Comedy Central, and I just didn’t care for it — but this doesn’t sound like a break-out picture.

    • Kevin Carter

      I was going to ask if Train wreck is a comedy… I’, confused…. Amy Schumer and comedy do not really go together…

  • numnum

    They seem to be having a great time….almost too great

    Apatow has lost the plot since Knocked Up.

    This Is 40 and Funny People were dreadful.

    It’s shooting on film! (see the magazine on the back of camera in still)

    I’ve liked Amy Schumer’s comedy since she started appearing on Opie and Anthony back when she was merely Jim Norton’s opening act. She was always very natural in that room and those guys loved her. She never laid it on like “Hey, I’m a girl and I’m dirty!”

    I thought her show was very hit-and-miss, but then what sketch comedy show isn’t?

    With Apatow directing someone else’s script (especially one written by the star) hopefully it results in a tighter, more disciplined movie than the ones he has made in the past.
