We had a feeling that Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck would be like a spiritual sibling to Bridesmaids: a smart, modern, raunchy romantic comedy written by and starring a female comedy virtuoso. Now that we’ve gotten our first look at the trailer, that comparison feels even safer. Directed by Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids was helmed by Apatow’s Freaks and Geeks partner, Paul Feig), the movie stars Schumer as a writer at a men’s magazine who’s unlucky in love, until she meets a sweet and funny sports doctor played by Bill Hader. They’ve both got the best friend (hers is SNL’s Vanessa Bayer, his is LeBron James) and cosmopolitan jobs, adding up to your standard rom-com formula. Except coming from the mind of Amy Schumer—one of the sharpest voices in comedy—this is something else entirely. See for yourself below.
