Trainwreck and Masterminds Trailers
Comedian Amy Schumer has taken Hollywood by storm in anticipation of her big screen debut in Judd Apatow's summer comedy, Trainwreck. Schumer stars as a writer for a men's magazine that refuses to settle down with a man. Yet, once she experiences an intimate evening with a sports surgeon (Bill Hader) who also happens to be the subject of her next article, she tries to fight the urge to become monogamous. As expected with any Judd Apatow film, Trainwreck's running time hovers around the two-hour mark and all we can hope is that the laughs keep coming to help ease the mounting minutes. Trainwreck arrives in theaters everywhere on July 17th.
While Zach Galifianakis' comedy shtick has certainly grown tiresome over the passing years, the prospect of his latest based on a true story crime-comedy, Masterminds, has me intrigued. The film tells the story of David Ghantt (Galifianakis), a dim-witted driver of an armored car who breaks from his monotonous lifestyle and pulls off the largest heist in American history with the aid of his flirtatious co-worker, Kelly Campbell (Kristen Wiig), and the not-so criminal mastermind, Steve Chambers (Owen Wilson). Masterminds only boasts a PG-13 rating, which gives me a bit of skepticism for the August 19th release.
