It’s here! The first trailer for Judd Apatow’s ‘Trainwreck,’ written by and starring the consistently delightful Amy Schumer! The film also marks something of a departure for Apatow, whose films have been mostly male-oriented. This time around, Schumer takes the spotlight as a successful, independent woman whose love life is a mess thanks to her deeply-ingrained aversion to monogamy. If we didn’t know any better, this could easily be a Paul Feig film—and that’s a compliment.

What happened when Elliot Rodger picked up a gun had little, if anything, to do with cinematic escapist fantasy, and everything to do with mental illness, misogyny, and a tragic confluence of factors that allowed a young man to claim six lives. In a recently published piece in the Washington Post, critic Ann Hornaday blames the media, as we often rush to do, for enabling the now infamous mass murderer who went on a killing spree before taking his own life in Isla Vista, California. But she's pointing her finger in the wrong direction.
