Amy Schumer had a sparkling enough day with yesterday’s official Season 4 renewal of Inside Amy Schumer, and all before anyone managed to catch the Season 3 premiere. Many a highlight are making the round, but none so spot-on and hysterical as Inside Amy Schumer’s Friday Night Lights parody, “Football Town Nights.”
Trainwreck comedienne Amy Schumer is certainly having a banner year, hosting the MTV Movie Awards, winning the Peabody and garnering rave early reviews for her first film, and the good times keep rolling. Before tonight’s Season 3 premiere of Inside Amy Schumer, Comedy Central has renewed the showcase for a fourth round in 2016.
Amy Schumer has built a sizable fan base thanks to her Comedy Central series, which showcases her specific brand of honest and often subversive sense of humor. There’s no denying her intense relatability — and it’s that quality that serves her well in her debut film, Trainwreck. Written and produced by Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow, the film centers on a fictional version of Schumer. We’ll never know how fictional this Amy is (and we shouldn’t), which makes her cinematic alter ego all the more appealing.
The Oscars can be very confusing and frustrating. So, if you're looking for an alternative, look no further than the MTV Movie Awards, which unveiled their 2015 nominations today. Oddly, they too are confusing and frustrating, albeit for completely different reasons.
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.
The dust has barely settled from the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, and already we’ve got a look at the lineup for the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival. After an initial announcement that included opening night film ‘Brand,’ about comedian Russell Brand,’ things have filled out really nicely with a ton of promising-sounding selections.
Just the other day, it was revealed that Jennifer Lawrence has met with Paul Feig, the director of the upcoming all-female ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot. Rebel Wilson also admitted to meeting with her ‘Bridesmaids’ director about the film. And now, thanks to another report on the hacked e-mails from Sony, we know that the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot has attracted interest from even more talented women: Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Lizzy Caplan, and Amy Schumer all want in on this exciting new project.
Over the weekend it was announced that Paul Feig is in negotiations to direct an all-female version of ‘Ghostbusters 3,’ which is the first bit of news to get us seriously interested since Phil Lord and Chris Miller’s names were briefly attached earlier this year. Feig, who also brought us ‘Bridesmaids’ and ‘The Heat,’ has given us some hilarious and truly great female-driven films. By making the new ‘Ghostbusters’ women, this project has so much more potential because there are so many insanely funny and talented women out there. We couldn’t help but put together a list of who we think should star in an all-female ‘Ghostbusters 3.’
HBO's 'The Newsroom' won't return until much later this year, even then taking a surprising season 3 bow-out to end the series, but the legacy of Aaron Sorkin parody remains as ripe as ever. Watch Amy Schumer and 'Sports Night' veteran Josh Charles capture that classic Sorkin style in new 'Inside Amy Schumer' parody 'The Foodroom.' And, yes, there's walk-and-talk.
Earlier this summer came word that Judd Apatow would be helping comedienne Amy Schumer develop her first movie at Universal Pictures. Apparently, things are developing so nicely, Apatow has decided to make Schumer's project, titled 'Train Wreck,' his next directorial project.
