Trailer Watch is a first reaction viewing of the featured trailer (by me) where I give some light commentary and opinions on it. Trailers are a big deal, they are the first real impression a movie has on people and can have a huge impact on its success or failure which is why it is important for a studio to cut together the best possible trailer they can. While I do have some expectations or even some insight into many of the film trailers presented here, please take it all with a grain of salt and make your own opinion from what is shown (that is why I insist you see the trailer first each time). Most of all though, kick back and see if you agree with my off the cuff reactions. Watch the trailer and listen to my reaction after the break.
Every successful standup comedian eventual gets either their own movie or a sitcom and for Amy Schumer it is both. On top of her sketch comedy show on Comedy Central she is now also appearing in her very first feature film. While most of the time these ventures rely heavily on the comedian's ability to carry an entire film on their shoulders that is deeply rooted in their standup routine, in the case of Amy Schumer she has an ace her sleeve. By obtaining the services of Judd Apatow as the director (40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up, This Is 40) she may well have just made sure that her first shot on the big screen will be a winner. Check out my reaction to the trailer now.
