Hollywood's Fiercest Film Comedians are coming to Dublin! Amy Schumer, Bill Hader and Director Judd Apatow will be in town for a special event screening of their new film Trainwreck. Friday 14th August, The Savoy Cinema, 7.30pm - NOTE: TICKETS FOR THIS EVENT ARE NOW SOLD OUT.

Universal Pictures Ireland and the Dublin International Film Festival are proud to present the new comedy Trainwreck to Dublin audiences this summer in a special screening which will see red carpet appearances by director Judd Apatow and leading actors Amy Schumer and Bill Hader.

Trainwreck, Judd Apatow’s fifth feature film as director–producer, brings a portrait of an unforgettable character written by, and starring Amy Schumer (Inside Amy Schumer) as a woman who lives her life without apologies, even when maybe apologies are what are needed!

Apatow is renowned for introducing new comedy voices into the mainstream – Amy Schumer will be in great company alongside Seth Rogen, Lena Dunham, Chris O’Dowd and many more. Emmy award-nominated Bill Hader, a firm favourite on the US hit show Saturday Night Live for 8 years, is also well known for his roles in Superbad, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Adventureland and Tropic Thunder.

Amy (Amy Schumer) is a magazine writer, who lives by that credo—enjoying what she feels is an uninhibited life free from stifling, boring romantic commitment—but in actuality, she’s kind of in a rut. When she finds herself starting to fall for the subject of the new article she’s writing, a charming and successful sports doctor named Aaron Conners (Bill Hader), Amy starts to wonder if other grown-ups, including this guy who really seems to like her, might be on to something.

“2015 is proving to be the year of Amy Schumer, a pistol smart satirist, a Facebook feminist, a sassy screenwriter who has film friends in all the right places. She has clambered over her fellow comedic peers to ascend to the throne of this year's Comic Most Wanted and the Dublin International Film Festival is delighted to welcome her and I can't wait to meet her! The Festival is proud to work alongside Universal Pictures to present Trainwreck, maintaining its position at the forefront of bringing the most engaging and terrific guests and films to the city, and Trainwreck will be no exception” says Grainne Humphreys, Festival Director. “In other Festival news we are all eagerly looking forward to DIFF 2016 and we are excited to announce we will be returning to a February Festival in 2016, on new dates of February 18th- 28th.”
