Each week of the sweepstakes features a different Marvel Cinematic Universe film. Fans can post a photo of themselves on Twitter or Instagram and/or tweet their favorite personal memory from the film of the week using the film hashtag and #Marvel10YearSweepstakes to be entered for a chance to win.
Amy Schumer is making the jump from stand up comic and star of her own sketch comedy show to movie star – and in Judd Apatow’s fifth movie as a director, no less.
Trainwreck is about a woman whose take on relationships is based on her father’s words, ‘Monogamy isn’t realistic.’ (To be fair, he’d just gone through a painful divorce at the time.) Twenty-three years, Amy has a great job at a men’s magazine and a bunch of great friends. Then she’s assigned to interview a certain sports doctor…
Check out the first trailer after the jump. Trainwreck will be in theaters on July 17th.
The Gambler is a remake of the 1974 classic about a man with an addiction to gambling – to the point of endangering his life. In this version, a university professor gets in deep with three very deadly members of the gambling underworld. This version has a unique take on character that, just barely, allows for the possibility of a hopeful (if not necessarily happy) finale.
Every year, it seems like there’s at least one movie that has awful trailers but turns out to be amazing. In 2009, it was The Hangover. Last year, it was Bridesmaids. This year, it’s 21 Jump Street – a fast-paced crude comedy that pulls off its Judd Apatow-like mix of cringeworthy humor and heart with panache!
