UPDATE: I just got in from seeing Doctor Strange in IMAX 3D (the advance screening was in a regular old theater). When you read – or reread – my review, square it.  S.A. Wiebe

Marvel Studios has another winner on their hands. Doctor Strange is one of the best Marvel movies – and that’s saying something!

Trailers and online behind-the-scenes featurettes have been uniformly intriguing – showing us enough to tantalize without really spoiling anything major. Just the fact that the film’s heavy-duty cast – Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetal Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg – seemed to be having great fun was more than enough to suggest something special was going on.

Then to see it… Oh, my!

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.
