Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, Judd Aptow coming to Dublin

Amy Schumer, Bill Hader, and Judd Aptow will be coming to Dublin this August as part of the Dublin International Film Festival.


The trio will be here to attend a special screening of their new collaboration, Trainwreck. The film was written by Schumer, who also plays the lead role, and stars Hader as her love interest, while Aptow directs.

The film follows Amy, a free-spirited journalist who feels no need or desire to tie herself down to one man. When she meets Aaron Conners, played by Bill Hader, they have a great night together, and part ways in the morning. But things take a turn for the weird when Aaron actually calls her the next day (on purpose!), leaving Amy clueless as to what she should do next….
