Trainwreck is comedy director-producer Judd Apatow’s fifth feature film. Trainwreck presents a portrait of an unforgettable character written by, and starring 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.

Dublin International Film Festival Director Grainne Humphreys said, “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.”

Tickets for Trainwreck's Irish premier on August 14th are €11 and will be available now to purchase online.

The dates for the Dublin International Film Festival 2016 have also been announced as February 18th to 28th.
