The first official trailer for Trainwreck, written by and starring Amy Schumer and directed by Judd Apatow, has hit the Internet. As one might expect from Schumer, it’s red-band. And as one might expect from the comedic pedigree of its writer and director, Trainwreck appears to be packed with Schumer and Apatow’s comedy buddies, like Colin Quinn as Amy’s dad, SNL’s Vanessa Bayer as her smoothie-sipping pal, Dave Attell as a smartass homeless guy, and Bill Hader as the sports doctor who might be the one to change Amy’s wanton ways.


WWE star/occasional actor John Cena and Cleveland’s prodigal son LeBron James also make appearances; James appears to play a significant supporting role in the film, actually, albeit as himself. Trainwreck marks Apatow’s first time directing a film written by someone else, and if he lets Schumer’s comedic voice shine through, Trainwreck could hopefully be a smash(ed) hit. We’ll find out when it hits theaters on July 17.
