Tribeca Film Festival To Premiere Romantic Comedy

Written by: FFT Webmaster | March 16th, 2012

The Tribeca Film Festival will open on April 18 with the world premiere of writer/director Nicholas Stoller’s FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT, a charming romcom starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, which Universal will release in theaters on April 27. The film picks up where many romantic comedies end — after the engagement. Co-written by Segel, it follows what happens when a couple keeps getting tripped up on a long walk down the aisle. Rhys Ifans, Chris Pratt and Alison Brie co-star. Stoller produced with Judd Apatow (BRIDESMAIDS) and Rodney Rothman (GET HIM TO THE GREEK). The director shared in a prepared statement that “we are so honored that the festival organizers have given us this platform to premiere the film. To be honest, this is all just a ploy to stand on top of a building with Robert De Niro and look out over New York City at dusk.”
