With 2015 already set to be utterly dominated by franchises, sequels and reboots -- "Insidious Chapter 3," "Fast & Furious 7," "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," "Mad Max: Fury Road," "Jurassic World," "The Fantastic Four," "Ted 2," "Terminator 5," "Bourne 5," "Hotel Transylvania 2," "Bond 24," "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2," "Star Wars: Episode 7," "Kung Fu Panda 3," "Mission: Impossible 5" are all due -- is there any room for something original? Universal is banking on it.

The studio has set Judd Apatow's next comedy "Trainwreck" for a July 24, 2015 release date, landing right right between the weekends "Batman Vs. Superman" and "Ant-Man" will be hitting theaters. It's a ballsy movie especially considering the film is being led by untested comedienne Amy Schumer, who has no shortage of fans, but has never opened a movie on her own. But clearly, the studio is confident by time it all wraps, it's going to be something worthy of a tentpole release.

There are no official plot details yet, but the film will reportedly center on a woman who's a "basket case," played by Schumer, who is trying to rebuild her life, with a boyfriend, parent and best friend all in the mix of characters she's dealing with. Casting is currently underway, and it's safe to say this will shoot later this year.

    We're going to see that opening paragraph for every non-franchise movie that gets announced for 2015, aren't we?

    What an embarrassingly unoriginal and boring slate of films coming up.
