The Tribeca Film Festival will open April 18 with Nicholas Stoller’s “Five-Year Engagement,” starring Jason Segel and Emily Blunt. Universal releases the comedy April 27. “Five Year Engagement” 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”). Said Stoller: “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.” The Festival runs through April 29; here’s more.
