It's directed by Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who co-wrote Never Been Kissed and How to Be Single – they also co-wrote this.

However, response to the trailer has been mixed.

Amy Schumer ' s New Movie ' I Feel Pretty ' Cops A Lot Of Backlash . People are calling it a step backwards for body-positivity. - by Bianca M. Late last week, the trailer for Amy Schumer ' s new movie I Feel Pretty was released.

Isn't she Senator Chuck Schumer ' s niece? I feel like that explains why she keeps getting hired. It's a pretty funny trailer . I like how they kind of flipped the script on the body switching trope. And I like that it's a subversion of movies like Big , 13 Going on 30, etc.

"So the new Amy Schumer movie is about a woman who is half an inch from being conventionally Hollywood attractive (but rest-of-the-world attractive) who thinks she's rest-of-the-world-attractive? I have never been more confused in my life," she wrote.

"Amy Schumer is blonde, white, able-bodied, femme and yes, thin. She IS society's beauty ideal. So they give her a ponytail and remove her make-up and suddenly she's ugly? Why not just give her glasses or a fatsuit? What is wrong with this world?"

Viewers have only seen a a trailer , but they're already lashing out at Amy Schumer ' s latest film. The comedian released the trailer for her latest movie I Feel Pretty Thursday, in which her character gets a burst of confidence after falling off a SoulCycle studio bike.

"Who is this meant to resonate with? Before we can enjoy the premis [sic], surely we have to buy into the fact that she is not pretty. How many of us are bigger than her? Are we supposed to accept that THIS is ugly when it's all we've been taught that we should aim for?

"I have watched the trailer so many times now. Would it be funny if it was someone GENUINELY (conventionally) unattractive? Someone did not live up to a single beauty ideal? Or would it then be provocative to see someone undeserving of confidence actually feel confident?

"Amy Schumer feels like Hollywood's excuse. Like, LOOK, we put a FAT UGLY woman on TV because she has a teeny-tiny belly and also in this scene she doesn't wear make-up, so now we've fixed it. We're not longer shallow. F**k the f**k off.

"I understand that there are people who look exactly like Amy Schumer who do feel ugly or unattractive. But that doesn't change the fact that those people will still be treated better by society than someone actually fat, actually not white, actually not femme-passing.

The 'Venom' Trailer Didn't Show Venom, And Twitter Users Are Big Mad And Making Jokes

  The 'Venom' Trailer Didn't Show Venom, And Twitter Users Are Big Mad And Making Jokes It's not out till October - did the studio jump the gun?To be fair, there were more hints about the symbiote than some people might have realized. And who doesn’t want to see lots of Tom Hardy, sans CGI? There’s also the matter of the budget. Venom is a lower-budget movie, which gives them freedom to be more violent, but it also means they can’t rush the special effects work or they’d have to pay more. With the film not releasing till October, the special effects probably aren’t trailer-ready.

"Also how about instead of her 'hitting her head and damaging her brain' in order to become so deluded that she'd think she was ACTUALLY pretty, she read about capitalism and realised that women's low self-esteem is a patriarchal ploy and that she is worthy of self-love?

"I MEAN, SHE HITS HER HEAD AND THEN FEELS BEAUTIFUL. This movie legit had to become SCI-FI for it to be realistic. Only in a MAGICAL universe could she possibly feel pretty. HER - blonde, white, thin, femme, cis, blah, she is ALL THE THINGS AND STILL SHE IS NOT CONSIDERED PRETTY.

"I'm done, I'm out. Come back to me when you're ready to fight against the oppression of women instead of contributing to it. I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE AMY SCHUMER IS CONSIDERED UGLY. Go f**k yourself, Hollywood."

Not everyone agrees of course.

@shayndoesthings posted in response saying:

"I think you're missing the point. They're not saying she is ugly, so much as clearly not STUNNING, and that she lacks in self-confidence because she keeps comparing herself to model-like women. The bartender/her love interest dude are into her when she finally has confidence."

It's certainly a controversial area causing some to compare it to an internalised Shallow Hal (which starred Jack Black as a guy who is enchanted so he sees Gwyneth Paltrow in a fat suit as if she were Gwyneth Paltrow not in a fat suit).

I Feel Pretty opens in UK cinemas on July 6. In the US you can catch it from June 29.
