By Jenn McKee

"The Five Year Engagement," the Jason Segel/Emily Blunt romantic comedy (co-produced by Judd Apatow) that was mostly filmed in Ann Arbor last year, will open the 2012 Tribeca Film Festival on April 18, according to

Director Nicholas Stoller was quoted as saying, "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 (TFF co-founder) Robert De Niro and look out over New York City at dusk."

The film follows a couple's long, complicated path from engagement to wedding, and other stars include Chris Pratt, Rhys Ifans, Alison Brie, and Mindy Kaling.

The film is slated for nationwide release on April 27.
